This week expects to be a hot one.
Not just in Regina, but across much of Saskatchewan.
Environment Canada has issued a heat advisory for the southern and central parts of the province.
An upper ridge is over British Columbia and will be building over the prairies in the coming days.
Meteorlogist with Environment Canada in Winnipeg Justin Shaer said because of that, it’s going to be hot.
“We’re going to be getting prolonged, like four or five days in a row of highs exceeding 30 degrees easily,” he said. “We’re talking about highs around 35 for about three, four, almost five days straight.”
Shaer said though, overnight, it will cool off a bit.
“The overnight lows may drop a bit below what the provincial jurisdictions have set as the guidelines for the heat warnings, but that’s only by a couple degrees,” he said. “Usually, you’re looking at around 17 degrees or so,”
Shaer says conditions expect to cool into the weekend, when the ridge moves off and cooler air comes in.
At this time, an advisory is in place. A heat warning may still be issued as the week progresses.
