Scorching temperatures have pounded southern Saskatchewan over the past week.
And it appears they’ll continue to do so, at least throughout the next few days.
A heat warning is in effect for much of Saskatchewan and Manitoba.

“Looks like temperatures will reach in the 35 to 36 degree range both Friday and Saturday,” said Environment Canada meteorologist Terri Lang. “Then, we’ll see a cooling off towards Sunday as the upper ridge that’s giving us this hot weather is going to break down.”
An air quality statement has also been issued as well, this in regards to the smoky skies caused by the smoke iminating from the wildfires in British Columbia.
Right now, Lang said conditions are in the moderate category, but people do need to take care in the coming days.
“Combine that (smoky skies) with the really hot temperatures, it’s kind of a recipe for disaster with people with pre-existing health conditions,” she said.
