Environment Canada has issued for a large portion of Alberta including the central Alberta area. Heat warnings are issued when high temperatures pose a risk to human health. 

Here are some tips on avoiding heat-related illness:

  • Consider rescheduling outdoor activities to the cooler hours of the day
  • Take frequent breaks from the heat
  • Drink lots of water
  • Do not leave people, children or pets in a closed vehicle for any length of time. 

Cooler weather is expected to return on Friday.
