Heat warnings issued for several parts of Saskatchewan

Get out the sunscreen and turn those fans or that air conditioning on.

Heat warnings were issued Sunday afternoon for western and central Saskatchewan including Kindersley, Rosetown, Swift Current, Saskatoon, the Battlefords, Prince Albert, Shaunavon and the Cypress Hills.

An upper ridge of high pressure is building into the province from the West coast. It will bring a hot airmass with daytime high temperatures of low to mid 30 degrees and nighttime low temperatures near 20 degrees. These temperatures are about 10 degrees above seasonal and may potentially break daytime high temperature records.

Temperatures will drop to more comfortable, near seasonal temperatures Wednesday after a cold front sweeps through the province.

Regina is not included in the warning, but the temperature on Monday is to hit 30 degrees and 33 on Tuesday before dropping into the mid-20’s on Wednesday.
