"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.

Environment Canada said a Heat Warning remains as a ridge of high pressure slowly moving eastward over the southern Interior will result in continued how weather through Friday. Check on older family, friends and neighbours.

And it goes without saying, but "never leave people or pets inside a parked vehicle" in this kind of heat.

Environment Canada has also issued a heat warning for North Battleford and area with temperatures expected to reach 35 degrees.

Temperatures in and around Kamloops are expected to exceed 35°C today and will get up to around 40°C on by Thursday.

Whitmer asked the supporters of El-Sayed - who was endorsed by Vermont Sen. "I like lower taxes", he said. You will have a Big win in November and be a tremendous Governor for the Great State of MI .

But what's considered a heat warning on P.E.I. may not be considered a heat warning in other parts of Canada, said Jill Maepea, meteorologist with Environment Canada.

The warm weather will continue through to the weekend and by early next week temperatures will return to normal. Significant cooling will occur on Saturday as a cold front moves through the area.

A special air quality statement is in place for most of Saskatchewan for August 9, 2018.

Forecasters have issued a heat warning for the South Thompson including Kamloops, and the Okanagan including Vernon, Kelowna and Penticton as daytime temperatures are expected to reach or exceed 35 Celsius today, August 7.

It's going to be a hot week across the province.
