Environment Canada has issued a heat warning for Wheatland County. 

The heat warning was announced on Saturday (July 6) just before 4 p.m., and affects Strathmore, Lyalta, and Carseland.

According to Environment Canada, a building upper ridge will bring extremely warm temperatures to the province on Sunday, with daytime high temperatures starting at 30°C before increasing to 35°C by the middle of the week.

Residents and visitors are asked to take precautions, such as taking breaks from the heat, drinking plenty of water, and not leaving people or pets inside a closed vehicle.

Heat warnings are issued when very high temperatures pose a risk of heat stroke and exhaustion.
