First Heat Warning of the Year Issued
The first heat warning of the year has been issued, but where is issued is a bit odd.
There is a heat warning in effect for Ft. Liard Region including Nahanni Butte - Sambaa K'e.
The area is located in the southern Northwest Territories.
Daytime high temperatures are expected to reach 30 degrees Celsius combined with overnight lows in the mid teens.
This trend is expected to continue through the middle of the week.
Heat warnings are issued when very high temperature or humidity conditions are expected to pose an elevated risk of heat illnesses, such as heat stroke or heat exhaustion.
