Environment Canada issues Special Weather Advisory over high temps

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. The Estevan area had previously been under a special weather statement due to the temperatures experienced in the last few days. "Some areas towards the Manitoba border will not see the extreme heat until Friday".

Environment Canada said the hot weather is expected to return to the province this week, with the mercury is set to soar by mid-week over the southern interior as a strengthening ridge of high pressure draws hot air up from the western U.S. Temperatures will moderate somewhat through the course of the weekend. Overnight minimum temperatures will only recover to the upper teens to 20 degree mark.
