Calgary may have been spared the heat warning that a large part of Alberta was issued on Monday morning, but it’s looking like that omission may be short-lived.
The Weather Network’s weekly forecast for the city is calling for a high of 30°C as early as Tuesday, though it’s expected to feel closer to 35°C.

Following what has been a relatively cool — if frightfully stormy — summer this year, the higher temperatures may just bring a heat warning down onto Calgary, meaning that heatstroke or heat exhaustion could be cause for concern.
The weather will cool off somewhat as we head further into the week, however, with Wednesday and Saturday seeing 40% chances of showers and temperatures in the low 20s.
Friday will be the second hottest day of the week, if all goes according to forecast, with sunny skies and a high of 26°C (that feels like 28°C).
Tuesday and Friday will both see 14 hours of sun, while Thursday is expected to feature 15.
Remember to stay hydrated out there, and to make the most of the sunny days here in YYC!
