In a statement issued by Environment Canada today a heat warning is in effect for Calgary over the next two days.
“A period with maximum daily temperatures reaching near 29°C or above and minimum overnight temperatures of near 14C or above is expected to last through Saturday for most regions and through the weekend for areas in the southeastern part of the province.”
Temperatures in Calgary are expected to reach a high of 32°C on Saturday with the real feel around 34°C.
Stampeders take notice – it’ll be a hot weekend so you’ll need to stay hydrated and take breaks in the shade when heading down to the grounds.
Officials have put together a few tips to survive the heat:
- Consider rescheduling outdoor activities to cooler hours of the day.
- Take frequent breaks from the heat, spending time outdoors at your house or at cooled public buildings (including malls or indoor pools).
- Drink plenty of water and other non-alcoholic, non-caffeinated beverages to stay hydrated.
- Do not leave any person or pet inside a closed vehicle, for any length of time.
