Environment Canada issues heat warning for Edmonton

Aug 6 2020, 12:38 pm

Edmonton is currently under a heat warning from Environment Canada as temperatures in the city exceed 29°C.

The weather agency says Edmontonians should consider rescheduling outdoor activities to cooler times of the day, and remember to take frequent breaks from the heat by spending time in cool, indoor spaces if possible.

Environment Canada also cautioned residents against leaving pets or children in hot cars when temperatures are this high.

The heat warning will remain in effect until Friday, when temperatures are expected to return to seasonal normals.

Until then, Environment Canada says to drink plenty of water.
