Another heat warning issued for Kamloops and region

It's going to be a hot week across the prairies as temperatures reach the 30-degree mark.

The weather warning statement online said the humidity and wind will be low but the UV index will be high throughout the heat wave.

Heat stroke or heat exhaustion is possible for some people.

Drink plenty of water even before you feel thirsty and stay in a cool place.

Environment Canada issued a Special Weather Advisory stating extreme heat is expected to hit most the province this week.

Temperatures in and around Kamloops are expected to exceed 35°C today and will get up to around 40°C on by Thursday.

The smoke is expected to blow out of the area by the end of the week, and Environment Canada says temperatures will likely return to moderate levels over the weekend. "Overnight minimum temperatures will only recover to the upper teens to 20 degrees for the next couple of nights". Significant cooling will occur on Saturday as a cold front moves through the area.

"Every province or region has a different criteria across Canada and this was made in conjunction with Health Canada, Environment Canada, and each provincial health agency", she said.

The warning states "the risks are greater for young children, pregnant women, older adults, people with chronic illnesses and people working or exercising outdoors".

A special air quality statement is in place for most of Saskatchewan for August 9, 2018.

Environment Canada issued an air quality statement late Wednesday morning saying the smoke "is causing poor air quality and reducing visibility".
