Six provinces and two territories have issued heat advisories

The heat wave in Canada continues, with heat warnings in six provinces and two territories. Atlantic Canada, Newfoundland, and Labrador are the only exceptions. Temperatures are forecasted to reach close to 30 degrees in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island, with humidex values expected to reach 37 degrees. Southern and coastal British Columbia is expected to soar to or above 30 degrees Celsius, with some areas reaching 35 degrees. Alberta is mostly covered under a heat warning, with daytime highs near 30 degrees before moderating on Monday. Lloydminster, Saskatchewan is also forecasted to be similar. Yukon communities, including Whitehorse, Pelly, and Watson Lake, are expected to remain above seasonal norms into next week. Environment Canada warns that the high temperatures could increase the risk of heat stroke or heat exhaustion, particularly for young children, pregnant women, older adults, people with chronic illnesses, and outdoor workers.
