Environment Canada is warning that the Fort will be hit with a near-record heat wave.
 
Temperatures will gradually climb throughout the week and into the weekend.
 
"Currently, we're expecting temperatures Friday, Saturday and Sunday to peak in those low 30 degree ranges," said Environment Canada meteorologist Dan Kulak.
 
Overnight lows will still be quite warm, hovering in the 17 and 18 degree range.
 
Although humidity isn't expected to be an issue during the week, it's anticipated to become a factor moving into the weekend.
 
"Stay hydrated, stay out of the sun if you don't have to be there, stay in the shade," advised Kulak
 
"Don't put pets in cars, don't put people in cars with the windows rolled up so really, watch your pets, watch your children, watch the elderly during times of extreme heat."
 
Kulak isn't expecting any severe weather outbreaks at this time, but warns that the odd thunderstorm could roll through the region.
 
The record temperature for the area was set back in 1937 when the mercury hit 37C.
