CALGARY (660 NEWS) – Keep the water handy if you’re heading outdoors as another heat warning is blanketing Calgary.

Environment Canada has issued the warnings for the city and a large portion of the province from as north as Fort McMurray and to the south at Cardston, Lethbridge and Foremost.

Temperatures are expected to hit the 30-degree mark or warmer in the next couple days and start to cool down heading into Friday.

Environment Canada recommends you consider rescheduling outdoor activities to cooler hours of the day and take frequent breaks from the heat in cooled indoor spaces.

You should also stay well hydrated and not leave pets or children unattended in vehicles.
