It's no secret this week is a scorcher, and Estevan, as well as much of southeast Saskatchewan, is under a heat warning issued by Environment Canada.
The hot weather is expected to last throughout the week before temperatures return to normal next week.
According to Environment Canada, it's a ridge of high pressure that's causing the high temperatures in much of southern Saskatchewan.
The Saskatchewan Health Authority is advising people to stay out of the heat when possible, consumer plenty of cool beverages that aren't caffeinated or alcoholic, take cool baths and showers, and look out for others - particularly those who are isolated, ill, very young, or elderly, as they may be more susceptible.
An air-quality statement is also in effect for Estevan and the surrounding areas.
