The summer months are winding down into another fall, and yet, it appears that the warmest season of the year isn't quite willing to let go.
According to Meteorologist Natalie Hasell with Environment Canada, more hot and dry weather is ahead for the weekend.
"We're looking at temperatures well above normal for this time of year. Normal is around 20 degrees max during the day, so it's a remarkable thing. I don't think we're breaking any records, however, it's still quite warm."
She noted that a humidex reaching near the 37 degree mark for Saturday could make things rather uncomfortable.
"It's important to pay attention to people around you, and how you yourself are feeling. If you start feeling unwell with no obvious reason, it might be the heat, so go find a place to cool off. Make sure that's in your plans."
A shift in winds will also occur over the weekend, and the tempeatures will begin to cool slightly, then rise once again into the work week.
"We do not have any precipitation in the forecast for the southeast corner of Saskatchewn for the next while," Hasell added.
However, recent special air quality statements mean that the possiblilty of more smoke exists.
"If we take a look, fires are obviously burning in British Columbia, the States just to the south, and parts of Alberta. But we also have fires here in Saskatchewan, and because of the air circulation, the smoke from those is being directed great distances sometimes."
She reminded residents to watch out for breathing problems that could present themselves to those at risk in such air, as well as to ensure protection from heat.
