Highs above 30 degrees are in the forecast to begin the week.

Hot weather dominated the weekend, and it was capped off with a special weather statement concerning air quality around 7:30 PM on Sunday.

That smoke is expected to linger today and tomorrow. Unwavering hot conditions should leave that smoke in a standstill until we get a slight breeze in the area closer to mid-week.

Highs of 32 could lead to a heat warning being activated for the area. It's expected to remain warm into the evening with lows of 14 both Monday and Tuesday.

According to Environment Canada, in southern parts of Saskatchewan a heat warning is only issued when two or more consecutive days of daytime maximum temperatures are expected to reach 32 degrees or warmer, and nighttime minimum temperatures are expected to fall to 16 degrees or warmer. The same criteria exists for humidex values above 38 or higher.
