The hot weather had Environment Canada issuing a number of severe thunderstorm warnings and watches across southern Saskatchewan Friday night.
While the city of Regina is not included, surrounding areas were under a warning — including Fort Qu’Appelle, Indian Head, Lumsden and Pilot Butte.
The Moosomin, Grenfell, Kipling, Wawota, Yorkton, Melville and Esterhazy areas were also included in the warning.
The severe thunderstorm watches remain in effect as southwest as the Assiniboia and Estevan regions, and as far southeast as the Carlyle and Preeceville areas.
Environment Canada said the storm system could bring very strong wind gusts, nickel to ping pong ball size hail and torrential rain.
In the case of a severe thunderstorm, the weather agency suggested staying inside and, if possible, avoid driving.
Meanwhile, a dozen of heat warnings continue to plague southern Saskatchewan.
The city of Regina, the southeast corner of the province and the northern areas of the province, including Prince Albert and the Battlefords, are all included in the warning.
Environment Canada said that beginning on Thursday “maximum daily temperatures near or exceeding 32 C, and minimum overnight lows near or exceeding 16 C” will be present.
The weather agency added people should watch for the symptoms of heat illness including: swelling, rash, cramps, fainting, heat exhaustion, heat stroke and the worsening of some health conditions.
Environment Canada also reminded people to never leave children or animals in vehicles as it could be deadly.
