Remarkable 30-degree heat returns.

Heat warning

Environment Canada has issued a heat warning for Prince Albert, North Battleford, Melfort and northern Saskatchewan for temperatures reaching 30 degrees combined with overnight lows near 14 degrees for the next three days.

WATCH BELOW: Saskatchewan looks poised to bask in the summer sun this week with daily highs topping 30 degrees.

A ridge of high pressure continues to build over the western prairies and with it will come a very warm airmass producing daytime high temperatures near 30 degrees and humidex values up to 34.

Temperatures are not expected to cool off until mid-week.

Weather forecast

Monday

Saskatoon and Regina started off the week in low double digits early Monday before the mercury soared into the mid-20s heading into the noon hour under mostly sunny skies.

A few more clouds will bubble up during the afternoon as both cities continue heating up into the high 20s with humidex values in the low 30s.

Monday night

Conditions will cool back into the mid-teens Monday night as clear skies linger.

Tuesday

A mix of sun and cloud will kick off the day on Tuesday before skies clear to bring about a mostly sunny late morning and afternoon.

Temperatures soar during the day, making their way back into the low 30s, but with humidity, it will feel like the mid-30s as a major upper ridge pushes through.

Besides a few clouds slipping through, Tuesday will be mostly sunny in Saskatoon and Regina.

Wednesday-Friday

A system developing in Alberta will build clouds in during the day on Wednesday, bringing in a return to the severe thunderstorm risk later in the day with afternoon highs soaring back into the 30s.

Clouds and showers will linger behind the system on Thursday in Saskatoon with daytime highs knocked back into the low 20s as drier conditions prevail in Regina before both cities rebound to the mid-20s on Friday.

The next system with a chance of showers presses into Alberta on Wednesday.
