“These high temperatures are forecast to persist through the week in some regions of southern Alberta, while areas in northern Alberta will moderate tonight,” it said.

The agency advised people to monitor for symptoms of heat exhaustion, take breaks from the heat, drink lots of water and check for children and pets before they exit their vehicle.

“Do not leave any person or pet inside a closed vehicle, for any length of time,” it said.
