In Prince Albert at 1 p.m. Thursday, the weather hit 28 C and felt like 35 C when factoring in humidity.

Temperatures were expected to remain around the 30 C mark in Prince Albert until they drop to 23 C in the midst of rainy conditions on Sunday.

Lyle Karasiuk, Prince Albert Parkland Ambulance Care’s director of public affairs, is cautioning people to remain hydrated.

“We’ve seen a fair number of heat exhaustion people -- again, no particular group or class or age group,” Karasiuk said. “We’ll see them usually day three, day four into a stretch of heat.

The trick is to stay cool however possible and to drink plenty of water proactively, before one feels thirsty.
