Environment Canada says a series of disturbances tracking across the northern grainbelt will usher a hot air mass into the region Friday, with temperatures climbing into the low thirties.

Temperatures will remain warm tonight with overnight lows falling into the mid to upper teens then climb back up into the low to mid-thirties Saturday.

When combined with the humidity humidex values in the upper thirties are expected for Saturday. Conditions are expected to improve slightly Saturday night as a cold front slides eastward across the region.

These conditions will be very close to heat warning criteria and the Mercury will have any possible warnings.
