Sunscreen, hats, and plenty of water are a good idea for the weekend. Environment Canada has issued heat warnings for much of western Manitoba.

Forecasters say that highs of at least 32 are expected over the next few days, and overnight there will not be much relief with temperatures going down to 16. Rising humidity levels will make it feel even hotter.

For Winnipeg, the high on Friday is 30. Saturday will see a high of 35, and with the humidity, it will feel closer to 45.

Environment Canada is urging people to take precautions.

Those precautions include:

- Consider rescheduling outdoor activities to cooler hours of the day.
- Take frequent breaks from the heat, spending time indoors at cooled buildings (including malls or indoor pools).
- Drink plenty of water and other non-alcoholic, non-caffeinated beverages to stay hydrated.
- Do not leave any person or pet inside a closed vehicle, for any length of time.

Environment Canada is also urging the following:

Monitor for symptoms of heat stroke or heat exhaustion, such as high body temperature, lack of sweat, confusion, fainting, and unconsciousness.

Particular vigilance is urged for vulnerable individuals, including children, seniors, individuals with pre-existing lung, heart, kidney, nervous system, mental health or diabetic conditions, outdoor workers, as well as those who are socially isolated.

Heat Warnings are issued when very high temperature or humidity conditions are expected to pose an elevated risk of heat illnesses, such as heat stroke or heat exhaustion.
