Environment Canada has issued a Heat Warning for Red Deer and much of Central Alberta. 

A period with maximum daily temperatures reaching near 29C or above and minimum overnight temperatures near 14C or above is expected Friday into Saturday evening.

The heat warning is in effect for: 

- City of Red Deer

By Saturday evening, Environment Canada says a low pressure system is expected to bring scattered showers and cooler temperatures to the region.

In the meantime, residents and visitors are advised to take precautions to protect themselves, their families and their neighbours from the dangers posed by hot weather.

A Heat Warning is issued by Environment Canada when very high temperature conditions are expected to pose an elevated risk of heat illnesses, such as heat stroke or heat exhaustion.
