It's going to be a hot weekend coming up. 

Environment and Climate Change Canada have issued heat warnings for the North Coast-inland, including Terrace and Kitimat.

Daytime high temperatures near 30 degrees Celsius combined with overnight lows near 13 degrees are expected from Saturday until Tuesday night.

The Province has not declared an extreme heat emergency for the region. 

However Northern Health is warning residents to prepare for hot tempertures, and find ways to stay cool. Check on Elders and those who live alone, and those who might be susceptible to heat due to health conditions. 

Of course, drink plenty of water, and use sun protection. 

Signs of heat exhaustion include heavy sweating, severe headache, muscle cramps, extreme thirst and dark urine. If you are experiencing these symptoms, you should seek a cooler environment, drink plenty of water, rest, use water to cool your body and monitor your symptoms. 

Signs of heat stroke include loss of consciousness, disorientation, confusion, severe nausea or vomiting and very dark urine or no urine. Heat stroke is a medical emergency.

In case of a medical emergency, like heat stroke, call 911.

However Northern Health reminds us, it's important to avoid overwhelming the system.
