A heat warning issued Sunday for parts of Alberta continued Tuesday - with cooler temperatures and some rain in the forecast.

The heat warning is expected to end on Wednesday, but then an entirely different - though no less risky - weather front will move in, with a chance of thunderstorms hitting Calgary by Wednesday afternoon.

Heat warnings have also been issued for other areas of the province, from northern areas surrounding Spruce Grove, Fort Saskatchewan and Bonnyville through to the southern edge of the province surrounding Lethbridge and Cypress Hills Provincial Park.

Temperatures are expected to be in the high 20's in coastal areas and more than 30 degrees inland.

High temperatures are looking to stick around for a few days this week, as Environment Canada has issued heat warnings for parts of the province. Overnight lows in the high teens will provide little respite from the heat until mid-week.

Officials are warning the public of health risks associated with these soaring temperatures.

Never leave children or pets in hot cars.

"Check on older family, friends and neighoburs".

Some effects to watch for include swelling, cramps, rash, fainting, heat exhaustion, heat stroke and the worsening of some health conditions.

The Lake Cowichan Fire Department posted about the upgraded danger rating to Facebook and reminded campers to make sure campfires are fully extinguished.
