A heat warning was in effect in Churchill, Man., on Monday with the area expecting to see daytime highs around 30 C.

Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) issued the warning around 4 a.m. Monday, but said warm temperatures will continue after the long weekend wraps up.

As of Tuesday morning, the heat warning for Churchill has ended; however, another has been issued for Tadoule Lake.

The organization recommends people living in the affected region take steps to prevent heat illnesses and stay cool.

Some symptoms to look out for include swelling, rash, cramps and fainting.
