A heat advisory also issued by Environment Canada for the region — with temperatures in the area expecting to hit 30C on Tuesday afternoon — remained in effect going into Tuesday. If the mercury hits 30 in Lac La Biche later on Tuesday, it will break a 2009 record temperature of 27.3C .
Tuesday is the only hot day of the weeks, however, as temperatures from Wednesday through to the weekend are expected to be in the mid-20s for most of the Lakeland.
