Looks like we're in for ideal long-weekend weather.

Environment & Climate Change Canada Meteorologist Samantha Mauti says we're likely to fall just under the criteria for a heat warning.

"The heat criteria for the Okotoks region is for any two consecutive two days or longer, the maximum temperature needs to be 29 degrees Celsius or greater as well as a minimum of 14 degrees. For the weekend, highs are forecast to be in the mid-to-high 20s, I have 25 and 27 forecast for Saturday and Sunday respectively, then 27 again for Mondy. So close, but not quite."

It's still above the norm, though.

"With the forecast highs in the mid-to-high 20s, that does put you above seasonal for this time of year. Your normal high temperature at this point in the summer is 23 degrees Celsius, so warm but not super warm," says Mauti.

We may see a bit of rain in the Foothills, with a chance tonight and on Monday.
