A look at today’s Edmonton weather by Environment Canada.

Today begins what could be our hottest week ever.

Today will be the coolest day, with a high of 27 degrees, and the temperatures increase as we continue throughout the week. The forecast is calling for a daytime high of 38 degrees on Tuesday. 38 degrees? You must be joking!

For those who will be spending time outdoors, remember to wear a hat, drink lots of water, dress in light colours, find shade whenever you can, and wear sunscreen.

Take care out there everyone.
