Environment Canada has issued heat warnings for most of New Brunswick as an extended period of hot and humid weather is expected to hit the province.

The exceptions are the Fundy coastline and northwestern New Brunswick, where the province won't quite reach the warning criteria.

Temperatures for Thursday, Friday and the weekend will be in the low 30s for most areas, with cooler temperatures along the coast.

The humidity is looking set to ease somewhat for Saturday, but the relief will be short-lived as very muggy air looks set to return again for Sunday, said CBC meteorologist Ryan Snoddon.

Nighttime temperatures will bring little relief with lows in the high teens near 20.
