Alberta is enduring a record-setting heat wave that has enveloped western Canada and Edmontonians are doing what they can to stay cool.

Environment Canada has put the entire province under a heat warning, as daytime high temperatures continue to top 30 C and overnight lows will stay above 15 C.

These conditions are expected to end some time Monday, when daytime highs drop around seasonal, the alert says.

On Thursday afternoon, Environment Canada predicted temperatures will drop to 23 C on Sunday, then 24 C Monday. It may rain Tuesday.

Edmontonians, in the meantime, are doing what they can to beat the heat, from riding slip-and-slides, to eating ice cream.
