It's going to be hot and sticky for the next couple days.

Environment Canada has issued a heat warning for all three Maritime provinces for Monday and Tuesday.

Temperatures are expected in the 30 C range, with humidex values reaching 37. Cooler conditions can be expected along parts of the coast.

The warning does not include parts of northwest New Brunswick.

Heat warnings are issued when very high temperature or humidity conditions are expected to pose an elevated risk of heat illnesses, such as heat stroke or heat exhaustion.

It's the second heat warning issued for the region in the last three weeks.

Environment Canada is advising people to schedule outdoor activities during the coolest parts of the day and never leave people, particularly children, or pets inside a parked vehicle.
