The fire risk in much of the backcountry already ranges from moderate to high due to dry conditions, wind and rising temperatures.
Janelle Lane, an Alberta Environment spokeswoman, says the risk could get worse if weather forecasts holds.
She says ATV drivers should check their vehicles for buildups of grass and other debris that could catch fire.
Lane says with no lightning at this time of year, the other main wildfire risk is unattended or improperly extinguished camp fires.
The province plans to have about 500 firefighters on standby this weekend along with a fleet of helicopters.
