Much of Vancouver Island is feeling the first heat wave of the year and a special statement has come from Environment Canada Monday morning.
Only north Vancouver Island is spared from the Environment Canada alert, which calls for sunny skies and temperatures about 10 degrees above normal for mid-June.
Greater Victoria, east, inland and west Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands are all included in the advisory.
Port Alberni is forecast to reach 36 degrees Celsius Monday and highs are expected in the low-to-mid 30s through Wednesday.
Nanaimo and Campbell River have highs off 33 degrees Monday and Victoria is forecast to reach 29 degrees.
The Gulf Islands are expected to be around 27 degrees Monday.
Environment Canada says a strong ridge of high pressure has taken over B.C. and should stick around until Wednesday.
Conditions are expected to cool off a bit Thursday, although temperatures will remain warm heading into next weekend.
