Environment Canada has issued a heat warning for much of B.C. for Monday, including Kelowna and Penticton.

A heat warning has been issued for Greater Victoria, east Vancouver Island and the Southern Gulf Islands, with highs forecast to reach near 30 degrees.

Environment Canada says temperatures will rise to daytime highs of at least 28 degrees in inland areas while overnight lows will hover around 16 degrees.

Environment Canada says temperatures are not out of the ordinary for this time of year, but warns extreme heat carries health risks - especially for young children, pregnant women, the elderly, those with chronic illnesses or anyone working or exercising outdoors.

Extremely hot conditions put people at risk of heat stroke and people should be vigilant in monitoring their friends and family for symptoms which include high body temperature, lack of sweat, confusion, fainting and unconsciousness.

While the weather is expected to cool down later this week, Environment Canada is advising those in affected areas to take care.

"Check-in on those who live alone. The severe weather threat will diminish this evening", the national weather agency said in its advisory Monday morning.

Be sure to drink plenty of water, even before you feel thirsty.

The Coastal Fire Centre has already banned category 2 open fires, but has not yet issued a sweeping campfire ban for Vancouver Island.
