Temperatures reaching 35 degrees Celsius are expected.

Environment Canada warns that swelling, rash, cramps, fainting, heat exhaustion and heat stroke are all effects of heat illness.

The weather office says the inner south coast - including eastern Vancouver Island, the Sunshine Coast, Howe Sound, the southern Gulf Islands, Victoria and Vancouver - will see temperatures climb to at least 28 C, although conditions should be cooler close to the water.

The risk of severe thunderstorms is associated with a cold front moving from west to east over northeastern Ontario today.

Large hail can damage property and cause injury. Remember, when thunder roars, go indoors!

"Remember, severe thunderstorms can produce tornadoes".

The Lake Cowichan Fire Department posted about the upgraded danger rating to Facebook and reminded campers to make sure campfires are fully extinguished.
