Greater Victoria is forecast to reach into the high 20s until Thursday before slightly cooling into the lower 20s by Friday.

Meanwhile, Environment Canada anticipates Tofino to stay mid-to-low 20s through the week.

“Seek a cool place such as a tree-shaded area, swimming pool, shower or bath, or air-conditioned spot like a public building,” the heat warning reads.

Forecasters are also urging British Columbians to never leave people or pets inside a parked vehicle and for outdoor workers to take regularly scheduled breaks in cool places.
