Don’t let these clouds hovering above today trick you.

After a relatively cool start to the weekend, temperatures will be on the rise again beginning Sunday.

Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement stating a short-live heat wave is expected to arrive on Father’s Day.

Temperatures are expected to be 5 to 10 degrees above seasonal on Sunday and Monday, according to the weather agency.

The heat wave is expect to hit several areas across BC, including southern Vancouver Island and the southern Gulf Islands.

Current indicators show that the day time temperatures will peak in the low-thirties through Monday at locations away from the immediate coast.

The ridge associated with this warm spell will start shifting inland on Tuesday, ushering the hot air into the Interior.

So make sure to sunscreen up and enjoy the warm weather, safely!
