Paddleboarding on Whistler's Alta Lake is one way to stay cool during hot weather.

Summer weather is finally arriving in the Sea to Sky.

After weeks of rain, Whistler's weekend forecast calls for sunshine and rising temperatures.

According to a special weather statement issued for the area by Environment Canada, daytime highs should reach the low 30s this weekend.

"There will be some respite from the elevated daytime temperatures as overnight lows fall into the mid-teens," the statement reads.

The heat is expected to last until Tuesday. With elevated temperatures, the risk of heat-related illnesses and sunburn increases, so the public is advised to wear sunscreen and keep hydrated.

Due to the rapid rise in temperatures and a delayed freshet, increased snowpack instability and faster stream flows due to run-off are also expected.

Locals should keep an eye on the British Columbia River Forecast Centre and Avalanche Canada
