Oh man, I miss Lake Huron so much. Turquoise waters, the teapots... Bruce Peninsula. *sigh*

Nice morning yesterday hiking around Mt. Robson, then rain came and it was only 13C in Jasper yesterday afternoon. Then very cool in Edmonton overnight. Now back in Ontario and really noticing the humidity.

Last night was cool. felt like fall weather.

But my commute bike ride in this morning was nice and sunny. Looks good out right now.

I might celebrate regatta day as well. Or at least have a drink.

^ Gorgeous temps in the interior. We had mostly +32ish while in the Kootenays and Okanagan. Fantastic weather for hanging out on the pebbly beach at Sunnyside

17 to 21 and sunny in Victoria just after 11am. Forecast for today is for a mix of sun and cloud with a high of 25 and a bit humid.

Yesterday was perfect again : sunny with highs of 24 (airport); 28 (UVIC) & 30 (Langford).

Hot spot on the Island yesterday was Lake Cowichan @ 32.

This day was fucking perfect. We did the Royal St. John's Regatta, say Trudeau, hiked Red Cliff, lounged on Middle Cove Beach, enjoyed the view from Topsail Bluff, visited Landwash Brewery in Mount Pearl for the first time... and tonight we are going to the cat cafe after-hours to play Cards Against Humanity.

Trudeau! Someone booed him and the crowd was NOT having it. Very loud, angry applause.

Kind of amazed by the lack of security. No checks at all heading to the Regatta, and you could walk right up to where he was. Lots of police and security around, of course, but absolutely no checks of your person, bags, etc.









And it was a fine day on clothes for the poor...



...and rich alike!



And the Regatta was packed. The lake was blocked the whole way 'round.

Lack of security sorta says a lot. no helicopter buzzing, no long caravans of cars.

I have friends in a number of police services out here and there is quite a bit of security, you just don't see it. It also says a lot about the mentality of Canadians. "The ballot is mightier than the Gun".

Its great to see you have good weather for this.

Next year I fear will be cool and damp, The year my wife and I finally get out to the regatta.

Oh he did have a long caravan of cars waiting on the other side of the lake for him. And there was a helicopter, but unsure if it's related because there often (but not always) is.

Cool and damp is fine too. It was warm today, uncomfortably so out of the shade - but the breeze was cool. You can pick out the tourists in those pics because they're the ones with jackets and hoodies and the like.

It's been another beautiful day in Vancouver, sunny, about 26°C, 25.4 ° at the airport, and similar inland. There seems to be some haze most days now though, perhaps from the Russian wildfires.

Another gorgeous day here , sunny skies and 28C feeling like 32C with humidity! A perfect summer day in my opinion.

Looking at the long range and weeklies, the next 10 days will be on the cooler side for most of Canada from Alberta to Quebec, with most days averaging slightly below seasonal. No real heat anywhere in the country.

After this, heat begins to build across Southern/Eastern Ontario into Southern Quebec and Maritimes by Aug 18th-20th as a ridge of high pressure anchors in just off the US east coast and pumps hot air into the region. It looks to remain on the warm side right into September, so summer is not done at all in this region. Expect several more hot and steamy days to finish up the season. Out west however..... August looks to be a cool month for Alberta into Saskatchewan, a trend that will continue into early September. Look out for mountain snows.
