Jumpin' Jesus. I know St. John's has a seasonal lag compared to the rest of us, and we've all been hit with a late spring this year - but surely snow at the end of May must still be unheard of?

Unfortunately no. Early May I'd say is common. That gradually improves to a few times in your life by late May. Overall this has been a good spring for us, until this last storm. It was perfectly positioned to funnel cold Arctic air down over us.

Actually, I guess you're only about a month behind here. It's not uncommon to have dustings in early April, and this year it hadn't all melted until about the 20th. I think my sense of time has just been thrown a little off by our literal 2-week transition from winter to summer this year.

I guess historically St. John's receives 4.4 cm of snow in May, and 0.04 cm of snow in June (lol). It really isn't uncommon for it to happen late into May, but it's never a big event. A few flurries, upset people, social media posts, and melted again by noon hour. A large dumping of snow (over 30 cm) in central NL for this time of year is pretty uncommon, but it definitely isn't the first time it's happened, nor will it be the last.

I am however getting real sick of seeing the national media post stories with titles like "Newfoundland gets dumped with snow" and then seeing people tag their friends from St. John's asking them how they're feeling. It's the equivalent of a news article saying "Ontario slammed by snow storm" when in reality it snowed in Thunder Bay but we're asking our friends in Toronto how they're coping.

That's mostly central and western NL (although there was some snow in northeastern NB and briefly in PEI as well).

Currently 22C in Moncton,humid and we're having a thunderstorm.

We hit our first 30 degree day today

It wasn't very humid either so it was really nice out.

Forecast: 30/25/30/23/27/25

Still snowing in Gander (0C & light snow) and St. John's (same)........

Meanwhile we had a thundershower in Moncton this evening dropping the temperature from 22C to 14C currently, but the weather is still quite continental and humid. I spent the evening outside in my gazebo watching TV.

Fair enough but keep in mind Delta's extremes records go back to the 1980's only.

Records at McGill go back to 1871. The all-time July low of 7.8C was recorded on July 31st, 1891.

1 station has 100+ years more data than the other one.

The temperature was about 39C with 100% humidity and a cloudless sky with the sun beating down relentlessly. It was so hot that they spelled off the Marine honour guard every 15 minutes because of fears of heat stroke. The situation was compounded by the reflectivity of all the marble on the monument.
I get what you are trying to say but a RH of 100% at 39C is unheard of anywhere on planet Earth. The highest dewpoint on Planet Earth is unofficially 35C. it was in Iran or somewhere in that area if I remember correctly.
Even a RH of 50% will be extremely humid at 39C since the dewpoint would then be 22C.

I know you guys are probably sick of hearing this but I would go absolutely mental in that climate. I know there is seasonal lag, hell we get that here too, but it is just so exaggerated there I would lose my mind. Even looking at when the lag is a benefit during the fall it's still not ideal weather, much warmer here. Add in to that the lack of sun and constant wind. Dont know how you do it. The one positive is lack of extreme cold.

It's better today. There's a warmth in the fog. Lots of people out in full fall regalia but the active folks - joggers etc - are usually in tank tops and the like. I've finally got windows open again haha.

Yeah you have to love it to live here, TownGuy. It's not like moving to Guelph for an office job. There's nothing else nearby and the closest comparable city is a two-day drive away. You need to consciously love it here or be ignorant of elsewhere to last.

You can't miss what you've never had. What we've never had here is a great spring. After many years of misery this is just the norm.
