My wife and daughter were down in your area visiting family the past couple weeks and they said is was hot almost every day. I was so jealous. Just 8 hours away and such a difference.

Should be 27 with a humidex of 32 tomorrow afternoon at the airport (with winds only blowing at 20 km/h). I'm already ready to be a sweaty mess.

It's been clear all month till today. But today the smoke came in from the central interior. But things could clear back up just as quick when the wind changes direction so I wouldn't worry about it too much. You can see and smell smoke but no one is coughing or anything. I say keep your plans for now.

I was so pissed when it started pouring this morning. It seems like it would be another cloudy and dark day but thankfully, the sky cleared up and we had a third straight proper summer day. 26C with a humidex of 32. I can't believe I am celebrating an average summer day.

Low was a comfortable 19C.

Let's hope we keep warming up, we still have 1 day above 28C all of July (28.3C).

I was in Squamish this afternoon and you could really see the forest fire haze descending rapidly.

e.g. around 1pm

By 3pm:

Vancouver had been hit too by the time we got home.

Was great yesterday though

Sunny, no wind, and 22 feels like 26 at 10am. Forecast high of 28 feels like 32 for the airport today. We'll see if the weather station on the roof of my building makes it to 30

Temp was down to 9 last night, winds were up all evening. Had to wear arm and leg warmers on my ride last night. the wind cleared the smoke but teammates all said the smoke the last few days was effecting them.

Temps are rising this week. This was just issued by EC.

Alerts for: City of Edmonton - St. Albert - Sherwood Park
Statements
4:07 AM MDT Tuesday 18 July 2017

Special air quality statement in effect for:
• City of Edmonton - St. Albert - Sherwood Park
A smoke event is likely for central Alberta on Wednesday.

Forest fires in BC are generating huge amounts of smoke over western Canada. A cold front has flushed a lot of the smoke out of the province, but the smoke will once again cross the Rockies tonight and Wednesday.

Due to the smoke, the AQHI will likely reach 10, or high risk, in parts of Central Alberta on Wednesday. There is some uncertainty as to where the thickest smoke will set up, but current indications are that the corridor of thickest smoke and poorest air quality will be between Hinton, Red Deer, and Edmonton.

With the Slavelake and Fort Mac fires the last few years, added the NWT fires YEG has had some pretty smoky days. I remember last year having ash on my car.

Looked at the Sunshine village Web cams. It appears there are fire crews setting up sprinklers around the village. The fire near Mouth Athabasca is moving in that direction.

What a day. Swampy junk hot in the city...





Cooler with wispy fog banks on the Southern Shore...



And all the way down in Saint Vincent's, where I went to see the whales (they practically beach themselves there, they feed so close to the beach), it was foggy and, according to my car, 13C.

With all due respect, this is all I could think of while reading this advice:
