Looks like one more hot summery day before it cools down finally, the high should get to 27C, with a humidex of 35 and a low of 18C.

Yesterday hit 29.4 with a humidex of 37 and a low of 20.8C.

I always assumed southern Ontario was the main food production area in Canada, especially fruit and veggies

We probably get as much from BC as Ontario here, but for the rest of the country, I would assume Ontario is #1 for sure!

The food distribution question is a good one. Our fresh stuff comes from here in BC and California and Chile off the top of my head. The canned stuff is maybe from back east I haven't noticed actually.
We do have something in a can called Aylmer but I don't remember what's in the can haha!

Cold, mostly overcast and shit with little or no melting of all that snow which fell back on the day before Thanksgiving Day. Might as well be Sept/Oct after a nuclear war or a Tambora*-sized eruption - that's all I can say.

* The Indonesian volcano which caused the "Year Without A Summer" (1816). Although there were next to no record of weather conditions of that year from Fort Edmonton or anywhere in Western Canada that I could find, it's a safe bet that things likely weren't any better than in the Maritimes or the eastern/southern US at the time.

In Vancouver today it's about 16°C and sunny, wind 8 km/hr, and nothing but fine weather in the 7 day forecast, with temps ranging from 14°C to 17°C, and up to 19°C inland.

Stupid frontal boundary stalled right over the island... 50 km to out south and west, there was a dramatic difference. We had our high for the day at midnight with 22C.

It was 20C at 8AM but 14C at 9AM.

Meanwhile...

Saint-Anicet, QC: high of 24C
Ottawa: high of 26C
Burlington, VT: 28C

A certain forumer here likes to blame the bad weather in Manitoba on Alberta, well I will blame Quebec City... 100% their fault.

There was another round of 20C+ lows in Ontario today. Mildest was Burlington Lift Bridge, ON at 20.7C. I don't have time now to do the research as to what the latest 20C+ low is in Canada. Based on the stats from Detroit (because NWS has MUCH MUCH better stats for everything), it appears this might be the latest tropical lows ever recorded in Canada.

The warmspot was Borden, ON at 28.6C.

There was a trace of snow at YYT last night apparently. Never noticed anything in town.

So, a question - I've never seen this before. This morning I had to drive along Mundy Pond Road, on the north side of the pond:



That entire length, only beside the lake, the road was white with frost. Everywhere else there was nothing (or at least, nothing heavy enough to look white). Is that normal? What would cause that? It wasn't windy or anything.

The cool down has finally arrived! I enjoyed our warm October, but I’m ready for some good old fashioned Fall like weather now.
High today of 15C, with a low of 6C. Below normal temps forecast for the rest of the week! Normal high for today is 16.8C.

It could have been in the shade a little bit longer. Or maybe it's just the new pavement there. Also it's extremely windy out this morning?

Sunny and 3 degrees at 10am. Very brisk.

Is it? I had the window cracked but didn't notice. Is the wind blowing off the lake onto that road? That's what I was wondering, if that could be the cause.
