I am bearing witness to your suffering. I regularly peruse the 14 day forecasts for various cities and I just shake my head every time I see the forecast temperatures for St. John's as compared to your seasonal average. Nobody deserves summer more than you guys.

Hey, Thursday looks pretty good in St. John's. Might get up to 19C.

It's been rough. Our weather is like Toronto sports teams - so close to great with fantastic moments, but brutally disappointing.

I've never found TWN 14-day predictions to be accurate. They always seem dreadfully low, even during the summer months. I'm used to looking at them in the middle of July, seeing a bunch of 15-16 degree high predictions, only for the week to come and be basking in 25 degree weather.

Currently sunny and 10 degrees at just after 9am. Should get up to 17 today, which is ever so slightly above average. When the winds die down this afternoon though there is a chance for sea breezes to kick in, which would likely keep temperatures a little cooler in St. John's, while places like Mount Pearl and Paradise won't be affected.

15C in Moncton at 8AM, going up to 24C this afternoon and continued sunshine. Clouding over this evening with rain overnight, back to 23C and sun tomorrow.

The weather in Moncton has reached it's "Camelot" phase...........

15 to 16 and sunny at 7am in Victoria. Forecast calls for a high of 25, clear with an overnight low of 14.

Yesterday was very nice with highs of 22 all around in the warm sun.

Warm spot on Vancouver Island yesterday was Port Alberni @ 25C.

University Avenue temperature at 1:34PM: 16 (wind direction: W)
University Avenue temperature at 2:02PM: 8 (wind direction: ENE)

EDIT: nevermind lmao I'm a dumb bum

EDIT2: maybe I'm not. If you're referring to historic average high, St. John's is 15.1.

I took those from TWN monthly historical averages projected for June 11 2020. It varies a bit depending on the date for SJs, from 13 at the beginning of June to 18 at the end of June.

When in doubt, go to the historical and official source:

Has been an awesome past couple days in Calgary. Yesterday hit 20 and we'll match that today at 20 degrees as of 4 pm. Yesterday's Game 5 party put on by the City of Calgary was a lot of fun. Ended up meeting a group of random people BBQing on St. Patrick's Island Park downtown after the game, they offered me n my bf some chicken, then we just ended up partying with them til like 1 am. Was the quintessential young Calgarian night

Some photos from yesterday's escapades...

I wasn't in doubt, you were.

TWN may be basing their averages on more recent data. Right now it's only 5C according to EC in St. John's, and 7C according to TWN, so I'm not really in too much doubt. It looks like EC has averaged out their data on a gradient.

It looks like TWN isn't excluding historical data, since their record low for today is dated in 1874. I can't find how long the EC historical averages include, but I suspect, based off of what I can find doing an almanac search, that they may be averaging from the period of time from the airport weather station opening from 1942 to present day (split among 2 official stations, one reporting from ~1942-2011, and the other from 2012-present). EC's record low for the day is reported to be from 1959, so likely what's going on there.

EC and TWN are both showing 8 for St. John's now. EC updates weather conditions and temperatures every hour on the hour, whereas TWN I believe updates conditions every 10 minutes (?).

It was good while it lasted. 19C with an increasing clearing trend after a rainy morning.

Low of 15C.

The warmspot was Lytton, BC at 34.9C. Up until 3PM, Kuujjuaq in extreme Northern Quebec was the warmest spot in Canada. They ended up the warmest place today outside BC with a temperature of 28.7C. Old record there was 25.0C from 1951.

A perfect summer day. What I really appreciated was the steady ocean breeze. Tuesday's high at Vancouver Harbour was 24 C (27 w/humidex), the low was 13 C.

Little chance of rain anytime soon and more areas of grass are going brown and dormant. Might not green up again until October.

Sweet mcm.
It is summer in Vancity when it's too sunny to keep the grass green.
