The fan runs continuously during the day with the two solar panel unit and the white plastic remains cool to the touch even on hot days. I initially had the unit with one solar panel, but quickly returned it because the fan stopped briefly late in the day when the sun was low in the sky, and you could see a pattern where the temp would rise by about 2C on sunny days. This gave Accurite a bad reputation, but I'm satisfied with the updated hardware and my temperature averages are almost identical to the Chatham airport.
Thanks flar, I'll probably get a unit near the end of the summer

Sun and cloud and 22 (humidex 30: dew point 21 RH 94%) at 10:30. Should be a warm and humid day out there.

Currently a thunderstorm in Moncton and only 18C. It will be unsettled most of the day, with an expected high of 21C. This is unfortunate. There is a Luke Bryan concert on Magnetic Hill today, and they're expecting 20,000 people to show up. Sounds like a recipe for mud to me.........

Low humidity with cool westerly breezes the past couple days. Still getting warm and sunny in the afternoons, with highs 26-28 the last few days. Today is looking about the same. It's been nice to turn the AC off.

One year ago today Calgary had its hottest day in recorded history (37C). Today we will barely make it to 14C. Feels like more like October than mid to early August.

High 26

It is so fucking hot. Bad idea to run.

Signal Hill on the centre horizon...



Bowring and Victoria Parks...



http://www.ucs.mun.ca/~melbaker/mmonroe.htm



Riverhead...



And the rain is now POURING! I got home just in time!

EDIT: Holy shit. I can hardly hear myself think from the sound of the rain.

Major thunderstorm in Moncton with lots of lightning, heavy rain and some hail - enough that I moved my car into the garage just in case there was any hailstones big enough to inflict damage.........

There's another line of storms to our west, which should be here in about an hour........

No surprises about the thunderstorms in NB, or our heavy showers here. The airmass over Atlantic Canada is extremely unstable at the moment (not so bad in NS or southern/northern NL)

Usually when a storm rolls through you expect the humidity to drop out. The rain dropped the air temperature from 26 down to 23, but the humidity is holding. The dewpoint right now outside at the local weather station is 21.4 degrees.

Hardest rain I've ever seen in St. John's. Even opened a sinkhole on Prescott Street.

But arrived out to my cousin's place for a 40-person family BBQ in Portugal Cove-St. Philip's, like 10 minutes away, and scalding hot sun.

It was stormy most of the afternoon, with a progression of thunderclouds passing over Moncton. Torrential rain at times, and it hailed on at least three separate occasions at my house. Across the river in Riverview, there was apparently golfball sized hail. I'm pretty sure we experienced a downburst around my house. It suddenly got extremely windy for about 3-4 minutes and then it passed. No tornados as far as I know, but the storm clouds were towering, and their bases were pretty ragged.

Weather has cleared nicely in Moncton this evening. Considerably cooler out - only 14C at 9PM.

The thunderstorms delayed the Luke Bryan concert at Magnetic Hill today, but the show is now going on. This photo was from around 7PM.

Still 20 (feels like 27....dew point 19 RH 95%) at 11pm. It might be a warm night. The thundershowers earlier did nothing to break the heat or humidity.

A mix of sun and cloud today, quite cool with a high of only 24C , our coldest day since end of June.

Back to normal summer conditions tomorrow, sunny and 29C.

This cold spell has been awful. You barely get much warmth during the day, and then at night you have to close the windows. Feels like fall. Blech.

A South African I met here once told me that she could deal with Canadian winters; it was the summers she had trouble with. Having lived in a hot place before, I knew exactly what she meant. It's the inconsistency that gets you down, as you get some nice heat for a few days, but it never lasts. The heat and humidity always get washed out of the air eventually, leaving you with ostensibly "comfortable" days but very cold nights.

I had to wear a long-sleeved sweater over my kit on my bike ride tonight, it was only 13 degrees and very dry at 10 pm. The tips of my fingers were so uncomfortably cold that I could have used some winter gloves.

First World problems, as they say.

Actually, 24C is closer to Toronto's average daytime maximum of 26C for this time of year than 29C is, so 24C is technically a more "normal" temp for Toronto than 29C is.

20C today with a showers on and off (there was even a thunderstorm at some point). It didn't clear until about 3PM. Pathetic "summer" day! The official high made it above 20C (20.5C) so our consecutive days above that mark are now at 51.

Low of 15C this morning.

The warmspot was Ashcroft, BC at 32.1C.


EDIT:

The forecast in Regina, SK for tonight, August 11th.

Quote:
Tonight Clearing early this evening. Low plus 4 with risk of frost.
My uncle who lives in Houston right now laughed when I said it was warm on the specific day I talked to him (July)... he said: Warm? In Canada? He's been to Montreal several times in the summer before. Imagine if his impressions of Canadian weather were of the Prairies and not the warmest major city in the country (along with Toronto) in summer?

Rennie's River is roaring from all the rain yesterday. Usually you can't even hear it.



Walked back to Churchill Park to pick up my car.



And then some iced coffee Sunday morning relaxation with Severina and her friends on Duckworth Street.

Up and down, around and around
Polishing the white stones
With centuries of footsteps

And the people say Split is crazy!"

Sunny and 24 (humidex 29) at just after 11am. Going to be a beautiful day, and unlike yesterday it won't be ruined by pop-up thundershowers.
