Deadmonton? Real original there, bud.

I won't deny it's been a wetter and shittier summer than usual—so NOT a typical Alberta summer.

In non-troll related weather:
23 today and more storms; 24, 25, 27 for the rest of the week. All but one of those days has rain in the forecast during the day or at night.

I don't ever remember a summer this wet. It's been almost two months since I last watered my lawn, trees and plants and they are all doing incredibly well. Good for the water bill and plants, I guess.

Its cyclical, last few years we have heard Ontario complain about cool summers. Before that it was Manitoba and Sask being to wet and cool. Alberta was in a mild drought. This year south and central Alberta is getting slightly above average rain fall. but the north is still considered dry. Hell even BC is getting a wetter summer in the interior. Good thing is less fires. I prefer temps in the mid 20s. Having lived and competed in Ontario I found that to hot.

Yah its been wet but temp wise it feels warmer here. Hell it hasn't been this lush here in a long while. Plus the lakes in the area are looking full. they had been drying up the last few years. Haven't had to water my lawn this year.

Heard a EC commentator mention June was 150% more rain but was still not in the top ten rainy Junes.

I do remember when I was growing up in Edmonton (Late 60s) there was one summer that it rained so much we were getting mud slides on Groat Rd.( a drive down a raving into the river valley).

Yet again another perfect (one might say dope ) Alberta summer day. Already 20 degrees at 10am, heading up to 27 today. Currently mainly sunny, with a low chance of thunderstorms later on.

This week's looking more or less normal. Which is perfectly fine with me. I just wish we wouldn't get so many monsoon-like rainstorms.

It's supposed to get up to 23 today, although there's a possibility of showers or thunderstorms later in the day. It's currently about 18-19°C right now (EC's weather info on Edmonton's Blatchford Field is stuck at 9:00 am - and yes, I did just refresh my browser!)

While this summer's been wetter than normal for sure, I don't mind the cooler temps at times - no worrying about sweat-soaked bedding at night unlike in Ontario! Hell, I haven't even used my tower fan by my computer desk so far! All I have to do is just open one or both my sliding doors if I get too warm.

I'm leaving for Edmonton on Thursday. As long as it's sunny and over 20, I'll be happy.

Today is nice so far, currently 26 humidex 34 and mostly sunny. Feels even a bit warmer than the last couple days because there is no lake breeze.

Yesterday was 29.6 with humidex over 30 overnight and over 40 in the afternoon. Low was 20.4C.

What summers are you referring to that people in Ontario would have been complaining? They are always hot and humid like clock work. We have had some shitty springs mind you.

And again, because this is a pet-peeve of mine, even people who think summer is too hot here, we get those cooler, what you think is ideal temperatures, but at different times. When Alberta is dealing with their first frost advisories we will be getting your preferred weather here. Lower humidity, cool nights, and mid 20s temps. Summer will still be going on while Alberta descends into fall. September in Toronto is similar to July in Edmonton and warmer than August.

This summer has been the driest I remember in Southeastern Quebec (and northern NH; it is almost threatening to kill the white oaks I planted this spring - I'm not there all the time so they mostly have to take care of themselves).

I wouldn't be complaining about it personally, it's been great for the progress of our jobsite, but it's not ideal for flora.

You just have to go back a few years in this thread and look at the comments.

I loved the fall when I lived in TO, did not much like May24 through Sept 1st. But I grew up on the prairies. so the dryer summers are much more pleasant. TO is a lot further south so yah you should have a longer summer like season.

May of this year every on here was complaining how dry it was, then June happened.

2 years ago, Ontario had a quite cool summer (remember the wet Canada 150 celebrations?). The jet stream was right over the province, so it kept the weather much cooler and wetter than usual.

Last year was hot and dry - we had several notable forest fires in the province. I remember it smelling like campfire for a fair chunk of the summer.

This year is not as hot or dry, but it's still a warm summer.

27 feels like 34 (dew point 19 RH 59%) at 4pm. Gorgeous if not a little sticky.

Yes, 2017 was a shitty summer. I remember being frustrated at how cool it was. I would be freezing in my office and go out to walk around old Gatineau to warm up, but there was a always a chilly breeze and very little humidity. However, that fall ended up being long and warm.

Yes the summer of 2017 was pretty bad. Lake Ontario was at then record levels and the beaches in Prince Edward County were a disaster. Too small, the sand was brown and ugly, the shores were too eroded. It was also like that back in May this year but I don't know if things have improved since then. The difference is, we've recovered from our crappy spring this year and the weather turned out to be pretty nice.

Out of curiosity I searched through some old posts of mine in this thread from the summer of 2017.

Boy, I sure do complain a lot.

The "cool, chilly, pretty bad" summer of 2017 Toronto's avg high Jun-Sep were 25, 27, 25, 24. For comparison, because presumably no one was complaining in Edmonton that year, the avg highs were 22, 25, 24, 18. Let's not even get into the lows.

I guess it is all a matter of what you're used to but Toronto in a shitty year is still summer. Edmonton this year has been more like spring or fall.

Everything south of a line from Sarnia to Toronto is always hot, even in a bad year. It's less consistent in areas north.

I don't care what the numbers say. Looking at those posts from 2017 reminded me of how miserable I was. It really didn't feel like summer.
