I experienced a legitimate 50 degrees in Turkey once. Got in a crowded bus at Marmaris after crossing from Rhodes, and I actually thought I was going to pass out because of how weak the AC was. But then I was revived at the first rest stop in the hills where it was a comparatively alpine 25 degrees, the chill air cool and refreshing in a way I've never experienced before or since.

But yeah, life pretty much shuts down during the daytime when it's 50 degrees.

Many warm places get plenty of rain, including southern Ontario. Drought conditions are rare, since hot, humid weather brings thunderstorms.

I was in California a couple years ago at the height of the drought, and it was still pretty lush on the coastal side of the mountains. I think the high desert is always dry as a bone, but heading down into San Bernardino was quite a sight after driving through the desert. So lush and green.

Where are you, are you in the arctic or Northern SK? I didn't know anywhere in SK was getting frost every day.

I've been checking the weather most mornings lately to see if any risk of freezing since i have tomatoes i planted late and wanted to get as much as I can from them, so far so good.
I can't tell you what the actual temp was but I am based out of Stony Rapids SK and let me tell you my truck, house, and garden have all felt the sting of frost at least 7 times since I came up (2 week rotation). It is supposed to be 1 degree tonight. Had to pull the ice scraper out, which is always a depressing time of year. However I am soon going home where it will seem tropical in comparison.

I go more northerly (NWT) frequently, but don't spend much time there.

19C and sunny today.

Chilly low of 9C. We've consistently been a degree or 2 below average. It's time for the pattern to flip.

The warmspot was Collingwood, ON at 27.1C.

I prefer the heat to the cold, but there is a threshold above a certain temperature where things can get very unpleasant, very quickly. For everyone it’s different and for me it’s a humid 30 or a dry 35.

I would rather have a day of -20 than +40. I don’t think people realize what +40 is in the Canadian context; it is a record high temperature in the hottest parts of the country. In most Canadian cities a temperature of +40 would result in a few dozen deaths.
During most summers somewhere in the BC interior hits 40C but the death toll is zero.

Most Canadians don’t live in the interior of BC. Most Canadians live in Southern Ontario and Quebec where there are old prewar homes with tiny rooms and poor air circulation subdivided into cheap apartments and where summers are humid.

Looks like some potential first frosts in the Maritimes today.

Super cold morning there. Fredericton dipped below freezing, Charlettetown had an hourly reading of 0.1 and even the Halifax airport was down to 2.

Also looks like this September will end quite a bit below seasonal for BC.

Both Moncton and Freddy fell under the freeze list bus last night. Very premature IMHO. The temperature in Moncton on the weekend is supposed to be 27C.

I will try to update the list this evening.

We're now in late September, there are lots of places in Canada with an average first frost around now. The average first freeze for southern Ontario is around mid-October, which is coming right up.

I am not surprised to see cities added to the freeze list in the second half of September, which I think is normal. However I am a bit surprised that it happened in the Maritimes before other parts of Central Canada and the Prairies.

warm and sunny again for the next few days. Drove to the Sask/Alberta , Onion Lake, boarder area yesterday. Trees are changing colour and the Harvest is ramping up.

Beautiful day for a drive even with the early morning low level fog.

It’s 10 degrees as of 9 am, but there’s a definite nip in the air, and I don’t mean my tits. Feels almost too cold even for me to be wearing just a tshirt to school. Fall is falling.

There are some weather patterns there that occasionally cause really low overnight temperatures. I think one factor might be (sometimes very powerful, like Dorian) low pressure systems that track too far south/east and pull down dry, cold air from Quebec and Labrador. It's almost always perfectly clear when this happens.

This is also how you see -15 or below in the Maritimes in January. If the storm track is out in the Atlantic, Atlantic Canada gets cold weather. If it's hitting NB/Quebec, NS gets rain or warm clear conditions.

Shearwater (YAW) got down to 5.6 and Halifax Dockyard got down to 6.2, so not really a frost event in the city. The low tomorrow for YHZ is supposed to be +15.

The "perfect storm" for getting frost in NB is right around now and in most of NS it's in a couple weeks, when this cold weather pattern just brings things below 0.

Here's an article with some weather and construction crossover, a story on what the Queen's Marque developer in Halifax is doing to make the development more resistant to future storms: https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/nova-...mind-1.5279947

It has underground parking and some underground areas that are designed to be sealed off in the event of high water levels, plus electrical work that's resilient to flooding and generators on the roof.

One simple thing that happened a lot to the boardwalk is that the boards were nailed or screwed down and they got lifted up by waves that crashed upward. The Queen's Marque portion of wooden boardwalk is actually just built onto a concrete slab, and the whole area is 1 meter above the original elevation.

Wow that sounds horrible! Is that why so many people died last year??

15 to 17 and mostly cloudy in Victoria just before noon. Sun was shining earlier. Forecast calls for a high of 17 with mostly cloudy skies.

Yesterday turned out beautiful - sun came out and we had highs of 19 (Airport); 19 (UVic) and 20 (Langford). Nice late summer day
