A dry 31C day in Winnipeg, with weekend temps looking to be much of the same.

It's a hot Thursday night in the city, and George Street is rockin'.

Livecam of the festival:



I'm going tomorrow with Ayreonaut - that gorgeous man from Calgary who lived here for five years, stole our hearts, left, and is now bringing his GF here to meet us.

Fittingly, one of the headliners this weekend is Derina Harvey, who is a Newfoundlander but spent a LOT of her life in Alberta. And in addition to Newfoundland Irish Folk music, she does some Maritime songs as well.

Video Link


Also, she's singing with The Punters. There is no other Newfoundland band, not even Great Big Sea, that takes NL and Irish folk music and makes it SO mainstream. They're just SO good at it. You'd think the songs didn't even have a Celtic connection, until you hear someone else's version. It's almost like they translate it into another language, only musically instead of lyrically.

^ Finally warm enough to stay up late.

Vancouver was seasonal today, about 23°C to 24°C, 27° farther inland, but with some heavy rain forecast overnight. Its's great to see some summer rainfall, but we have more hot high 20s (to low 30s inland) weather coming this week.

Good photo.

It got up to 27C today in Moncton, but we are now on the other side of the cold front, and there is very little humidity in the air. The peak humidex was 31.

Delightful weather actually.........

27C and sunny! It is very dry now that the cold front has passed. RH was 25% this afternoon. It is awfully dry with July finishing with 40.4 mm. However, 29.8 mm of that did fall in 1 day so the remaining 30 days so a grand total of 10.6 mm.

16C this morning. First temperature below 20C in 5 days.

The warmspot was Onefour, AB at 35.8C.

^ I was just thinking the other day of NL, as a place where you never need to plug your car in, but you may need to wear a parka to visit a lighthouse in July. You might also need to light a fire or crank up the heat at anytime in July or August, leave snow tires on until May, and people definitely have real winter coats.

Not "may need". Even if it's 30C in town, if you take a boat tour out around Cape Spear to see the whales, you will need a coat. It's never not cold.

Agreed on all, except the winter jacket. You're not picturing what I'm talking about. It was basically a portable igloo. I, a 37-year-old man, looked like and had the mobility of a toddler in a snowsuit. And I wore it from October to March. Everyone made fun of me but WTF could I do? I was fucking freezing.

I've probably never seen those types of coats, if you wear a parka in Vancouver you stand out from the crowd in normal winter weather. It's not uncommon to see people in shorts here in January.

Cloudy and 20 feels like 25 (dew point 18 RH 89%) at just after 9am. Should warm up to 25-26 today, but with a tad bit less humidity than the past few days.

Today is supposed to be up to 29 with 98% humidity. Short Sleeve an deck weather when I get home.

Drove about 400km north of Edmonton yesterday. Definitely notice the effects from all the rain. Ditches beside the highways all the way up were as full as they are in the spring with the snow melt. They looked like tiny rivers. Quite a few submerged fields but it is lush out there.

Was north of Lesser Slave Lake. Had to take a route to the west of the lake due to washouts and flooding from last weeks rain.

Could have been just as bad on that side as well. there were some reports of over 100mm of rain in the one storm. Passed one 100m long beaver dam that looked like a tidal wave hit it. all the trees and grasses above and below it were flattened and the low land below it and the highway have large piles of downed trees. Should have stopped for a photo.

My project site still had a lot of standing water. had water come in through the doors of the school, so a lot of drying fans are now in place.

Arrived in Edmonton last night, just in time for a humidex of 35 today. Will be cooler the next couple days, then I head to the mountains, weather also looking great.

Watching the weather here the last few weeks I was worried it would be cold and rainy.
