21C and sunny in Montreal today.
The low this morning was 5C which is enough to keep heat inside with closed windows. It's about the normal low for this time of the year.

I haven't put the heat on for 2 days now which is kind of sad because by now I'm used to put the heat only on cool rainy days.
And sorry Kamloops but you have to share the hotspot with Huntingdon today!

Nicest day of the year so far, and improving steadily. This is more like it!

Long term forecast is showing overnight lows all above zero for the next couple of weeks, so to me that's the real sign of spring.

Heat and smog in summer’s forecast

http://www.thespec.com/news/ontario/...mer-s-forecast

Last summer was “the summer of summers,” according to Environment Canada’s Dave Phillips. But while this year’s forecast looks promising, it might not live up to last year’s sunshine and smog-free days.

Phillips, senior climatologist at Environment Canada, offered a prediction that this June, July and August will be warmer than most summers – welcome news after this spring’s dreary weather.

This summer looks like it could have less than normal precipitation, meaning there could be more smog days, Phillips said.

Insane amount of rain and the rainfall warning has not been lifted...

Battling floods in southern Quebec


Quote:
With more rain in the forecast, it's a situation that's expected to get worse before it gets better.

Flood waters have been inundating homes in Quebec's Richelieu Valley this week. Warnings were issued across the region, and emergency officials are expecting water levels to rise.

“We're expecting anywhere from 30 to 60 mm of rain, or more, in the affected regions through Thursday,” says Gerald Cheng, a meteorologist at The Weather Network.

Already, more than 2,000 homes in the region have been affected by flooding in recent days. About 400 people have evacuated from the area.

“I've only lived here for five years, in the area of Saint Jean, and from neighbours that have been living here longer, they said this is the worst they've seen in over 20 years,” says Quebec resident Sean Moore. “This is pretty bad. It's kind of scary.”

With officials believing this week's rainfall could cause the Richelieu River to rise further, the streets of St-Jean-sur-Richelieu have been lined with sandbags. Some homes are swamped in three feet of water and a lot of people have resorted to boats and canoes to get around.

Actually Windsor was not too far from normal this April.

Average high = 13.4, this years April high = 12.8. Only 0.6 degrees below normal and in fact the average low was slightly above normal. Although this has been the coldest April in Windsor since 1997, the east has been having an abnormally warm spring trend for the past decade.

nothing compared to how below normal it has been in the west

Examples: Vancouver's average high was 2.7 degrees below normal for April (very significant to a climate that is far more moderate in temperature extremes / swings than those in the interior of North America), while Kamloop's high this April was 2.8 degrees below normal and Calgary's was a whopping 4.5 degrees below normal!

8C and raining.

It has now rained for more than 24 straight hours. We've received 151.8 mm of rain (not counting today) since April 1st!

Can't take this crap anymore.

On Sunday, the water level of Lake Champlain was at 31.3 metres, the highest it has been in the 150 years records have been kept, according to Pierre Corbin, a spokesperson for the Hydro-Météo, the agency that tracks water levels for the Quebec Department of Public Security and its civil security branch.

EDIT: At least the flowers have had more than enough moisture.

You know you're in Nova Scotia when ....

There is a newspaper article stating it has rained for 18 days straight and everybody is commenting on the recent warmth and sunshine.

And to answer the life-long question, yes, the grass is GREENER on the other side
