It's the last weekend for blueberries. This week they'll start turning soft and falling to the ground. Mom, her friends, J. And I joined the hundreds of others spreading out along the coast lol. Sunny, soft breeze. You need a light jacket if you sit to pick.

We got seven buckets.



Stopped at Holyrood (the very first town outside the St. John's CMA) on the way back.



And then back to civilization.







This guy was biking straight up the hill. I'm a relatively fit person - I wouldn't do that. I probably couldn't.

In Vancouver it was a day to be on the seawall, on the beach or out on the water. Or just sitting on a log and enjoying it while we can.

High was ~21, low ~11. Sunny, breezy, dry. The rest of the week looks similar.

4AM: Temperature of 23C, humidex of 31
12PM: 16C (after the cold front came through).

Nonetheless, 19C and sunny today. Had to unfortunately wear the long sleeves. Kind of laughable seeing the shirtless guy (and I won't even talk about the guy with the sleeveless shirt) in the picture above considering Vancouver had a high of 18C... only logical reason is that he was showing off.

Yup, I was down by English Bay most of the day and while it was beautiful weather there was definitely a bit of a chill. I was in t-shirt and shorts and was wishing I had my jeans and a wind breaker.

Yeah. If it's breezy this time of year, that bite from the Pacific will get you. I prefer to hang out a bit further up Sunset Ave at Sunset Beach. Less wind, and less tourists. It's mostly just locals hanging around.

Cold front went through in Moncton - definitely feels fallish today.

Currently only 17C at noontime, with low humidity and a definite chill in the air.

I would say the trees will be changing colour early this year. Some trees have colour tinged branches now, which is at least 10-14 days earlier than last year. We've had drought conditions in Moncton since late July, so I'm blaming this on that........

In Fredericton, it definitely feels like we've turned the corner into Fall.

Saturday was bright, sunny and hot and humid.

Sunday was overcast, windy with occasional heavy rain. The wind continued on into the night and really cooled everything down.

This morning, you can feel the air is significantly cooler (it was 8C this morning) and what moisture in the air feels more like fog/dampness than humidity. Basically a standard early fall morning. The highs are still going into the low-mid 20's, but there won't be many more hot days left in the year.

Beautiful Day on Saturday sunny and warm Great for a 100 km bike race. Sunday wet and cold, almost felt like it should snow. Ski hills are reporting measurable snowfall. Rest of this week looks to be warm and Sunny. low to mid 20s all week. Leaves are changing so a good time to do some country drives.

Highs in the low 20s all week long with bright sunshine according to Environment Canada. The Weather Network is showing highs dipping to around 16/17 degrees next week but still mostly sunny.

Totally depends on that person's temperature tolerance. I know people who start stripping down anytime it goes above 15C and sunny and would be perfectly comfortable dressed like that.

I was definitely wearing jeans and a long sleeve shirt yesterday, though. Not warm enough for me to consider shorts or t-shirts.

Sunset just now...

I think most Vancouverites have a deep appreciation for times when the sky is this clear and they make a point of trying to get out and about if they can. High was 19 C (felt like 22) and low was 10 C.

Love your pictures mcminsen, but please keep in mind that the "18" dregree high is YVR, almost always the coolest spot in metro Vancouver during a sunny day this time of the year.

Just to give an example from today, from official environment Canada weather stations only, here were the highs around Metro-Vancouver and the Fraser Valley:

Pitt Meadows: 24.6
Abbotsford: 25.7
Squamish: 27.0
White Rock (also seaside): 25.0 (although seaside, White Rock is more sheltered than YVR (as are many seaside spots in metro-Van) so it does not get as strong of an on shore breeze and more often gets an off shore breeze)
YVR: 18.9.....

YVR is often the far outlier during the summer so the majority of metro Vancouver is several degrees warmer than the airport. The airport with its super flat topography, being surrounded by water on 4 sides, and direct on shore breeze location during the summer almost always keeps the temperature coolish and super moderated.

And to go a bit father out, here was Vicotria today:

Airport: 24.0
University: 23.0
Gonzales: 22.2
Harbour: 17.4

Again, showing how most of the city is generally mild, but being right in the path of an onshore wind (Harbour) really keeps the temperature down. Sometimes one only has to walk a hundred meters or so away from the waterfront itself for the temperature to jump 3 or 4 degrees.

Toronto gets this too, especially in the spring, regarding the lake front, as do many places in the Maritimes.

Thanks! Could you please give me a link to where you got those temps from today for weather stations around Vancouver? I've tried to find archival info for temperatures for Coal Harbour, Burrard Inlet, downtown Vancouver etc but without success.

No problem.

I always use environment Canada, at 11pm it gives the high and low plus precipitation for any of its listed forecast locations:

http://weather.gc.ca/canada_e.html

Here is the BC section:

http://weather.gc.ca/forecast/canada/index_e.html?id=BC

And then for historical weather (daily, monthly data and averages), here is the "past weather" section of Environment Canada:

http://climate.weather.gc.ca/

Trust me, this site can get very addicting.

Okay, I think I found it.

https://weather.gc.ca/marine/weather...&stationID=WHC

So, the high yesterday (Mon. Sept.12 '16) at Vancouver Harbour was 20 C (felt like 21 with humidex) and the low was 11 C.

Oops, we posted at about the same time. Thanks again. Yes, I will probably spend some serious time on that website.
