20C at 10 AM in Moncton today with no humidex to speak of.

The winds are currently out of the NW rather than the SW explaining this. It certainly is quite refreshing out there compared to the last several weeks.

24 feels like 33 at 11am. Showers should start this afternoon, and a break in the humidity should come tomorrow.

It is fucking hot.

Driving home from my parents' place in beautiful Mount Pearl (lol). Just beyond Mount Pearl you can see the water tower for the new suburb of Galway. That's technically in St. John's (Mount Pearl is completely surrounded). Most of St. John's is directly behind, downtown St. John's is also backwards, but toward the left side of the photo.



Why have a front lawn when you can have a front road?

33C in Winnipeg right now. We've had a long and hot summer here. I did a rudimentary count and as of April 1st, Winnipeg has experienced 67 days of 20C or above temperatures and 24 days above 30C. That's 91 days over 20C. Seems pretty hot to me.

No air conditioning in lots of places there , don't really need it , never hot very often or for long periods and cooler evenings ! My buddy phoned he's roasting in his house , first year he's thought of it , but he had heat on the first few days of July with mid teens highs ! Crazy summers there! Day 24 over 30 c here! Might hit 120 days or 4 months at 20 c this year , not bad for WINTERPEG !! Lol

Had to cut a long morning bike ride due to smoke and heat. Smoke is so bad here at 4pm the visibility is maybe 500-600 meters. You can smell and taste the smoke now.

Rockin August is tonight and tomorrow. 700 car may be here on show tonight snd tomorrow. The smoky sun my help with some grest photos, but will nit be dacing in this heat.

I am so happy we installed AC a few years ago.

I love my central air. When we bought the house I thought "oh, that's nice but I doubt we'll use it". Four years later and I doubt I'd ever own a place without it.

Just looked up the website for Rockin August. Looks like fun. I have to be downtown at 6am (yuck) for some system testing but I think after I'll take the ol' Volvo out to St. Albert, visit the in-laws and check out the show

It's so gross out right now. I can barely see buildings three blocks away.

It's 29°C, to 31°C inland, in Vancouver today, humidity 43%, wind 8 km/hr. This is the last day of the heat wave; some rain and cooler temps are forecast overnight and tomorrow.

And I'm stuck here in the top floor of a walkup with no AC. It's brutal. I think I might head to the bar again soon.

31.2C was the recorded high with a humidex of 35. So basically it feels like yesterday but with smoke. Lots of rancid smoke.

Calgary beat it's all time hottest temperature today hitting 36.4c.

Kinda surprised thats the all time high, I'd have thought Calgary would have hit at least 39c before, but apparently not.

Yikes, that's wild to here with how things are feeling in Edmonton and Calgary. Out in Toronto, we had about 25 C today, and hardly any humidity so it was comfortable. I went out in the morning, staying home for the rest of the day....took this in the morning:

Today was very nice, 27 and sunny with moderate humidity. Tonight will be the first time in a long time where there won't be a humidex reading overnight, it's very comfortable right now.

Yeah I was quite surprised that is an all-time high for Calgary also. New record for the day sure, but all-time? Seems pretty low.

21 degrees feels like 28 at 12:45 am. A little too warm for my tastes, might be a tough sleeping night (but it's definitely better than Alberta today)
