Hot, cloudy and windy. Feels like the Gulf (of mexico)Coast outside. I love it.

Another gorgeous day in town...



Another shitty one down south (Branch, St. Mary's Bay)...





It cleared off between St. Bride's and Placentia, right in Angel's Cove. Was kind of cool .

Vancouver had some smoke haze for a couple of days, but it wasn't severe, and there was no forest fire smoke smell. It seems to be gone now. We have rain forecast for Thursday, it seems like there hasn't been any noticeable rain since June 15th. Today was 26°C with some cloud.

27C with a humidex of 35 and mainly sunny! We had the most ridiculous downpour this evening. It was absolutely POURING outside for a good 30 minutes with solid gusts. I talked to people located all across the island, and not a single drop there.

The low this morning was 20C (humidex of 26).

Congrats to Windsor for that 42 humidex. It's kind of a low record if this is the year's highest reading.

Another gross swampy hot day here again today, with a high in the low 30s and humidex readings in the low 40s. I love our usual warm and humid summer weather, but this extreme humidity is only bearable if you are either at the beach or in a pool!

17.4C with 90% humidity and a dewpoint of 15.8C. It's actually not comfortable. Sweating profusely just from walking down to Star of the Sea.

According to climate-charts.com, here is the hottest places in Canada:

1 Lytton BC (hottest in BC as well obviously)
10 Windsor Ont (hottest in Ontario)
12 Castlegar BC
13 Vancouver
25 Toronto
28 Lethbridge Ab (hottest in Alberta)
41 St. Hubert (hottest in Quebec)
49 Montreal

65 Calgary
70 Moose Jaw Sk (hottest in Saskatchewan)
93 Morden MB (hottest in Manitoba)
94 St. John's Nfld

They also have stats for Canada's driest and wettest if anyone is interested. And info available for the entire rest of the world for that matter.

Currently 29.4C in Moncton with a humidex of 32. Not oppressively humid out there but uncomfortable enough that I am inside my air conditioned house rather than doing some necessary yard work.

Things have dried up again, and any relief from the showers we had a couple of days ago has evaporated (pun intended).

I'm surprised we haven't had a major forest fire in the province this year.......

I used the climate.com charts to come up with a ranking of Canadian CMAs for average yearly high temperature. They don't list all CMAs, but I found data on 26 of them.

(5) Abbotsford BC - 14.4C
(9) Victoria BC - 13.9C
(10) Windsor ON - 13.8C
(11) Kelowna BC - 13.8C
(13) Vancouver BC - 13.5C
(22) Toronto ON - 12.6C
(26) London ON - 12.3C
(27) Hamilton ON - 12.2C
(35) Peterborough ON - 11.7C
(43) Kingston ON - 11.1C
(49) Montreal QC - 10.9C
(55) Ottawa ON - 10.7C
(60) Halifax NS - 10.6C
(64) Moncton NB - 10.3C
(65) Calgary AB - 10.3C
(68) Sherbrooke QC - 10.2C
(75) Saint John NB - 9.8C
(84) Quebec City QC - 9.5C
(91) Regina SK - 9.0C
(99) Edmonton AB - 8.7C
(101) St. John's NL - 8.6C
(103) Sudbury ON - 8.6C
(107) Thunder Bay ON - 8.5C
(115) Winnipeg MB - 8.1C
(118) Saskatoon SK - 8.0C
(135) Saguenay QC - 7.3C

I see the ranking for a few of the communities on the other list are different. This may be because I used different reporting stations. For example, I used the downtown Shearwater station for Halifax rather than the Halifax International Airport.

The gold standard data is the climate normal data for 1981-2010 from Environment Canada.

Depending on which weather station you pick you can get anything from an average high of 10 (Sambro) to 11.4 degrees (Halifax Citadel) in the Halifax area. That would shift the place in your rankings around by about 30 spots! What that really says is that most Canadian cities are very close together, and the ranking is often dominated by choice of weather station.

The year-round average also hides the difference in how continental some places are compared to others. Dublin and Minneapolis both have an average high of around 13, but Dublin ranges from +8 to +19 while Minneapolis goes from around -5 to +29. The averages are the same but many individual months vary by 8-10 degrees or more. Likewise Victoria and Windsor are tied but Victoria winters and summers are both much milder. Windsor is a city with a fairly continental climate that just happens to be far south enough that it's not really cold in the winter.

27C with a humidex of 36 and a mix of sun and clouds until this afternoon where it clouded up and started raining and thundering. Then after about an hour of wet weather, it suddenly cleared and in a matter of 15 minutes there was no cloud to be found on the horizon.

Low of 19C this morning.

The rain simply won't let up, this is incredible!!! 30 out of the last 36 days have seen precipitation.

I am starting to wonder whether this is freakier than the March 2012 heat wave. Our frequency of precipitation for this time of the year is 40%, you do the math how probable this is.

Today has brought some much needed precipitation to parts of the South Coast and the interior from about Kamloops north.

Today was the first measurable precipitation in Vancouver in 29 days, and it may rain again tomorrow night on the coast before returning to sunshine again. Victoria got just a trace.

Today was also the first rain in Ashcroft in 39 days (it rained once in all of June, 2.2 mm).

It is 14C today and overcast, but it actually feels like it, which is a nice break from the heat. Yesterday was so bad I actually swam in a friend's pool in full view of neighbours, even though I'm still quite soft and voluptuous from being cooped up during our endless winterspring. I would've kept my shirt on if the Onion hadn't done that article years ago with the headline, "Fat kid avoids ridicule of peers by wearing shirt in pool"

Yesterday evening it got up to 24C officially, with a humidex of 29C.



Anyhow... it's a fine day for chocolate. The sea salt is sprinkled before the chocolate is layered on top so it's visible on the bottom of the bar - makes the taste when eating it ssssooo good. Just make sure to put the salt side on the roof of your mouth.
