Another 30C+ day across Southern Ontario, feeling more like 37-39C with humidity. Im astonished at how hot it feels. Im not used to this type of heat in late September, I personally have never seen it happen in my lifetime, not at this level of intensity. We've now had 5 consecutive 30C days in my area (Alliston/CFB Borden station) ON, which has never occurred before in late September. We are coming off an incredible 15 day stretch of 25C+ weather, the best consistency we've had all year.

Tomorrow looks to be the last above normal day for a bit, before temps fall into the mid to upper teens Thursday into the weekend.

Long range models show Eastern Canada warming up again by the middle of next week and into Thanksgiving weekend, not as hot as what we've just experienced but highs running 5 to 10C above normal.

If dogberries are a sign of a hard winter, we're fucked. I've never seen this many, even on the smallest trees. From this evening's walk home from work along the Rennie's River Trail:









And in another sign of hell to come, our very own mini-Trump COULD win the mayoral race in St. John's. Let's hope not.

Edit: Turnout in St. John's (city only of course, so 108ishK of our CMA) was 56.6%. No results yet. This is endless.

Apparently, they only counted my ballot:



Results just in are:

Mayor: Not-Trump Danny Breen (53.19%), slaughtered Andy Wells the Trump-like candidate.
Deputy Mayor: Heritage protectionist (yay!) and activisit Sheilagh O'Leary (84.21%)
Ward 2 (my ward): Socialist and pragmatic SJW Hope Jamieson (38.81%) - she beat incumbent Jon Galgay (34.72%)
At Large: Maggie Burton, who probably lurks here given her flawless urban cred (15.78%), SSP's own incumbent Dave Lane (12.98%), generic incumbent Sandy Hickman (10.92%), and passionate urbanist (or, at least, VERY big on in-fill and mixed use neighbourhoods) Debbie Hanlon (10.43%).

It is a BEAUTIFUL NIGHT in St. John's.

Winter is Coming.

29C with a humidex of 37C. We had some thin clouds that prevented us from hitting 30C in a otherwise sunny day. But it's our 14th consecutive day above 25C so I will let it go.

Another BEAUTIFUL clear morning with a low of 21C (humidex of 28).

3rd straight day with a record high as today is another record breaking one (despite the surprise thin clouds). Officially 29.6C today easily beating the old record of 26.5C of 2007.

Some god damn impressive temperatures this morning:
Downtown Montreal with a low of 23C (humidex 30)
Long Point, Ontario with a low of 24C (humidex 31)

Just imagine if the night weren't more than 12 hours long... we might be approaching equatorial nights if this was July or August.

Windsor with the 6th consecutive 30C+ today!!!

The warmspot was Fredericton at 33.6C. Too bad it's already cooled off to 15C there (much drier).

I had to shut the window and turn the heat on in my bedroom when I woke up at 4 from shivering lol. Sunny today but still crisp. I was hoping that heat on the mainland would drift over by now but I suspect that's over for us.

And Saudi Arabia is going to let women drive. Today is a happy political day lol

Supposed to get to 27C today in Moncton, but still overcast and only 18C at noontime, so I can't see this happening.

Fall-like weather returns tomorrow.

Tropical Cyclone statements issued for southeast Avalon. Presumably will expand to include St. John's. Not a hurricane, just lots of rain from their remnants.

Maria will be tracking through Canadian waters there has to be a statement from the Canadian Hurricane Centre, however Maria is expected to stay very far from land (SE NL will be the closest to the storm) and will have no direct impact on us. However a cold front passing through tomorrow could potentially draw moisture up from Maria, increasing rainfall amounts. Let us hope it isn't too much rain.

Toronto celebrated their 5th consecutive day over 30.0C today, the best run so far this year. Taking their total to 14 days over 30.0C this summer.

Temps look to cool however by tomorrow into Saturday. Another warmup on cue for next week with highs back in the mid to upper 20s.

Another sunny warm day in Victoria. Sitting at 25 where I live right now ... slightly humid. Same again forecast for tomorrow, then changing back to seasonal temps.

I don't buy it...my parents have two mountain ash trees (what you call dogberries) and they always have tons of berries. The last two winters were very mild with little snow.

As a matter of fact, I planted some Vista Red last year. They are supposed to be annuals in most of North America. The bed they were planted in is fairly sheltered and they bloomed again this year.
