Shameless selfie but I think this will shock the rest of you. There's been about a week's worth of days where I didn't need some kind of jacket or hoodie or something. And today was the first day of the year where I was warm enough in a tank instead of a T.



So fucking happy. Finally. Summer!

Why is Windsor under a heat warning?

No heat warning here and we were WARMER than Windsor today, we are WARMER right now and even our forecast is slightly warmer.

Not up here, Alliston/Barrie area is dry as hell. Fire bans are in place for Muskoka with an EXTREME risk. This area is all HIGH risk for fires. Barely seen any accumulating rain in 6 weeks other than a few MM's here and there. Our grass has been brown since first week of July.

EC is kind of messed up with the heat warnings. Toronto is under one, they hit 29.3C today, Alliston has no heat warning and we hit 31.3C today feeling like 35C. My only guess is that our nights may be a tad cooler thus eliminating the warning criteria.

It meets the Windsor-Essex-Chatham-Kent criteria of 31 and lows over 21 for at least two days. Also called when humidex is 42 for two days.

Quebec has different criteria:

Issued when the humidex value is 40 or higher and when the temperature is 30°C or warmer, and both conditions persist for at least one hour.
Or
Issued when temperature is 40°C or warmer.


I think they might need to adjust the criteria, for SW Ont. We've been under a heat warning a lot of this summer and last summer, while other areas of southern Ontario haven't been (today, Lambton County is included). Nobody really cares or pays attention to these heat warnings.

I would assume it's like that here as well. I don't expect there's anyone out there who is grateful that EC pointed out it's hot as hell because otherwise they might have failed to notice...

Frost warning in the fall or spring, okay, that serves a purpose...
Extreme cold snap warning in winter, same thing (people might want to take precautions with water pipes)
Major wind event / tornado / tail of a hurricane, useful too (people will want to take precautions)

But... a heat warning? Wow, thanks for letting me know that we're in a heat wave, I had no idea! What would I do without you!

Gonna be hot, it's already 27 with humidex 36. Forecast lows of 24 and 25 tonight and tomorrow night. Looks like it won't be quite as humid as last weekend.

Yesterday was perfect, 28.8 with moderate humidity and a low of 20.3.

29C, sunny with a humidex of 34 in Moncton at 1 PM, going up to 31C later (maybe higher).

I just spent an hour outside doing pool maintenance, and I'm pretty hot and sticky.

19 to 21 and partly cloudy just after 9am in Victoria this morning. Nice. Forecast calls for a sunny high of ... 23.

Yesterday was sunny and warm - with some humidity. Local highs were 31 (Airport); 28 (UVic) & 27 (Langford GV).

Hot spots on the Island were Victoria (Airport) and Mill Bay @ 31.

Put last post in a spoiler BECAUSE I'M POSTING AGAIN! Literally my first summer, Saturday afternoon downtown socializing, people-watching. Doing some street shots with a telephoto lens because it's the only way I'm brave enough...

Thanks! I usually don't photograph that view because of the giant "CANADA". I'm petty and irrelevant, but I am.
