^^ Looking forward to that. It'll be nice to get out of the house/ office and spend some time outside

Also looking forward to the break so some of the equipment can back off at the building. It's performed well so far but for the past few days we've been pushing things pretty hard

In the GTA, it's currently freezing rain/snow blowing in sideways in fierce gusts, temperature falling from +10 to -10 quickly.

I think this is the Ontario equivalent of -40 on the prairies or a month of rain in Vancouver in November; it's basically the worst weather pattern that our region can inflict on people.

In comparison, I actually "enjoyed" those -20 days a week ago. I just did indoor activities near windows.

Been writing Energy Audit reports the last few days, had to get out and go for a walk to clear my head. -30 does help.

I assume a bunch of places in Eastern Canada broke records these couple days? Weather Office Canada has updated the record high (1889-2017) for the Sherbrooke weather station for this day (year of record high now says "2017") , but I didn't bother checking other stations yet.

Actually, I just checked Moncton: the record high for today is still listed as Jan 12th 1980, but the reading for Jan 12th 2017 even as of 7 pm right now still indicates a much higher temp than that record.

10C and raining today... not only we broke the Jan 12 record but we also had our warmest January day since 2008.

Snow has greatly diminished but the historic cold this month has created damage that will take more time to disappear. There is a place close to the roof where the ice accumulates (I guess it formed more than a month ago when we had our last above freezing temperature before the brutal cold) but the ice is still frozen solid. I have never seen anything like that. Usually ice in Montreal goes away in less than 24 hours during a thaw (or is soft enough to be moved with a shovel).

Down in extreme Southern Quebec toward the border, temperatures where 15C. Very little snow left.





The Canadian warmspot was Cheticamp, NS at 17.1C. It has already broken the record (on Jan 13) with a current temperature of 17.3C. That is the new high for 2018.

Friday in downtown Vancouver (and from what I saw on the East Side) was the same as Thursday. Same conditions, same temps.

Neat temperature map! It would be useful when trying to explain to an American that it can be warmer in the Canadian Maritimes than along the gulf coast. They would never believe you.

Currently +16C and heavy rain in Moncton at 8 AM

The wind is insane again here in Halifax bringing these warm temperatures. The temperature contrast across North America has moved from latitudinally to
longitudinally.

Thats some pretty amazingly mild weather. Records must be smashed. Always fun watching major weather anomalies.

Gonna be double digits in Vancouver this weekend too. This has been a breath of fresh air compared to last year. Hopefully we can go through the whole winter without significant snowfall again and last year was the anomaly.

Records across the Maritimes are smashing as we speak.

Cold air "straight from the north" in the continental heartland can show up up there occasionally coming from land, but won't go really further, the peninsula is too moderated by water for it to happen.

Pretty sharp line between blue NB and orange NS!

(Although most of the population of NB is also in orange temps...)

12 degrees in St. John's right now, beating the record high of 11 degrees set in 1981. Gander too I believe beat their record high.

Currently 14 degrees at the neighborhood weather station, but my lord is it windy out there.
