^Speak for yourself. After another lousy weekend of weather with highs of 2C and 3C (normal high 12C for those scoring at home) we get a day of 5C today and a 70km/h wind followed by a forecast for 5 to 10cm of snow tomorrow.

But, it's going to 17C on Saturday according to TheWeatherNetwork. Ummm...did they fail grade five science because you know it doesn't really get that warm immediately next to a lump of ice and there is so much snow I'd say 8C is the absolute maximum it could get to. We'll see who's closer. Me or them.

Saturday's Forecast High
Environment Canada: 12C
TheWeatherNetwork: 17C
HomeInMyShoes: 8C

Has The Weather Network ever been right about a forecast?

The calm before the storm.

Wind is so cold. Sun is so warm. Sweating to death in a vehicle, freezing to death on the hills.

The record high for Toronto today is 29.6. I can't even imagine what that feels like, lol.

A bit of spring people watching while J. and I ate a quick and dirty supper. Downtown was pretty dead.

An hour ago when there was considerably less snow on the ground than this current heavy snowfall.

Interesting the hotspot in BC right now is in Stewart on the north coast. Literally across the border from Alaska.

^Brutal. This time last year, it was in the low 20's and some trees in my area were starting to show leaves. Complete 180 this year.

Up to 4C and cloudy late this afternoon. We even saw the sun for about 2-3 min.

We were lucky, the temperatures climbed above freezing by 10AM so we had more rain than freezing rain. None of that white bullshit like Toronto.

It still is our latest episode of freezing rain on record. Also the longest continuation during the month of April.


The warmspot was Bella Bella, BC at 15.0C.

BTW-Minneapolis just had its biggest April snowfall (and their 12th all-time). They received 15.8 inches which translates to 40 cm. Previous April record was 34.5 cm on April 14, 1983.

Man, the east better get an amazing summer after all of the bullshit they've had to put up with this spring.

Shanghai from last week. It's just been a wonderful, warm summer.

I got in to Seoul a few days ago, and while the first day was wet and windy, it's been sun and in the high teens since then.

Another day of cold wind and hot sun. Its gorgeous downtown, bitter up in the suburbs. Hard to believe all that freezing rain finally arrives from the mainland overnight. Doesnt feel possible standing outside today.

Also kind of depressing how all these storms everywhere are funneled here. I dont understand how storms from Florida and Ontario end up over St. John's lol. You'd think the latter would end up over Nuuk or something. But they all just want to hit us

Forecast says not much snow today thankfully. 2-4cm is the revised forecast for this afternoon. Still cold though 1C right now and I hope it falls as snow and not freezing rain.

Forecast has been rewvised for Saturday...

Saturday's Forecast High
Environment Canada: 15C (12C original)
TheWeatherNetwork: 16C (17C original)
HomeInMyShoes: 8C (8C original)

I'm standing by my forecast. Until I see a day that actually reaches the forecast high from three days ago there is still too much snow reflection for their model to accurately predict the temperature.

So far this April the weather in most of southern Ontario and southern Quebec has been more typical of the averages for Labrador at this time of year.

No joke. I checked.

Parts of Antarctica at 4C are warmer than Eastern Canada as we speak, including Windsor (I checked just for the sake of it). South Pole is still at -53C though, phew.
