This is certainly a cooler May. To put into perspective, in the past 50 years my hometown of Alliston, ON has recorded a 30C+ day in all but 5 of those years. So basically a 90% chance this area will hit 30C each May. This year may be one of those years where we don't reach that threshold. Hell, we may not even hit 25C forget about 30C. If that happens, it will be the first time in history.

Not expected to get better anytime soon. Temp anomalies...



They say it might warmup during the Victoria Day long weekend. Might..

The hotspot on Vancouver Island yesterday was Port Alberni @ 27c.
Wow 19 to 20 at 9am already in Victoria - and 21 in Tofino which is the BC hot spot at 9am....could be a HOT one today!

Nanaimo is at 20 as well - upper 20s for most of the inland areas of Vancouver Island today looks like.

Some strange anomalies on this map. Ottawa's forecast is looking better than New York City, and by that I mean many days will be quite a bit warmer.

Hmmm, not exactly. That is an anomaly map, it is just showing how far things are off average. NYC average would obviously be well above Ottawa's so they would still be warmer. Besides that Ottawa is smack in the middle of the green blob, which in this case, is colder than blue.

I guess I should update my post because it doesn't specify that it is an anomaly map.

My comment was not based on your map (I know it's an anomaly map and it shows almost all of Eastern Canada and the northern half of the Eastern Seaboard within that green blob). I actually checked the forecast for both cities and Ottawa will actually be warmer than NYC for a few days, which is unusual in May when NYC is generally already enjoying steady summer temperatures.

Throwback Thursday! Had high temps up to 23 that day in the Victoria region.

Warmest low was Victoria (Harbour) at 11.7C.

EDIT: The first 25C in the country last year, was on April 25th (Squamish at 27.8C)... It was a record breaking cold spring for Eastern Canada which turned into the most epic summer ever (especially for MTL)




...this dry/warm stretch since March is not boding well for forest fire risks tho...

Except here on the West Coast where we need it most. It hasn't rained in Vancouver for two weeks and it is only early May.

Now that's gotta be a first for Tofino.

I'm getting pretty worried about this summer's fire season. If we don't get some decent rain soon, BC is going to burn for months.

As of 4PM PST, Lytton (1 of the 2 stations) has hit 29.6C. New high this year in Canada.

16C with gradual increasing cloud cover. Raining this evening.

Pretty chilly this morning with a low of 3C.

The warmspot was Lytton, BC at 30.0C. Congrats to BC on the first 30C temperature this year in Canada. Still behind last year though (first 30C day was Apr 27 in 2018).

We had about 10cm of snow this morning in Timmins, ON. There are still lots of piles of snow everywhere from the Fall and Winter, especially in shaded areas and facing North. We've had snow on the ground since October.

There is still lots of snow in the bush and all of the lakes are still ice covered. But some sunny days with a high of 18 are in the forecast. It won't be a record for the the latest we've had snow or ice on the lakes but we haven't seen those things last this late in a long time.

I'm not sure 'Congrats' are in order. This keeps up we will have a very smoky summer - again - in BC. Also Washington and Oregon are forecasting high fire risks too - & again - if we don't get some rain/cooler temps.

At least you guys out east generally get thunderstorms / rain along with your heat.

I found the previous few days in Vancouver to be very comfortable at 17 or 18 C. Then boom, we jumped straight into summer with 24 C for Thursday's sunny high at Vancouver Harbour. The low was 10 C. Looks like more of the same through the weekend.

It's currently 21 C on my balcony at ~midnight.
