Already so hot and tropical feeling out there, only 11am, and the temperature is 31C, with a humidex reading of 40, and a dew point of 22.5C! It’ll be interesting to see how hot and humid it gets as the day progresses!
Aw crud, I already feel it. I'll try to stay in shade then....damn.

Pretty much the only place in Southern Ontario that doesn't have a heat warning or heat related special weather statement. Still pretty damn hot though with a forecasted high ot 30C (25C near the lake) and a humidex of 38C. Reason we wont reach warning criteria is the lake breeze off of this bad boy...

Weather is absolute perfection this afternoon in Moncton!



Rhododendron (in bloom) and Japanese maple overhanging the goldfish pond in my backyard.

I spent a good portion of the afternoon dozing in my gazebo listening to the relaxing babble of the water from the waterfall.

Thanks. Here's a few more of the backyard I just took this afternoon.







This too could be yours for less than the cost of a dilapidated bungalow in a run down part of metropolitan Vancouver.

Included: 5000 sq ft two storey brick house on a double lot with a three car garage, 4/5 bedrooms. 3.5 bathrooms and a finished basement. The house is on a private cul de sac in a prestigious neighbourhood and is within a three block walk of a well regarded primary school.

I'm serious - the falling down bungalow in Vancouver is probably worth 200k more than my house is. You could furnish the place and have enough left over for a fund for the property taxes for the next 15 years or so.........

Two of your pools length-wise is probably the dimensions/shape of my house.

Man, nice backyard! I feel like I'd break that slide if I went down it about twenty times.....I'd fit fine in the slide, except for half body haha.

I went out on that bike ride....good grief, it's not that pleasant once you're out and about, even on a bike. Just waiting for those intersections' lights can be a hassle with the heat.

Amazing backyard MonctonRad!!!

28C and a humidex of 33 and a mix of sun and clouds! It wasn't quick the clear blue sky day so the temperature remained below the 30C mark.
Low this morning was 17C. Despite missing the big heat in Windsor, I can't complain.

The warmspot was Windsor, ON at 35.1C. This is the new highest temperature for 2018. Windsor and Sarnia had a humidex reading of 43 today, the highest in 2018 in Canada.

Please correct me if I am wrong but I think Windsor has the new warmest temperature at 35.6 degrees, not 35.1. Pretty darn hot.

As a side note EC says that the Ashcroft weather station hasn’t been reporting for the last 3 days, yet all my other apps are still reporting current conditions from Ashcroft. Sometimes EC can be frustrating.

That fog can stay downtown too. If it's gonna be 7 degrees below average then it better as well just be sunny.

Currently only 13C with rain in Moncton. It's supposed to get up to 20C later today with thundershowers.

Pretty big thunderstorm here right now. That's what happens when it's 25C at 7:30 am and it was 28C at 11 pm the night before.

My backyard looks very similar except the trees aren't as tall but OTOH they're denser together so you can't really see the neighbours - even though we have neighbours fairly close on either side. You can swim naked in our pool during the daytime without worry.
