Turned into a real nice cool fall day in Victoria - partly cloudy with temps of 12 to 15 just after 1pm. Forecast high today is for 12 with a chance of showers. EC is calling our skies mostly cloudy, but I need sunglasses LOL.

Yesterday was nice too. Coolish highs of 12 to 15 in the sun.

It has brought to my attention that Sherbrooke airport actually froze for the first time on September 19th instead of September 29th. The list below reflects that oversight.

Checked out Glen Major today. It is northeast of Toronto. Colour seemed more advanced up there. Gorgeous conditions again.

Well, the first time there was any frost anywhere in the vicinity of the very greatest extent of the City of Sherbrooke was (by a hair) on September 29th; errors like that are the reason I don't bother taking that list seriously or even looking at it. (There was no frost to be seen anywhere on the 19th even at the highest elevations of the city.)

Well they're not the only source of errors in it (and I agree with the list being pointless)

18C and mainly sunny! It clouded up this evening and we had a quick shower.

The tomatoes are appreciating this great weather.


Low of 8C this morning.

The warmspot was Kuujjurapiq, QC at 20.6C. It must feel like a dream for them to by the warmest place in Canada in October.

Getting back to something more normal for Vancouver. Less sunny, less dry and less cold. There was some scattered precipitation on Saturday morning and then the afternoon was a mix of sun and light overcast. Very pleasant.

Saturday’s high at Vancouver Harbour was 13 C, the low was 7 C.

Melita has no snow, in fact they were combining west of there yesterday. The cut off seems to be just west of Deloraine. Anything east got hammered, but one saving grace is that they did not get the freezing rain prior to the snow that is causing the havoc in Portage, Winnipeg and the Interlake.

I think there is at least 25% of the harvest left in the field. They are praying for a heat wave.
