Haha, we won't be dropping below 0 until tomorrow!

It's a pyrrhic victory though. The real losers will be all us considering that not even a single city will have made it to November without a freeze.

There is an very small chance YYT could survive. -3 inland, but +1 in coastal regions. So I'd lean that the airport would most likely be closer to +1 than -3. However winds will be turning light this evening with eventual clearing of skies, and that's a recipe for cool temperatures. We've been very lucky so far, surviving many nights of forecasted 0 degree lows. I don't think we make it, but there is a slim chance.

The airport isn't super coastal nor super inland, so temperature will likely be somewhere in the middle of that range. Downtown will probably hover around 1, places like Goulds or the inland areas of the forecast region where no one live will probably make -3.

Pleasant, close to seasonal day. 10 and sunny. Cold for the next week, and then a few days of above average temps, hanging around the mid teens.

Ah OK. Here in Palermo it can happen but with very high temperatures, especially with the Scirocco wind (wind that comes from Libya) with temperatures above 40 '. Fortunately, it doesn't happen every year, about twice every decade. In reality, every year in summer there are always days when being outdoors is tiring; it happens when the temperatures are above 30 'and the humidity is very high. After all, it is much more bearable for me to resist temperatures of 40 'but with very low humidity, below 20%, than with temperatures of 30' and humidity above 60%. :inferno:

Victoria has only ‘out-frosted’ Montreal a total of six times. But, it gets weird since half of these have now occurred since 2017, while pursuing the 80-year climate record. When looking at the climate record, Montreal typically records the first freeze during the first couple of weeks of October -- more than fashionably late at this point.

It really has been weird.

There have been a couple other repeated oddities this year from last, and that has been Windsor officially freezing before many colder areas and Charlottetown having unusually early freezes.

While Windsor is undeniably warmer in winter. Montreal/Toronto/Windsor have a pretty similar length of the growing season. MTL doesn't really cool down until there is a snowcover in place.

8C and mainly cloudy this afternoon.

This morning was actually above freezing (1C). Last evening was colder. I also saw 2-3 snowflakes this morning.

The warmspot was Victoria, BC at 16.7C.

BTW-St John's has dipped below zero... Toronto wins the freeze list.

Currently +1C in Moncton at 8 AM, sunny but with a little ground fog, and going up to +6C later today.

The long range forecast has improved. There is no longer any risk of flurries in the forecast period, and temperatures may return to double digits next week.

Still calling for snow tonight and tomorrow in Halifax however.

Congrats Toronto, good work staying warm! St. John's overnight low was -2.0, and boy was it a chilly walk to the car this morning. My neighbourhood station froze for the first time too, with a low of -0.9.

Currently 2 degrees at just before 11am. Wont warm up too much today, high of around 5.

Here in Palermo (Sicily, Italy) a month October as often happens very sad but this month, which is normally one of the wettest of the year with more than 90mm in Palermo city, is particularly dry with about 35-40mm. The day just ended recorded a minimum temperature of around 18-19 ° centigrade and a maximum of around 22-23 °. Days of this October 2020 with very strong sun and few clouds. A photo I took yesterday in the historic center of Palermo

7C and mainly cloudy! Getting sick of those below average days. Feels more like November already.

Low of 6C this morning.

The warmspot was Nanaimo, BC at 16.9C.
