Yep I see that

I remember late September 2017 we had 5 consecutive days over 30.0C here (Sep 22nd= 30.4C, Sep 23rd=32.1C, Sep 24th=34.0C, Sep 25th= 32.8C, Sep 26th= 33.2C)

Sep 2017 was our hottest September in record keeping history although with the crappy summer we had that year I think it was well deserved

19 as of 2 pm, above the forecast of 18. It's sunny skies too so might break the 20 degree mark again.

Hit 23 yesterday, was the perfect day to hit up the zoo. It's been a fun week showing my Montreal buds around town.

It's a bit early, but looks like we could see highs in the mid 20s next week, which is very good for late September/Early October.

All in all, the next 7 days looks like great weather. Dry and mild.

It's 17 and 70% humidity on my deck this evening (9 pm) in Halifax. I think it was about 22 in the afternoon.

I am sitting outside in a t-shirt and shorts drinking a caesar and watching for raccoons. I wish I had a red panda like you do!

Funny we had both a frost warning and a tropical storm warning on the same day just a couple days ago. (I didn't get frost. Don't normally see it at my house until November.)

There are olive species that can grows in environments as cold as a Zone 3a.

But for edible olives, you're probably gonna need a species you can plant in a container and overwinter indoors.

I can't imagine eating the olives straight off a tree anyway - they would be extremely bitter and astringent. They need to be treated to be palatable.

I think that is later in the Fall, when it's already been cold, but then there is a warm snap. Like November. I remember one year having drinks with friends in t-shirts on the deck in Christmas eve.

Of course green Christmases are almost the norm in Halifax these days. I think we have a 25% chance of a white Christmas.

I used to have the screenshot saved to my computer but I accidentally delete it. This awful quality image was all I could find.


The date is December 24th, 2015

Yeah, if anything, Toronto and Southern Ontario summers are getting hotter and more humid. This summer was pretty much consistently hot and humid, nothing like Halifax and it’s mild summer climate.

Halifax last few summers have been hot as balls.

Friends in Toronto told me their last couple of summers and particularly this summer were not nearly as hot as usual. Perhaps they misreported.

One Christmas day, I can't remember if it was 2003, 2004, or 2005, we ate Xmas dinner on the back deck. I believe the high were I was living (South coast Newfoundland) that day was around 16 degrees. If only they were all that nice.

If anything, I would not trust the average Joe when it comes to describing the weather. A handful of cool days here and there often suffice to qualify an entire season as “crappy”. This claim is even more surprising considering there was barely any cool days this summer (except the last couple weeks) and even the one before.

Same here. First August day below 15C and every skipper is saying, “Sure it’s winter now!”, “Summer’s over after Regatta!” Etc.

Heck people were saying "Summer's over" because Regatta Day had passed despite it being 28 degrees for that entire post-Regatta week.

This summer was most certainly not cooler than normal. Probably one of the hotter ones on record. July was essentially 30 degrees and sunny for the entire month. the *average* high for the month of July in downtown Toronto was 30.3°.

I believe I saw somewhere that Hamilton broke the record this year for the most days with the humidex above 30.

Southern Ontario was just as sticky and hot as always.
