Looks like a direct hurricane hit on Halifax...? Exciting times.

There is a construction site that got hit about 1 year ago by Hurricane Dorian. Its crane fell over. They have since put up a new crane. I bet the developer is a bit nervous about this.

They have also had the pandemic to deal with so maybe they wish they'd just waited a year to start.

Weird but I wish I could experience some natural disasters. Or at least witness it. God I would love to see a tornado.

Anyways the overnight temps here have finally fallen back into the teens. I could sleep last night with the window open and enjoy a cup of coffee this morning! Feels so great!
I have no problem with well constructed and thought through buildings. It's the sea of garbage single family and multi-unit wood frame residential.

Yeah, the track has shifted westward again. I would say landfall will likely be around Musquodoboit Harbour, maybe 60 km from downtown Halifax. The track could still shift further yet..........

16C and sunny!

Low of 3C this morning. The last 3-4 mornings have been outrageous. All within 2-3 degrees of the record low. I've had it with the cold already. I would literally prefer clouds but milder nights over this BS. It's September FFS.

The warmspot was Emerson, MB at 25.5C.

Track has shifted eastward again. If I were to take a completely uneducated guess on where the storm will come ashore, I'll say between Holland Harbour and Port Bickerton. Tracks can be difficult to predict when the driving factor of the storm direction is the trough over the Maritimes as any delay or premature interaction can drag the storm hundreds of kilometers off the predicted track. But with only about 24 hours to go there isn't much more uncertainty left.

Looks like the mid-latitude wind shear has done a number on Teddy (wind shear at higher latitudes will weaken hurricanes even if they are over warm waters) but the interaction with the trough during post-tropical transition will help Teddy keep its intensity for the short term. Looks like it's already begun extra-tropical transition though, wind fields are expanding and shifting to the east.

Once it moves over the colder waters near Nova Scotia the strength will greatly diminish, but its looking like tropical storm strength winds will be widespread. With the current track, Cape Breton will bear the brunt of the winds, and it's quite likely that we could see some hurricane force wind gusts in the Highlands since the topography there often increases wind speed by quite a bit. I wouldn't be surprised if the top wind gust from the storm were to be somewhere in the Highlands and near 140.

Well, it's fucking fall. And so begins the long descent to winter. This year, I'm not in the best mental state from the jump so this is going to be a rough winter lol

I'm going to guess between Yarmouth and Channel-Port aux Basques.

They're forecasting 23C and mostly sunny here in Toronto. 26C by Saturday. Maybe I'll head to the beach.

Summer does seem to be back for one last kick at the can... Hopefully it sticks around a bit longer than normal.

after a moist early summer. we have now had about 6 weeks with no appreciative rain. pretty dry out there. Had smoke from the states up to Sunday but also lots of dust from the farmers harvesting. Day temps are slightly above average but the evenings do get quite cool. Had a long drive on the prairies tomorrow and it should be quite nice.

It has just started raining in Moncton - the last deep breath before the plunge.........

We will probably receive 75-100 mm in Moncton over the next 36 hours. Peak wind gusts will be about 70 km/hr, which isn't so bad, but since all the trees are still in full leaf, there will likely be power outages.

Along the Atlantic coast of NS, wave height may be at 8 metres, and the storm will last through two high tide cycles, so between this and storm surge, there could be significant coastal flooding.

Quite a few temperature records were broken this weekend. Here are some from my area:

Code:
Rondeau		
2020-09-19	Minimum Temperature	         7.3 °C
2020-09-19	Minimum High Temperature	16.5 °C
2020-09-11	Minimum High Temperature	17.7 °C
		
Chatham		
2020-09-19	Minimum Temperature	        -0.2 °C
2020-09-18	Minimum High Temperature	16.6 °C
		
Leamington		
2020-09-20	Minimum Temperature	         5.5 °C
2020-09-19	Minimum Temperature	         1.6 °C
2020-09-19	Minimum High Temperature	16.5 °C
2020-09-18	Minimum Temperature	         4.5 °C
2020-09-18	Minimum High Temperature	16.5 °C
2020-09-11	Minimum High Temperature	19.4 °C
Both Chatham and Leamington set monthly record lows. This is the first time a freezing temperature has been recorded in September for Chatham.

Also notable that minimum high temperature records were set. This area is generally above 20 and in summer mode until the beginning of October. Those high temps around 16-17 are very unusual.
