Today is looking to be the official end of summer in the BC interior.

The first true cool and moist period of the season seems to be starting tomorrow.

Been a good run through.

Ya we had 40 days above 30C which isn't even a record for us let alone Osoyoos or Lytton.
Highest high 38.3C.

Yeah, Osoyoos had 52 days over 30 and 12 of those over 35.

Woken up by the wind. Looks like edge of Teddy has arrived, I assume?

Drove to a friend’s place for a pre-work coffee. It’s raining SO hard.

+9C and raining in Moncton at 8AM. It's been raining for the last 20 hours. Sustained winds right now are 39 km/hr, gusting to 56. Peak wind gusts overnight were 68 km/hr.

Overall, not too bad, and in terms of severity, we usually get 3-4 nor'easters every year worse than this. The main issue of course is that the trees are still in leaf, increasing the risk of tree damage and power outages, but this has not been a major issue so far here.

Of course, things are likely worse in Nova Scotia.

The rest of the forecast period looks really nice in Moncton BTW, temperatures between 20-25C all week, with warm overnight lows and mostly sunny.

This happens every year we have an early frost. The temperature dips down to barely below freezing for a couple of hours one night in late September, and then we have not even the slightest risk of frost for another entire month. Pisses me off...……..

18 degrees, rain, drizzle, and some wind thanks to Teddy, though the West Coast will feel most of the impact. For us this weather isn't anything atypical at all.

Looks like private weather stations in the HRM have recorded just above 100 mm of rain. Pretty impressive.

A cool morning, with a temp of only 4C, but expected to warm up to 21 later.

Temps still ranging from 16-21 for the next 7 days with lows in the mid to high single digits with a few even only falling to 10. Another great fall week ahead.

Highs of 24C to 27C for the next 4 days....then dropping to 22C by Sunday and next week is when fall arrives (again).

Temps drop to 13-19C across Southern ON from Monday onwards with gusty NW winds, scattered showers, and less sunshine.

That's a nice fall forecast.

The EC data so far for Teddy in NS is pretty underwhelming. Wind gusts up to 60 km/h or so with gusts up to 70 predicted for YHZ later in the day. I checked Malay Falls since it might be more exposed and closer to landfall but of course there's no wind data there.

Sydney A is about the same as YHZ.

Wind tends to be what causes most of the damage.

NS Power is reporting some medium sized outages in Cape Breton but almost nothing in the rest of NS. That is usually the main problem after a hurricane or tropical storm.

With this track winds were never going to be a problem. There was a lot of social media hype regarding the storm and "winds" as predicted by max wind gusts of the storm, but most of those people don't understand how post-tropical storms work and that those gusts would predominantly be offshore. More sensationalist weather reporting (looking at you, Weather Network) doesn't help either.

Winds of 60-70 can take branches off of trees which still have their leaves, but won't cause large amounts of destruction nor are they anything atypical for the region. Looks like parts of Nova Scotia got a decent amount of rain (100+ mm), and while that's quite a bit thankfully it was over a lengthy period of time as to prevent too much flash flooding.

Sadly when storms are hyped up and end up being nothing extraordinary it tends to de-sensitize people to the point where they may not be adequately prepared for a storm which could actually be destructive. Beginning reporting on how the storm will impact a region when its 7 days out and spinning in the tropics as a category 4 hurricane only leads to unnecessary fear and panic.

Looks like the centre of low pressure which was associated with Teddy came ashore near Ecum Secum. My prediction was pretty good, as that's only 33 km southwest of my prediction of Holland Harbour.

Fall arrived with a bang in Vancouver - first Pacific storm of the season. It's dark and pouring rain.

22C today = yet another September patio day.

Perhaps the most that I have ever had.

This is turning out to be a bad September in Vancouver. 10 days or so of smoke and then we slid into a mix of overcast skies and rain.

Our summer only started in earnest a bit after Canada Day weekend. Our high on July 3 was 14.6. It also seemed like we had a lot of above normal and below normal days with comparatively few in the middle. The cooler than normal days during the smoke were actually nice while the warm and humid smoke days were terrible.

I hope something changes with forestry around the Pacific Northwest or it's going to suck in the coming years, since we'll either have cloudy/rainy weather or smoke. I wonder if there will be more acceptance of controlled burns or other mitigation strategies in the future other than just trying to put out as many fires as possible. If not for smoke in the past few years our summers would have been much nicer.
