30C! Maybe our last but didn't think we'd get another one.

Hot and hazy today in Vancouver. 28 C and not enough of a breeze. Looking forward to the cool down starting tomorrow. Current forecast is saying 90% probability of precipitation on Monday and Tuesday. We could use a bit of freshening up.

I'm always happy to open someone's eyes to Taiwan's beauty. It's an underrated travel destination for most of the world.

hipster duck hit it on the nose; much of Taiwan (two thirds to be exact) is rugged mountain and jungle terrain with little to no urban settlement. The second highest mountain peak in southeast Asia is in central Taiwan, and the east coast is a drive everyone must do. One of the most spectacular on the planet.

I don't want to hijack this thread too badly, but here a few more pictures of Taiwan's natural splendor.

Another waterfall my friends took me to back in May. This one is a bit hard to get to.

Ok, that was a bit overboard. I'm sorry. Let this be a lesson to never mention Taiwan around me lest you want to get a barrage of related photos.

The cold front went through last night. The humidity in Moncton is gone. It rained for all of ten minutes when the front passed. The drought continues......

22C today and sunny.

My understanding is that environment canada is so under-funded that most of its equipment is held together with not much more than shoestrings and bubble-gum.
he only reason the Windsor tornado was able to be (privately) detected ahead of time was because of US-based radars which caught it before it touched down in LaSalle (albeit barely) and Detroit TV stations jumped on it very quickly too (likely saved lives - I believe Detroit TV news gets higher ratings in Windsor than anything Canadian-based). I don't think EC uses those radars and their nearest source is near London which is too far away to be of great use there. No warning was issued until a few minutes after the second tornado in Windsor lifted...

EC (at least internally, even if not politically) seems more interested in climate change than daily weather...although it has been that way for over 40 years through multiple governments.

about 24c today in Vancouver, probably the last warm day as next week shows a cool down to the high teens.

'Twas a nice sunny day to be out and about in the Commercial Drive neighbourhood today in Vancouver. Highs were in the mid 20s. It clouded over in the evening. Things are getting pretty dry here. The rain in the forecast has been pushed back a couple of days to mid-week.

Warm again today with sun and clouds and possible storms later, highs around 29C with humidex readings around 36, pretty much the same as yesterday. Perfect late summer weather!

After a couple weeks of hot, sunny weather it looks like summer has officially come to a close in Vancouver, with mainly overcast, somewhat rainy, and below average temperatures in the forecast for the coming week or two.

I'm sure a lot of people are finding themselves disappointed at this time of the year, but I actually quite enjoy autumn so I look forward to the cooler, cloudier weather and colorful scenery

Ontario is going into a heat spell for the first couple weeks of September, the 4th to 10th period looks quite toasty with more 30C+ weather.

high today of 28C with a mix of sun and cloud, 30% chance of a shower later. Pure sun for the next 7 days beginning tomorrow.

A lovely one in the city but very chilly at higher elevations.

Sort of a miserable day in Calgary today. A nice warm 14 degrees...and the sky is full of grey clouds, which means another random Calgary thunderstorm...

We had a very muggy 24C dew point today with a temperature of 29C and a humidex reading of 38. Still very much summer here.

Toronto hit 31C today , the 35th day this year with 30C+ temps. Lots of sunshine today as well, felt like a classic summer day.

More sunshine on tap for tomorrow with highs in the upper 20s. Back up to 30C for Tuesday.

In Vancouver today it was sunny, cloudy, warm, cool, dry and wet… depending on where you were and when. I actually used my umbrella for about 10 minutes at one point. I think the temperature edged a little over 20. I was out and about all afternoon in a short sleeved shirt and shorts and was comfortable.

Monday/Tuesday might still be warmish but after that it's a mixed bag of cooler and wetter. A taste of things to come.

Sunny and warm today, high of 28C with low humidity. 50 days of 30C or higher (29.5C with rounding up) so far this year for Windsor/Riverside station.
