Looks like Osoyoos might...at least according to climate normals.

It has an avg high of 31.5C for July, and 31.1C for August.

Lytton has an avg high of 27.8C for July, and 28.4C for August.


Seems like Osoyoos would be the only place in Canada that would have an avg high in the 30's...

Today looks lovely in comparison, as its once again around the same cool temperature and sunny. Tonight is 17C, so I'll go for a 25-30 km walk from 7 pm and make it last into the night...screw it.
A 25-30 km walk?

Ok thanks cheers.
Always wondered about Grand Forks BC. Its geographically and heat wise between Warfield (Trail) and Osoyoos.

Looks like the curse continues, YYC Airport only made a high of 29.3 falling short of 30 again. We will have one more chance at it tomorrow before much cooler weather arrives.

So looks like temps will cool down to the mid 20s tomorrow for the BC interior.

Talking to my parents and my Mom seems pretty happy about that.

She has never liked the heat.

They live in Nelson and 17 of the last 21 days have reached 30 and above with 4 days reaching above 35.

Today was around 33 there.

Yup it was 35 here today. But into the 20s for a while now.

I wonder what the wind and rain were like.

I think my rough East Coast classification would be:

Somewhat windy - 30-50 km/h
Actual wind storm - 80 km/h
Hurricane/tropical storm level - 100 km/h+

The large rain storms tend to be 80-100 mm+ while 30-50 mm can just be an unremarkable rainy day.

While Vancouver gets a lot of rain, and has a reputation for being rainy, it's not a stormy city, and tends to get a lot of days with moderate amounts of precipitation rather than big storms. The worst wind storms on both coasts tend to be around the fall (November apparently being the prime time for unsettled windy days in Vancouver).

Very chilly today. But refreshing. The stickiness is gone from
the air.

Much more “normal” week on the cooler side here after all the rain we got over the weekend. 25 today, 26 tomorrow, and 26 for the day after. This weather feels downright cold compared to a July haha. I’m not complaining though, this is perfect weather to be outside in.

Cloudy and 20 degrees (humidex 26) at 9:30am. Sun will break through this morning, a high of around 25-26. Pretty breezy though, winds could be gusting up to 60 along parts of the coast today.

I guess we were too far west to get any real effects from Isaias. It was a grey day with rain on and off (some of the rain was periodically heavy) but nothing major.

It was good thing as I was out in the pool earlier this AM and noticed that I hadn't taken any furniture away from where it might get blown around, and still had my parasols wide open as well. Had we gotten decent winds, I might have lost some stuff or sustained a bit of damage.

Heating up here over the coming two weeks.... according to The Weather Network starting tomorrow every single day over the next two weeks will be between 26C and 31C . Humidity levels in the 30's every day. Some days creeping up into the 36-39C range. I will take it!

Many people have been enjoying the cooler weather, but I'm looking forward to more heat. Starting this weekend we are looking at a long stretch of highs 27-29 with moderate humidity and lows 21-23, which is my idea of perfect summer weather.

Yes, and so you learn to bear it during the rainy season without too much effect on your daily life, you can still walk to work, etc.

Thunder and lightning are once-a-year occurrences, if that. Downpours feel odd.
