^ That is true, those flowers look similar to the flowers on the Lilac tree in my back yard. At least from far away.

My neighbour has a Rhododendron in their front yard that's about 7 feet tall, but it's kept trimmed to be only about 10 feet long, essentially the same length as the window it's in front of. It's one of the taller ones I've seen.

5 days after breaking the May all-time record high (33.1C), Quebec City just recorded its coldest June temperature ever with -1.3C this morning.

Yeah we have Dogwoods too, Cornus stolonifera. Beautiful pink flowers in spring, pretty red/green leaves and pink berries in summer, and beautiful red bark tear-round. Makes a nice bush.

Made it to 20 today, up from a forecast of 17. Most of the city escaped a random thunderstorm but the far NW got it. Otherwise sunny and beautiful. I got to spend it out in Mountainview County shutting down a nursery, such a beautiful way to spend a nice warm sunny day.

Tomorrow is calling for 20 again.

Some pics from Rondeau this evening. Great example of Carolinian forest.

A mighty tulip tree


This type of forest has a "super canopy" of tall trees like tulip, oak and beech rising above the rest of the forest. It's hard to capture on the camera how much taller some trees are than others.







The lower levels are thick with smaller trees, vines and shrubs















The forest floor is lush and diverse

It was the coldest June morning in more than 30 years (since June 3rd, 1986) in Montreal with an official low of 2.8C.

14C was the high at 1PM. It clouded up and even had drizzle (in June are you kidding me?). PATHETIC!

The warmspot was Emerson, MB at 33.8C.


Our May mean temperature was 13.4C which is exactly our monthly average mean. Without the historic warmth, we were potentially looking at a top 5 coldest May ever.

Maybe Metro can tell us what the warmest station in the country was in May.

Just about every May will start below normal though, and there might be a lot of months out there with some cold spells and some warm spells. This one does seem like it was more extreme than normal in the eastern half of the country but it's hard to quantify that (standard deviation? not a statistic that is computed much).

Halifax dockyard for May

Mean maximum: 14.6 (normal 13.2)
Mean minimum: 5.1 (normal 6.7)
Extreme maximum: 28.3
Extreme minimum: 1.1

I'd guess these extremes are outside of the typical range for the month. Last frost was April 23.

From the looks of it the warmest weather station was the town of Lillooet, BC in the Fraser Canyon.

High: 23.0
Low: 9.7
Mean: 16.3

Highest High: 28.8
Lowest Low: 2.4

Days over 20: 24



Second would be Ashcroft, BC.

High: 22.8
Low: 9.3
Mean: 16.0

Highest High: 27.7
Lowest Low: 2.7

Days over 20: 26


As for bigger cities in BC it would have been Kamloops but unfortunately as of this month that weather station decided to not report properly... So after that is Kelowna.

High: 20.3
Low: 8.2
Mean: 14.3

Highest High: 26.9
Lowest Low: 2.3

Days over 20: 18


So these numbers are very close to normal if not weeeeeee bit on the cool side (about 0.5 degrees or so)

The interesting thing to note is how stable the weather was. For example Ashcroft with 26 days over 20 but not a single day over 30.

Overall I would still say a decent May and to be expected.

The southern interior of BC on average had the warmest spots in Canada for May.

We are fluently binumeric!

As I pointed out in another thread, I measure my speed in km/hr but my fuel consumption in miles per gallon (imperial gallons at that, not those piddling US gallons). To make things even more confusing, I, like most Canadians, measure distance to other cities in terms of hours. ie - Halifax is 2.5 hours from Moncton (rather than 250 km).

Weather Stats St. John's, NL: May 2019

Overall an average month.

St. John's International Airport (Official Station)

Average high: 11.6 (0.5 degrees above average)
Average low: 1.6 (0.1 degrees below average)
Mean: 6.7 (0.3 degrees above average)

Highest high: 27.6 (May 29)
Lowest high: 2.5 (May 19)
Highest low: 19.0 (May 31)
Lowest low: -1.7 (May 16)

Total rainfall: 94.7 mm (3.2 mm below average)
Total snowfall: 1.3 cm (3.1 cm below average)
Highest humidex: 30.3 (May 29)


CBC University Avenue

Average high: 12.0 (1.6 degrees above average)
Average low: 2.7 (0.7 degrees above average)
Mean: 7.4 (1.2 degrees above average)

Highest high: 27.4 (May 29)
Lowest high: 3.0 (May 19)
Highest low: 16.3 (May 31)
Lowest low: -0.1 (May 20)

Highest humidex: 32 (May 29)

Historical averages for CBC weather station are a little whonky since there's such low data available. Station has only been online for about 3 years now. Hopefully with a few more years there will be a good base of data where historical averages will be meaningful.

The downtown station I have been monitoring for the past 5+ years is back online, but there appears to be a problem with their temperature sensor. It's currently reading too high and is giving noisy data at times when it shouldn't be (at night). So I am not adding any data from that station back to its historical data until they fix the god damn sensor again.

As for today, cloudy, rain showers, fog, and a cool 10 degrees at just before 1PM. Should be back to average temperatures tomorrow for the rest of the week, but it'll likely still be wet.

Very dependent on your age and other factors. Most Canadians under about the age of 60 think in degrees celsius, cm of snow, speed in km/h, distance in km's but most under that age consider their height in inches, weight in lbs and food and drink is a mixture of both. Gas is rarely converted back to $/gallon in people's heads.

House and apartments are almost always quoted in ft2 instead of m2 except on architects drawings. Likely still quoted in ft2 as it sounds bigger.

People who live near the US border are more influenced by the imperial system..a system I have little use for
