Why do they call it Indian summer?

The weather events it refers to are not nearly as hot. Summer in India? Mid to upper 40s even 50 BEFORE humidex! 'Indian summer' during the fall here? low 30s at best if it happens in September and not even that warm once in October.

I say we change it to "Kenyan summer" At least it is similar!
Don't believe me? Take a look!

Too bad the public outdoor pools are all closed for the year now. September I did more indoor swimming than I did for the entire summer that we had. What an amazing Indian Summer. Smiling Face With Sunglasses
Heard on the radio yesterday that the public pools are reopened just for this weekend .

Nice and hot haha?
Nope it's not haha!

Sorry to be the bear of bad news. Or I should pin the blame on the GFS model!

I was walking into Dundas Square today in my Jamaica flag shirt and someone hollered to me Ta Bom!
lol I think they mistaken the country. That's not Brazil.

We really need some rain here. I've seen so many fire trucks lately. I hate this heat because I have to walk under little to no shade for half my commute. Plus I love the cold. :/

Don't go that way then. Go Mi way.

Really hating this weather right now. It's always extreme one side or the other. Have not been handling the humidity too well. Got some swelling and had a massive leg cramp last night.

omg feels like Davao here now...
Actually worse. They get like 31, 32, we are getting 33.

Has Toronto ever been like this in autumn before?
Meanwhile Sydney too is under 'unprecedented' heat and they are just getting out of their winter. Global warming I guess.

So now guess what? Models are now showing a total return to warmth. The cold spell earlier forecasted now looks brief, before we return to the warm yet again!

If the pattern holds as I am seeing now in the GFS model, expect a return to overall warm and even more muggy 20s next month, much like what this past work week was like.

There must be a lot of fires lately. The air has a stench of chardness. Smells like fires broke out around the city and its permeating the air.
