@11PM there hasn't been sufficient time for the air temperature to cool down yet as the sun just set. You only really feel a bit cool around 2AM+.

My window AC has been no cooler than a fan on most of these days. Way too hot to keep up. Should have replaced it. Really sad how people are dying from the heat in Quebec. They're feeling it much worse than us.


Still remember ways back hundreds if not thousands died in Europe from that heat wave we had.

Well... one nice day (today) followed by one bearable day tomorrow and then BAM! Back to the miserable stuff. Smiling Face With Horns

Yes, yes... I know: humidex in the mid-30s is less @#$%^&* oppressive than humidex in the mid-40s, but it's still not enjoyable! Face With Stuck-out Tongue And Tightly-closed Eyes

I beg to differ. Mid 30's in mid July is perfect imo. July is supposed to be hot and sticky. Just miserable enough to remind me how much I appreciate fall. The super dangerous mid 40's is way over the top for everyone. On the bright side, we are losing over a minute of daylight per day and will be losing close to 3 minutes a day in just a few weeks. Whilst I do not like it getting dark at 1630 in the winter, sunsets close to 2100 suck.

I think this summer is shaping up to be a hot one! And I started noticing what looks like el nino on my sea surface temperature maps. It appears to be right, el nino is likely on it's way back.
blahhh

What's that mean? May be more flooding this summer?

Summer effects of el nino are almost non-existent in much of Canada including southern Ontario. It is not until winter that el nino has an observable impact. And it just means warmer for much of Canada during that time.

It's called relocation. Vancouver might be your style.

Going off on a tangent here but if you were a homeless person or a vagabond, would t somewhere more temperate be better than potential fatal elwesthwr like we have here every year? I can't imagine how sleeping on subway grates is warm enough. To say nothing of the callous nature of Torontonians towards strangers much less a homeless person. People in general are shit anyway. Saw a video of Cristine the famous soccer player. He was in disguise and playing soccer in a Commons area but looked like a homeless person. No one paid much attention until he took the makeup off and the whole of Spain seemingly covered on him.

OK O/P all the regular weather outlets are saying that the heat for possibly the entire rest of the summer is over next week. How true is that statement? As an aside we are in desperate need for a good multiday slow soaking rain. So utterly filthy on the streets in Toronto.

With all doom and gloom and shootings and stabbings, can we rather get back to weather discussion?
Here here! Hopefully this storm ushers in drier air. Even with a dehumidifier and central air, my flat is still at times uncomfortable. Not to mention the boxes and packets of ruined cereal and snacks that went bad within a day or 2 of opening them.
