Smile Toronto's first official heatwave in three years.

In Canada we call a heatwave 3 or more days with 32+ C (90+ F) highs.
I new we had some 90's F back in 2008, but it seems they didn't last long enough.

Heard something on the radio you all might find entertaining:
"...The overnight low for Toronto tonight will be mild, forecast to dip to 24 C (75 F)..."

I also heard that meteorologists believe we are setting records in how "mild" our lows have been, and
"...it's never kept from cooling off for so long (so many nights)..."

Tommorow's high is forecast at 33 C (92-93 F)
with a "humidex" of 43 C, so that probably means max dewpoints around 24 C (75 F)

AND

Climatologists believe there will be many more heatwaves to come.

Same here.

In Lamedelaide, this definition extends to 5 or more 35C days. They get more heatwaves than Melbourne

Excellent mate! I'm happy for you, enjoy it


Melbourne's weather authority gives similar style forecasts....in Jan this year it was

"An oppressive night with possible showers and thunderstorms, followed by a hot and humid cloudy day .... Low 32 / high 34C

More heatwaves to come? That's not something I want to hear.

Enjoy it CC!

I'm happy for you and Toronto CC, enjoy it and I really hope there's more heat waves on the way. You guys deserve it many times over.

What is with you people wishing for more heatwaves?

Just playin'...although for my own selfish reasons, I'd rather have some strong cold fronts sweep through and cool us off.

Lol I actually wouldn't mind a strong cold front to give us some strong t-storms and much needed rain. Then we stay in the 80's for a few days then turn the heat back up.

That 43C heat index is very nice, lets see if you can tan in that.

I look forward to seeing the latest map released by the U.S. Drought Monitor. Most lawns around here are brown now. Anywho, I'll stop hijacking CC's thread.

Tan? More like roast.

Right now in Toronto it's 75 F with a dewpoint value of 70 F and humidity at 83%...and it's midnight. Very Florida-like.

Forecasting a high in the low 90s today. Quite impressive!

Because no season's averages in Canada represent my ideal weather conditions.
I can't just live somewhere that suits most of the time.

I don't mind your input, however contractory.
It would be boring if only heat lovers posted on this thread.
I like to impress or confuse the heat-sensitive folk sometimes.

Yes, a lot of Deep South weather is familiar to me, just like our warmer weather.

Even more impressive for here is that it's been 90-94 F ever since Monday.

Default Comfy sleeping?

Last night I slept soundly with fleece PJ bottoms under a comforter
and two separate bedroom thermometers read 30.5 C/86.5 F before nodding off.
It was still 30 C/86 F in my room when I woke up.

I'm actually a bit impressed with myself,
the fact I didn't need to sleep on top of my covers at 86 F.
It was pretty easy, probably because my room has been so warm for so long.

Dunno the humidity % in my room,
but the dewpoint outside is 23 C/73 F and outside my room is air-conditioned,
so the dewpoint in my room is probably 16-20 C. (60-68 F)
One of my thermometers is a weather station and it says 58% RH, but I don't trust it.
