...A GLORIOUS CONCLUSION TO A SUNNY WARM SUMMER...

ALTHOUGH THE DAYS ARE GETTING SHORTER AND THE KIDS WILL BE BACK TO
SCHOOL SOON, MOTHER NATURE IS DELIVERING ONE FINAL CHAPTER TO THE
STORY OF THE SUMMER OF SUN AND WARMTH.

SOUTHERN ONTARIO HAS BEEN EXPERIENCING A RESPITE FROM THE HEAT AND
HUMIDITY OF JULY AND EARLY AUGUST. BUT THE HEAT IS FAR FROM OVER.
A PROLONGED PERIOD OF HOT AND DRY WEATHER IS IN THE MAKING. A VAST
DOME OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL BUILD OVER SOUTHERN ONTARIO ON THE WEEKEND
AND HOLD FOR SEVERAL DAYS INTO NEXT WEEK. TEMPERATURES WILL BE ON
THE UPSWING INTO THE UPPER TWENTIES FOR SATURDAY AND SUNDAY WITH
COMFORTABLE HUMIDITY LEVELS ALONG WITH CLOUD-FREE SKIES.

THE HEAT IS FORECAST TO BUILD NEXT WEEK WITH THE MERCURY REACHING THE
LOW THIRTIES IN MANY AREAS OF SOUTHERN ONTARIO. WHAT WILL MAKE THIS
HOT SPELL MORE TOLERABLE FOR MANY FOLKS ARE MODERATE HUMIDITY LEVELS.
HUMIDEX VALUES WILL GENERALLY HOVER IN THE MID THIRTIES BUT ARE
UNLIKELY TO EXCEED THE MORE OPPRESSIVE 40 MARK. ALSO, NIGHTTIME
MINIMUM TEMPERATURES WILL COOL OFF INTO THE TEENS IN MOST AREAS
ALLOWING SOME RELIEF FROM THE HEAT OF THE DAY.

THERE MAY ALSO BE A GRADUAL INCREASE IN SMOG LEVELS WITH TIME, AS IS
TYPICAL IN HOT WEATHER WHEN ABUNDANT SUN AND WARMTH ACTS TO BUILD-UP
POLLUTANTS OVER TIME IN THE ABSENCE OF CLEANSING RAIN OR CLOUD COVER.

METEOROLOGISTS LIKE TO CONVEY FORECASTS IN TERMS OF PROBABILITIES AND
CONFIDENCE LEVELS. QUITE OFTEN DIFFERING FORECAST GUIDANCE WILL
INDICATE A LEVEL OF UNCERTAINTY FOR A WEATHER EVENT. BUT
OCCASIONALLY, ALL WEATHER GUIDANCE WILL POINT TO A HIGH DEGREE OF
ACCURACY AND CONFIDENCE. THIS IS ONE OF THOSE TIMES, WHERE THERE IS
NO DISTURBANCE, FRONT OR EVEN A LOOMING HURRICANE TO INTRODUCE DOUBT.

THE HOT SPELL WILL LIKELY BREAK TOWARDS THE END OF NEXT WEEK -
PROBABLY AROUND THURSDAY - AS A COLD FRONT KNOCKS AT OUR DOOR.

LISTEN FOR FURTHER STATEMENTS. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
MAY ALSO BE FOUND BY CONSULTING THE LATEST PUBLIC FORECAST.
THE NEXT PUBLIC FORECAST WILL BE ISSUED BY 11 AM.

END/OSPC

I noticed it says a cold front near the end of the week, too early to know but anyone thinking it may bring some interesting weather or will it come and go without much too it???????? In desperation mode here !!!!

I started a thread yesterday about next weeks potential. GFS has been consistent for five days now with a possible round of thunderstorms with the cold front. I like the idea that we are going to bake in the sun for five days... then have a cold front. Classic!

Desperation mode it is!!!!

They should replace "hot and dry" weather with "boring" weather in the statement lol.....

I believe we already have had a big stretch of dry weather this Summer no? One stretch per summer please.....

I see this stretch as the storm season killer :( I need one more good storm before Winter......

2010 has been a boring weather year here inn S-ON (winter and summer) but everywhere else all these crazy floods, record heat waves, drought, fires, earthquakes..........
