Probably our last day of hot weather for 2010 :unsure:

But, it certainly was lovely while it lasted :smile:


WEATHER SUMMARY FOR ALL OF SOUTHERN ONTARIO AND THE NATIONAL CAPITAL
REGION ISSUED BY ENVIRONMENT CANADA TORONTO AT
8:30 AM EDT SATURDAY 25 SEPTEMBER 2010.

..RECORDS TUMBLE AS EARLY AUTUMN HEAT GRACES SOUTHERN ONTARIO..
-------------------------------------------------------------
==WEATHER EVENT DISCUSSION==

AN INTENSE LOW PRESSURE AREA WHICH GAVE HEAVY RAINFALL TO NORTHERN
ONTARIO PROVIDED A REMINDER OF OUR SUMMER HEAT IN SOUTHERN ONTARIO.
NUMEROUS HIGH TEMPERATURE RECORDS FELL ACROSS THE REGION ON FRIDAY
WITH THE MERCURY SOARING INTO THE HIGH TWENTIES AND LOW THIRTIES
ACCOMPANIED BY HOWLING, HOT WINDS. IT'S A ONE-DAY WONDER, HOWEVER,
AS A COLD FRONT SWEPT THE HEAT INTO THE RECORD BOOKS LAST NIGHT,
MAKING WAY FOR A RATHER COOL WEEKEND.

BELOW IS A LIST OF THE TEMPERATURE RECORDS BROKEN ON FRIDAY. SINCE
THE LAST UPDATE, BUTTONVILLE'S MAXIMUM TEMPERATURE WAS ADJUSTED
UPWARDS, AND LONDON AND VINELAND WERE ADDED WITH TIED VALUES.

Yes it was a nice summer in terms of sun shine and warm tempratures. Actually it was a summer well above average. Hopefully with La Nina starting up soon we will have a snowy winter to test out my new Nikon D3100 DSLR :)

Nice summer for heat. Too darn humid here in Niagara and not enough storms though. :(
