Hi folks and welcome to another Weather Wednesday. This week, we are back to school and back to work but the weather doesn’t reflect it yet. This is not unusual but of course, that changes within a week or less.
This is the meteorological autumn and of course, this is when the weather has the most impact on us. This is the peak of the hurricane season and when the weather cools off and the Northwinds begin to blow the leaves off the trees.
Another thing that has happened is that this cooling off has also been slow at times and I can think of 2 examples of when the really chilly weather didn’t settle in until November. In 1994 it was a rather warm fall, with no sign of a snowflake until late November, dew to it not going below freezing or the hi temperatures not going below 10°C.
In 2007 it was a similar type of fall season but it was even warmer, with a hi of 32°C being reached on Canadian Thanksgiving Monday. After that the weather didn’t cooldown much until very late October and didn’t go below freezing until November. I know that because some friends of mine were still having barbecues even as late as around October 20 and this was in southern Ontario Canada. In fact, everything I mention here has happened where I live, in the GTA in Ontario Canada.
I don’t think this year will be as warm a fall but I also don’t think we will be in winter clothes by early November like last year. I will be monitoring both my Weather Radio and weather apps on my iPhone for the latest in weather, in and around where I live. I may even check up on other places, just to feed my curiosity on which place is the warmest or coldest on a single day.
Well, that’s about it for today. Talk to you on Simpsons Sunday.
