We've just caused it to happen a heck of a lot faster.

Hugely faster and it is going to bite us.

Yes many places in the US have been hotter, but I bet that if we weren't still in a pandemic, we could go down to the ferry dock and watch passengers getting off the Seattle ferry wearing winter jackets! [emoticon]


Probably not this time, Seattle is forecast to hit 42C.

I was thinking that if the border closures were over it would be nice to head up to BC to escape the Seattle heat... until I saw that BC was in the same heatwave as us!

Yes, all of climate science agrees with you.

Hope you guys stay cool.

Here in Connecticut we've had a cooler than normal Spring.

We'll see how the summer shapes up!

We are at the beginning of a severe heatwave here in BC. The forecast high for Kamloops is 46C ,


thats not unusaly for Kamloops, it is if it gets that hot at the airport, but I am just east on the river vally and normaly I am 5 to 8 degrees hotter than the "Kamploops forcast". yesterday it was already 42(107.6 F) but because it isn't an airport temp its not real haha..
they are calling for 46C so I am expecting to tickel 50C (122F)here, in the last 9 years I believe the hottest I have seen is 47C for an actual tempature.

Edmonton AB record high since 1884 - 37C 99F on June 29, 1937. (oops guess a hot day in June isn't "unprecedented").

search wikipedia for "list of extreme temperatures in Canada"

Alberta record high 43.3C 110F Bassano Dam July 21, 1931

BC 44.4C 112F Lytton & Lilloet July 16 and 17, 1941

Manitoba 44.4C 112F Emerson July 11 and 12, 1936

Ontario 42.2C 108F 3 times July 20, 1919, July 13, 1936, July 11 and 12, 2017

Canada record high 45C 113F Yellow Grass, SK July 5, 1937

And remember -

If the high temp sets a "record" it is Climate Change ring the Alarms, virtue signal, pass laws, tax money...

If the temperature is a record low "you don't understand, that is weather which is not climate". Smarten up.

noteven,

Look at the yearly average temperatures. The hottest five years since records have been kept are 2015 to 2020.

The reflectivity of the Earth is 50% less than it was in 2005. Meanwhile, just like a frog in a pot of water that is being warmed, mankind does just about nothing to mitigate these trends.
