After another muggy, partly sunny day we snagged 10mm of rain at dinner hour! Really came down briefly too.
Now clearing skies again back to the west.
Long range looking great.

Beautiful Saturday out there...sunny and mid 20's. Nice breeze. Humidity in the low 30's, not too bad.

Next 3 days look to make a run at 30.
Tuesday evening showing signs of some rain with the cold front. I've picked up 30mm of rain so far in August IMBY.
The nearest EC station has received 50. Most of their extra came from one storm that just missed me to the NW last week.

I'm at 85mm of rain since the start of July. Not a drought, but definitely way below normal. Normal rainfall for July and August is 172mm.

Looks like more refreshing, sunny weather on tap starting Wednesday with highs around 22-25 through Friday.

How is everyone's sky looking for the eclipse later? Cloudy here this morning but the RDPS has 100% clear skys just in time for the eclipse here, only around a 30-40% eclipse here (we're due a 100% eclipse passing over most of Newfoundland in 2024!) but still a rare show so be nice to see clear skys.

You get a much bigger percentage of the eclipse down there, should be fun! We had a total eclipse back in the UK in 1999 though was ruined by cloudy skys.

Basically crystal blue skies for me! I'm supposed to get a ~86% eclipse.

Nice, must of been quite a difference at it's peak. Was fairly unnoticeable here being only around 32%, though could see shadows alter a bit and temps dropped by a degree or so, viewed it with the old pin hole trick projected onto white paper, guess I should of got some eclipse glasses, at least skys cleared to blue skys.

Talking of sun, we witnessed our last after 8pm sunset tonight, wont be till late April till we see another 8pm sunset.....winter is coming! cool.gif

Getting snow won't be a problem for you guys up there this winter. Speaking of daylight, we still got another week to go of 8pm sunsets, the last until mid-April sad.gif

As I'm typing this now it's totally dark at 9pm when the sun used to set! Here's to months of slogging through dreary, short days. Hopefully we can get a decent amount of snowfall and storms down here this winter to balance that out.

However, the lack of El Nino showing up with a possible La Nina redeveloping have already piqued my interest for snow so bring it on!

It was still quite sunny at its peak, but it was noticeably darker than what it was earlier in the morning.

Was at TO Island for the eclipse. Eerie how dark it started to get under a blue sky.

Was a great day on the Island. Temps stayed lower due to lake breeze. So nice. My backyard hit 32 and officially we hit 30.5 on the Cootes shore.

August has been a stunner of a month.
Looks like 3-5 days coming up 1-3 degrees below normal before we trend back to norms.
And continued lots of sun.
It's a muggy one again today. 25 feeling like 35.
But storms should roll through later.

We hit 30C in Alliston yesterday, the eclipse actually lost us some momentum, without it we woulda went even higher. At 1:30pm we were at 29.9C then by 3pm temps dropped to 27C before rebounding to 30.1C by 4pm. Overall a fantastic day though, one of the nicest 2 day stretches we've had this summer. Enough to take us to 10 days over 30C this summer which at the very least won't be a record low. (7 in 2009, and 9 in 2004). I only use official EC weather station data though to keep it fair. Our station is a tad cool at times especially with a NW breeze and its over 10KM north of the town. So technically the number would be a bit higher. But hey, its good enough.

The old farmers almanac has predicted a cold and snowy upcoming winter in St John's so must be true. laugh.gif I don't mind the fading daylight and the first couple of months of fall are pretty decent here, warmer than Spring here with not so much fog.

I guess a full solar eclipse is only going to really be the time you get the drastic effect, the sun still chucks out alot of brightness even with only 10-20% showing. The full one in 2024 here should be good if the weather cooperates (pretty good chance it wont being in early April!), though looks like will have to travel just West of the Avalon to see it as will be around 90% in St John's.
