Re: July 2018 Currrent Conditions & Forecasts

So far this afternoon my temperature is exactly on par with yesterday. 32.8C One difference today is that the dew point is not really low like yesterday, so it feels a touch warmer. Nothing extreme, though. I find that my temperatures read a bit too high in the late morning early afternoon but then...

Re: July 2018 Currrent Conditions & Forecasts

Many places appear to be running a couple degrees warmer than yesterday at this time. I'm down 1.3C (offshore flow is weaker so far today), but I expect my high will still reach or exceed yesterday's value. If I place my temperature sensor (protected in a shield) in the garden roughly 4-6 feet abov...

Surface gradients have already turned negative through the Strait, KUIL-KBLI -0.3 mb, and cross Cascade gradients below a millibar and falling. Sandpoint profiler shows temperatures in the lower levels running 4 to 8 degr...

Re: July 2018 Currrent Conditions & Forecasts

Man I'm amazed how cool the mornings have been both yesterday and today... It's below 13 C yet we're reaching highs in the low to mid 30s. That's quite the diurnal variation for the Fraser Valley... It's amazing what low dew points will do. Low of 12.0C here yesterday (followed by a high of 33.9C) ...

Re: July 2018 Currrent Conditions & Forecasts

33.1C today at YXX... appears to be a new record, eclipsing the 32.1C from 1996. That was easy.

Re: July 2018 Currrent Conditions & Forecasts

Abbywx can u explain to Jr. that sheild and location are subject to a heat source. Yes, the shield is meant for solar radiation only. It won't protect the sensor from radiated (infrared) heat, such as from the roof or the side of the house. Ideally, it should be situated at least a few meters away ...

Re: July 2018 Currrent Conditions & Forecasts

Definitely toasty out there today. Thankfully very low humidity. My max was 33.9C, and it's still holding at 33.8C after 6 pm.

I'm annoyed with Wunderground. They changed their site and no longer offer the full METARS. As a result, won't know today's official highs until later this evening.

Re: July 2018 Currrent Conditions & Forecasts

So the sun gives off fake temps? :lol: Is it meteorologically scientific that the actual temp is the the reading away from the sun? Example say it's 0c in the shade then you move your thermometer to the sun and it reads 5c and everything is frozen which reading would you believe. Abbywx can probabl...
