I agree with you in terms of the rain as I too think summers out east have far too much rain and judging by your stats, this summer has had a lot more than usual with rain almost every day!

Also..I know how to speak french so don't worry as I understand the webpage. :)

Ok, donc je n'ai pas besoin de faire d'efforts pour écrire en anglais ! :lol:

Oui, il pleut environ 2 jours sur 3 depuis le début de l'été, et le soleil n'est pas très présent... C'est pas Vancouver !
Sans parler des moustiques et autres bestioles en tous genres... :cry:

Ok, I stop writing in French! :D

Ugh, oui je sais que vous avez un problème avec les moustiques et les autres insectes. C'est dégoûtant. Nous n'avons pas cette problème ici. ;)

Vancouver est souvent très aride pendant l’été surtout par rapport aux villes en Quebec, (De tous les grands villes aux Canada, je crois que nous sommes le plus aride dans Juillet) mais nous en payons pour sa pendant l’Automne et l'Hiver et aussi pendant le Printemps quelques fois comme cette année. :lol:

Looks like YVR recorded a trace of rain yesterday(probably near midnight); I guess we'll see tomorrow if they got any measurable rain today.

Good job! ;)

Yes, I know. I have been studying Canada's climate for nearly 10 years, and especially Vancouver's climate. I'm from Toulouse, in France, and I'm used to warm and dry summers, like in Kamloops.
I agree there's too much rain in Autumn and Winter in Vancouver, but snow is never very far from the city. That's a very good point to me.

So... back to topic! My pleasure to discuss a bit. ;)

Thanks, hopefully my french wasn't too rusty.

Yeah, the variations in climate in short distances here are pretty amazing. You can go from 6C with rain in downtown to 0C with snow at the base of the local mountains just a few km away. We have a saying that you can ski and golf on the same day. 8-)

12z gfs gives us a widspread ~25mm thru to hr 384. Good news for the fire affected regions as the cariboo looks to get between 25 and 75mm.

Speaking of hr 384, this is the pattern that the gfs is showing for that day. If only it was January 1st and not August 1st.....

I recieved 0.6 mm of rain sometime early this morning. Last rain before this was June 18th.

Canada Goose, your English very good. But just in case...je parle français aussi. My Dad was born in Montreal and I have family in Quebec still. My spoken french is definitely not great but I can fully understand written french. My kids are in french immersion school too. :) It will be a big change for you once you come out to this area. I'm sure many here will hope you'll bring some cold and snow with you even though you probably want a break! And although we have mosquitoes, they're not too terrible unless you're off in the woods somewhere. Then again, mosquitoes don't like me as much as other people and I don't get bit often so maybe others will disagree. ;)

Excellent news!

For what its worth, weather.com has put out a fall forecast and has us with below average temps through the fall. I would imagine that to continue into the winter, but its a long way off for now.
