If I end up doing worse than TWN I'll hang my head in shame. :lol: You guys won't ban me, right?! What I lack in forecasting skills I make up for with charm? ;) 8-)

Do you expect an offshore flow Friday?

Offshore flow looks a little stronger at the mid and upper levels. Airmass is a touch cooler though. Temps probably end up similar to today.

Okay, so I messed up the lows from yesterday. I used the data from Wunderground, but forgot that it was the lows from the previous 24 hours. Fixed now.

Interestingly enough, Bella Coola was 41.2C back in 2009. The only other places in Canada that got that hot that year were Lillooet (also 41.2) and Gold River on northern Vancouver Island at 41.5C (recorded to the nearest half degree).
