That's crazy. Thanks wxBell, now I don't have to pay $250 US per year to you!
Can someone explain the big deal here? I looked at the maps on the link here and there not all that great unless I'm missing something. The free GFS maps on Tropical Tidbits is a better looking product to me to me.

There very well could be some low single digits early next week. Possibly some light frosts in outlying areas.

Pitt Meadows was the hottest place in Canada today (yesterday?) at 30.4C. It was so warm, that the coldest place in BC (Tatlayoko Lake at -1.8C) still managed to hit 26.3C in the afternoon. That's almost as hot as it's been all September.

As for the latest it has ever hit 30C, it's too late at night to look that up. All I know is that some places set records today including West Van, but Abbotsford, Victoria, and Vancouver did not.
