37.5C at 1100m on the coast? Definitely overexposed!

EDIT: Here's Osoyoos:

From here. This station used to read really high (1990 until the early 2000s), but then started to become normal after that. Perhaps the green vegetation grew up around it and/or the black pavement become less black over time. Or just bad instruments as was known to be the case with the "CS" weather stations in the early years.

Here is Kamloops (YKA).

Thoughts?

Seems like a good location to me. All time record set this year at 40.8C (better than the old record of 40.7C set in 2014, which was better than the 1971 record of 40.6C).

Yes. And it's also why (in my view) Kamloops' record high is only 40.8C. I say "only" because it's far, far hotter than many places that have recorded temperatures well in excess of 40.

BTW, The average daily July high in Kamloops over the past 30 years is 29.5C!

Lansdowne House in northern Ontario...

LandsdownHouse.jpg


This photo of a weather station in Lansdowne House, Ontario contains a small, white building, which houses a data logger and barometric pressure sensor for this station. There is a small box with slatted sides called a Stevenson screen, which contains instruments for measuring temperature, dew point, and humidity. There are three pole shaped wind sensors with instruments on the top, two of which are 10 meters tall, and the third is two meters tall. These sensors measure wind speed and direction. There are two small precipitation gauges. One is an all weather gauge and the other is a tipping bucket gauge. Finally, there are three snow depth sensors as well. The station is located on a patch of gravel in an open, grassy area.
