Weather summary
for Newfoundland
issued by Environment Canada
at 12:45 p.m. NDT Wednesday 27 June 2018.

Discussion.

A low pressure system formed off Cape Cod on Sunday night and
tracked just south of the Avalon Peninsula on Tuesday. This system
brought rain, gusty northerly winds, and even some early-summer
snowfall to Newfoundland. For Gander, while it wasn't the latest
date on record with observed snowfall, it was the largest snowfall
on record for the last week in June. In addition to Gander,
snow-covered ground was observed on Tuesday across the Newfoundland
interior, including Grand Falls-Windsor, Buchans, the higher terrain
along the Bay d'Espoir and Burgeo Highways, as well as higher
elevations around Corner Brook and the Bay of Islands.

The following is a summary of event information received by
Environment and Climate Change Canada.

1. Rainfall amounts in millimetres:

Bay Roberts: 54.6
St. John's Int'l Airport: 52.8
Terra Nova Nat'l Park: 48.9

This mark is probably overestimated: https://www.wunderground.com/blog/weath ... e-620.html

Maybe. Your link says "plausible if not questionable", which means it's not full moon nutbar by the record setting 41.7C for Labrador. My link is also written by a climatologist in Alaska, and he say's it's likely to have occurred. Remember that Alaska bigger than all provinces except Quebec, so you are talking 100s of km apart between weather stations.

Think about BC and how much the temperature change from Kamloops to Prince George for example.

Of course, I agree with you. :)

About the 41.7 in North West River, it's a real joke... :lol:

Same goes for the all time record low for Ontario. -58C? I don't think so!

Environment Canada record keeping sucks YUGE donkey nuts. You'd think that in this day and age where computers can pick up records a lot easier than humans they'd be getting better not worse.

So, I clicked on Kelowna normals, and it says that the all time record low for the month of June (set in 1973 at -0.6C), BUT if you look at June 2002, the temperature was -1.3C then.

You might be thinking, "Aw, but the hourly temperature was only 0.0C in June 2002," but that's only because you don't know the Kelowna airport. It's an amazing frost hollow spot that can easily drop several degrees between hours and then rise again before the next hour. It happens frequently, and in fact, the -0.6 (31F) record from 1973 only had an hourly reading of +0.6 (33F). Oh, and the temperature passed "quality control", so it's not like they are suspicious of the number.

EC just sucks sometimes. That said, I will give them credit for putting all the data online. Most meteorological agencies aren't so generous about that.

One more time, I agree with you. ;)
About data online, Meteo France sucks, for example... Even if it's better today than a few years ago.
