I am so confused...I read the global news story. There is heat and fires are kicking up. A dry cold front is coming through on Friday which could start many more. Didn't see anything wrong with the story. I will remain optimistic that we can get some rain at some point, but certainly not in the next two weeks.


Dry cold fronts have the potential to be disastrous if the conditions are right. Case in point was the Silver Creek fire in Salmon Arm in '98. In late July some pop-up thunderstorms emerged after a couple weeks of intense heat. Lightning caused the fire, which didn't get much attention. After another week of hot, dry, stagnant weather, a dry cold front blew through.

Also I'm in the Yukon right now. Came outside of the music venue last night at 12:05 am and it was STILL BRIGHT OUT :o :shock: Weather has been rainy and cloudy though, but the people here are used to cold apparently :lol: I would highly recommend Whitehorse to anybody looking for a summer touring spot, the people here are mint.

Whitehorse is one of my favourite cities. Everything goes late in the summer months. Last time I was there it was 30 degrees... well, only like 27, but 30 something in Dawson, which is both the hottest place in the Yukon in the summer and the coldest place in the winter.

Whitehorse has very mild winters relative to anything north (Dawson), east (Watson Lake), or west (Haines Junction).

So when's your next trip to Kentucky lake? I'm going to whistler next week,plan on a little trout fishing and a game of golf if I can get my lower back to heal up in time. Whistler has truly become an all year recreation destination, with all the walking and biking trails,lakes,etc and now they've built a new suspension bridge at 7200 feet elevation.

Most likely my next rotation of 4 days off we'll do Kentucky/Allyne. Also want to check out Whistler haven't been there since 2011.

I see that the UV index forecast is 8 for both today and tomorrow. My peak UV index for the last two days was only 6.3. Why would it suddenly increase to 8? UV levels aren't correlated with temperature, as far as I know.

My highest UV index of the year was 7.6 on July 1st. That was a day with broken cloudcover and even some showers. In fact, the highest UV readings occur on partly cloudy days due to refraction of the sun's rays off the clouds. Snowcover also causes a similar effect.

There are no clouds expected this weekend, so I don't expect the UV index will be above 7. It will probably be about the same as the last two days. That said, I still wouldn't lay in the sun without wearing sunscreen. :lol:

The WHO lists Vancouver's maximum UV index as 7 in June and July. I assume this is for clear skies. http://www.who.int/uv/intersunprogramme ... ndex3.html
