Mid-August Monsoons


Recap: Aug 10 to 16.
Our weather has warmed back up but we have been having a fair bit of rain over the past week. Wednesday evening there was torrential rain along with some thunder and lightning. The temps started to rise into or above the normal range on Thursday and it has been quite humid.
There doesn’t appear to be any big storms on the way in the near future and some dryer weather should be in our area by the first of next week. There is a possibility of showers for mid-week.
TS Fay, currently in the Caribbean, is not expected to have any effect here. It is, however, expected to increase to hurricane strength before making landfall in western Florida on Tuesday.

Cooler....


Well it feels like summer is over here.We are already getting more autumn-like weather....lots of big cumulus clouds,cooler temps and lower humidity.Whether or not this will last through August is anyone's guess but the conditions stretch from
here and into the New England area of the US.
There is lots of unsettled weather to come and the tropics are once again getting active after a week of no events.
Currently there are two area in the Atlantic being watched and both may develop into depressions or storms.
There are no storms currently expected here for this week.Temps are expected to be in the low 20s with some rain possibly on Tuesday.The expected highs are in the normal range for us as determined by Enviroment Canada.

On another note,I have found a great desktop weather program that is FREE and offers lots of features.It needs a little tweaking after installing it but works great.Check it out HERE.
