More sunshine and warmer too!

The weather, currently.

More sunshine as we push into the long weekend. A ridge of high pressure locks in the sunshine for yet another day. Friday morning will be bright with a wake-up temperature near 18°C. Mainly sunny conditions continue for the day, with a high of 28°C feeling just a tad warmer with the humidex. We will have just over 13 hours of daylight. As we push closer to fall, September is a big transitional month for daylight. By the end of this month the sunset time will be almost 1 hour earlier than it was at the beginning of the month. The wind will be light tomorrow from the south and the UV index will be 7 or high.

Friday Night: Mainly clear with a low of 19°C.

Side Note: The latest analysis for Labour Day weekend suggests increasing humidity on Saturday with rain showers for Sunday and sunshine returning on Monday. Wishing you a safe long weekend!

Currently fellow, Anna Abraham, has a new story up today on the record breaking heatwave sweeping across China:

"Almost half of China has been affected by its strongest heatwave since 1961, when complete meteorological observation records began, according to the China Meteorological Administration.

Afflicting northwest, central, and southeast China, the heatwave began on June 13 and broke the 2013 heatwave record of 62 days on August 15. The National Meteorological Center (NMC) of China has issued 30 high-temperature red warnings since the start of the heatwave, with 12 consecutive days of red warnings. China employs a four-tier warning system with red warnings representing the most severe event.

Over 200 national weather observatories have registered extremely high temperatures, with 45°C (115°F) recorded in southwest China’s Chongqing city last week."
