Over 40C in Alberta yesterday....

Canadian hotspots:
1 Garden River, AB = 40.3° C
2 Warfield = 39.4° C
3 Nelson =38.3° C
4 Osoyoos = 37.8° C
5 Clearwater = 37.7° C
6 Creston = 37.4° C
7 Fincastle, AB = 37.1° C
8 Rockglen, SK = 37° C
9 Kamloops = 36.9° C
10 Vauxhall, AB = 36.9° C

* Note: Ashcroft would have been in the top 5, but the weather station went out because of the fires.

EDIT: Nope, Ashcroft didn't get that warm (probably because of the smoke). Wasn't even top 10. The station is now back on.

Oh dear, I have friends in Clearwater :/

They're on Evac Alert for a fire at the moment.

Last night there was a trace of rain - I was at a Zumba event in East Kelowna, at the Vibrant Vine. If it wasn't for the brief breezes and even briefer overcast I'd have heat exhaustion for sure!
I haven't failed until I quit.

Some thunderstorms popping up in the east. Sounds like we could get some storms here in Kelowna along the east slopes later today.

A friend of mine just flew through a snowstorm!

But the snow was not over the fires. Here are a couple of fire pictures of the big azz Miner Lake fire way up at 5,000 ft. It's a narrow valley surrounded by snow capped mountains, so it won't be going anywhere.
