Re: [Weather] Canadian weather...

==WEATHER EVENT DISCUSSION==

A VERY EARLY FEAST OF ALMOST SUMMER-LIKE WARMTH CONTINUED TODAY.

VERY WARM AIR, MORE TYPICAL OF LATE MAY OR EARLY JUNE, COMBINED
WITH THE STRONG MARCH SUN HAS RESULTED IN A NUMBER OF NEW RECORD
MAXIMUM TEMPERATURE RECORDS BEING SET FOR SUNDAY 18-MAR-2012.
PLEASE REFER TO THE TABLE BELOW FOR MORE DETAILS.

THIS WARM SPELL IS PROJECTED TO LAST WELL INTO NEXT WEEK, AND WILL
PROVIDE MANY MORE OPPORTUNITIES FOR NEW RECORD MAXIMUM TEMPERATURES
TO BE SET OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS ACROSS SOUTHERN ONTARIO. IT IS ALSO
QUITE POSSIBLE THAT BY LATER NEXT WEEK, A FEW LOCALES MAY EXPERIENCE
THE LONGEST STRETCH OF DAYS IN A ROW IN MARCH WHERE THE MERCURY
REACHES OR EXCEEDS 20.0 C.

i feel bad for wolfie... for him, it is the end of the season where he can be comfortable, and now, he'll be hot until november, constantly panting, and drooling on the carpet with his tongue out.

He is likely to be found next to an air conditioning vent to cool down.

Will his tail continue to wag constantly ? Generally, animals when in such heat, tend to become lethargic.

Oh yea... Grill to plate is the best. Warm breezes, cold beer, and sunshine does the soul good!

Started my vegetable garden last Sunday, March 11. Looks like it will make it into April with only a very small chance of any frost. Should be record early harvests. (I have mostly cold season crops in, threw one row of bean seeds in just for fun) My fruit trees are beginning to flower, if the commercial farms trees are starting a frost would be devastating to their operations. I have asparagus growing as well, which could lead to a harvest before March is even out - the way it grows probably the first days of spring.

From a growing season prospective, in my region, Halton South (on Farmzone from the Weather Network) from March 1 - April 18, 2011 there were 34 growing degree days recorded. From March 1 - March 17, 2012, we are already at 37 days - a full month ahead of last spring. With today's heat I'm sure we are closer to 50 growing degree days which wasn't hit until the last week of April last year.

TODAY IS THE FIRST DAY OF SPRING. BUT IT FEELS LIKE THE FIRST DAY
OF SUMMER. WE ARE IN THE MIDST OF AN HISTORIC WARM SPELL ACROSS
ONTARIO WITH RECORD TEMPERATURES TUMBLING BY THE DOZEN EVERY DAY.
ALMOST 160 DAILY HIGH TEMPERATURE RECORDS HAVE BEEN REWRITTEN OVER
THE PAST WEEK ACROSS THE PROVINCE. SOME RECORDS HAVE BEEN SHATTERED
BY AS MUCH AS 14 DEGREES.

NORMALLY WE ARE STILL FEELING THE CHILL OF WINTER'S FINAL BREATH.
BUT INSTEAD, WORDS SUCH AS HUMIDEX, DAFFODILS AND PATIO WEATHER
ARE ON EVERYBODY'S LIPS. EVEN ACROSS NORTHERN ONTARIO THE SNOW
PACK HAS BEEN MELTING AT INCONCEIVABLE RATES. FOR INSTANCE,
GERALDTON REPORTED 31 CENTIMETRES OF SNOW ON THE GROUND ON MARCH
18TH. TWO DAYS LATER IT HAD VIRTUALLY ALL MELTED.

IT APPEARS THAT THIS MARCH WILL LIKELY BE THE WARMEST MARCH ON
RECORD FOR SOME PLACES. IN TORONTO (PEARSON AIRPORT), THE PREVIOUS
RECORD WARM MARCH WAS 1946 WITH AN AVERAGE TEMPERATURE OF 5.2
DEGREES (THE AVERAGE OF ALL HIGH AND LOW TEMPERATURES), WHERE
NORMALLY THE AVERAGE IS -0.4 DEGREES FOR PEARSON. GIVEN THE
FORECAST TRENDS FOR THE FINAL DAYS OF MARCH, IT APPEARS THIS RECORD
MAY BE HANDILY BROKEN. IN FACT, MARCH 2012 MAY GO DOWN AS THE MONTH
WITH THE WARMEST DEPARTURE FROM NORMAL OF ANY MONTH FOR TORONTO,
INCLUDING DOWNTOWN WHERE RECORDS BEGAN IN 1840! THE HOTTEST MARCH
DAY EVER RECORDED AT PEARSON WAS 25.6 SET BACK IN 1946 ON MARCH
28TH. THIS MAY VERY WELL BE BROKEN ON THURSDAY OF THIS WEEK.

THIS WARM SPELL IS ALSO REMARKABLE FOR ITS DURATION. IT IS MORE
REMINISCENT OF A PERSISTENT SUMMER HEATWAVE. THE WARM SPELL IS
PROJECTED TO LAST THROUGH THURSDAY AFTER WHICH A COLD FRONT WILL
INTRODUCE SOMEWHAT COOLER AIR (BUT STILL ABOVE NORMAL) ON FRIDAY.

BELOW ARE RECORD MAXIMUM TEMPERATURE RECORDS SET ON TUESDAY
20-MAR-2012. PLEASE REFER TO THE TABLE BELOW FOR MORE DETAILS.
