Another Hot One Today.. Little Cooler for the Weekend & Still Dry...July 25th

Download Flash Player to view this content.
  • Day 28 of the dry weather..in case you're still counting. That means just 6 days until we beat the all-time driest July for YVR..and first completely dry month on record
  • A few daily temp records broke yesterday across the interior including Cranbrook at 34.1, Creston at 35.4 & Nelson at 36.5. Hot spot across the entire country was Warfield BC at 37.8.
  • Morning fog took a little longer to burn off today but high pressure remains stationed to our SW so another dry and sunny and sticky one today. Humidex will still be a factor but a lovely westerly breeze will make today feel a little more comfortable closer to the water
  • A gradual cooling trend will begin Saturday as an upper level low off our NWS coast begins to slide in across the province. Doesn't look like it brings much in the way of anything else- just a few more clouds in the mid Sat & Sun and more comfortable temps in the low 22s for the lower mainland
  • Mix of sun and cloud through next week at this point 
  • Fire danger creeping up across southern BC; high to extreme across the south: http://bcwildfire.ca/weather/maps/danger_rating.htm

Tropical Storm Dorian to Approach Leewards Sunday
  • Right now Dorian is a small but punchy system well off the east coast of the leeward islands but tracking westward
  • Looks like this storm is a potential threat to the Leeward Islands this Sunday
  • Still a lot of uncertainty in the path but right now most of the long range projections either have Dorian then turning northward out to sea.. OR continuing into Cuba or Floria late next week
  • Definitely one to watch closely but still a ways out

Pigeons Fly Home With a Map in Their Heads
  • And for your animal story of the day...experiments have proved that pigeons have a spatial map and thus possess cognitive capabilities.
  • Homing pigeons fly off from an unknown place in unfamiliar territory and still manage to find their way home.
