Summer's Back in Full Force this Week

  • High pressure has built in off the west coast and will stick around right through to at least the start of the weekend
  • This means sunny skies and summer warmth with an offshore flow - and temperatures are on the climb over the next few days
  • Looks like peak heat will come Wednesday with daytime highs near 25 for YVR but more like 30 inland Vancouver! Many records will likely fall..
  • Overnights will come with more comfortable temperatures but will lead to morning fog at least for the next couple of days.. lingering through to late morning for some
  • At this point, looks like the pattern breaks down on Sunday with an approaching low
  • I will be at the Nat Bailey Stadium for the Vancouver Canadians winner-takes-all showdown tonight with Shane! See you there. And keep an eye out for UFOs apparently... http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2415882/UFO-spotted-hovering-Canadian-minor-league-baseball-game.html  #BeatBoise.

Humberto May Defend an Atlantic Hurricane Season Record
  • There have been no hurricanes thus far during the 2013 season in the Atlantic. However, Humberto, near the Cape Verde Islands Monday has a chance at becoming a hurricane during the middle of this week.
  • If Humberto strengthens to a hurricane and does so before Wednesday midday, the late-forming hurricane record will remain intact from 2002's Gustav on Sept. 11

Numbers Get Mapped In Our Brains Like A 'Sixth Sense,' Study Suggests
  • Whether it's determining the number of ships on the horizon or the number of cookies in a jar, the human brain has a "map" for perceiving numbers, new research shows.
  • Topographical maps of the human brain are known to exist for the primary senses, such as sight, hearing and touch, but this is the first time such a map has been found for numerosity, or number sense
