Autumn Heat Wave

Our area has been experiencing an autumn heat wave. It started as a late summer heat wave, as we've been warm since Labour Day weekend, but this past week or so has been more like late July, or early August weather. But, the forecasters are telling us that today should be the last full day of the autumn heat wave of 2017. Anyone who works outside will be relieved, anyone who was hoping for 1 more weekend of it will be disappointed. I'm ready for the shift in the weather. The high pressure that has dominated our area will shift easterly and cooler air will replace it. It will feel more seasonal and gone will be the autumn heat wave.

That's what we've been experiencing. Although I like the warm weather, this is a little over-kill here and most of us are ready for cooler weather, which is still very enjoyable.

Ours 'broke' today, finally. The last 7 days have been 92, 93, 93, 92, 93, 91, and 92. Today, it is supposed to be 81.

Oh, that sounds like such a nice temperature! Tomorrow is supposed to be our change day. There is a bit of rain in the forecast, but we've had so little, and its sad because my car needs a bath! Enjoy the cooler day today.

Even 81 is too warm for me. I'm more of a 50s and 60s girl.

It's warm but not hot, this is the perfect temperature for me, warm enough not to need to heat the house, but not so hot you sweat staying inside.

I'm looking forward to the daytime highs dropping significantly and the humidity also. This is more like late July or early August weather. The school boards are reporting difficulty with the students in schools that are not air conditioned, and I saw a father on the news that took his daughter out of school so that they could spend a day at the beach. I don't know if she would have missed anything since there looked like a lot of other school-aged kids on that beach too.

@Juliaacv The schools do not have air conditioning here, as they stop at the end of June and re open at the end of August.

@LadyDuck Where we used to live the schools had a/c, mostly because of age. When they budgeted for new hvac systems they had it installed then. And it did make a huge difference in the life of a student, especially that last month of the school year-June, and again in September, the first month back again. And I would imagine that summer school, held for 6 weeks each July and August was easier on everyone also.

Fall is my favorite season. The air is cooler, usually, and the colors that Autumn offers to us are beautiful. Down here in Florida we miss a lot of the colors and most of the cooler air. I am so glad you have it where you are. Enjoy.

We probably won't enjoy the colours like we usually do. They are telling us that without the cool nights and warm days that is impossible. The leaves are turning brown on the trees and falling from the dry and hot conditions. Running the a/c during late September and going to the beach and wearing flip flops is just so not the norm here in our corner of Ontario. But the forecast was for a warm autumn, so far that has been true.

I don't know where in Canada you are, but we seem to be having the same weather. Here, we've also gotten the humidity from two hurricanes as they head out to sea, and today will be another uncomfortable one, BUT, also the last one. Temps are supposed to drop overnight and be much lower tomorrow. I can't wait, as I am NOT a warm weather person at all.

No, I'm not a warm weather person, and the high humidity makes me very weak. I'm in Southern Ontario, and since we are in the middle of the Great Lakes, humidity is a given. But they are saying that today should be the last day of the autumn heat wave.

@Juliaacv Same here, and the wind is up now which will usher in the cooler air. The heat and humidity sap me of all my energy. And the cooler weather always perks me up. Can't get here soon enough. This was one of the longest hottest summers I've lived through in a long time.

@Raelove Our summer was not as hot as we usually experience, although we did have a couple of heat waves, the rest of the summer was a little on the cooler side.

I'm glad you're finally feeling some relief from the heat. I was also happy when I looked at the weather this morning and saw we've gone down about twenty degrees since yesterday. It felt so nice going to the pool this morning.

We've been having a heatwave of our own this month. Like you, ours is supposed to end by the weekend. I'm looking forward to saying goodbye to summertime heat and having to run the AC constantly!

I know, I am looking forward to being able to open the windows and let the fresh air flow thru the house. But I don't think that we'd have been very comfortable without the a/c these past few weeks.

I don't like the heat during the summer so I really don't like it now when it should be cooler and nice. This is MY time of the year, but tomorrow should be MY weather, as it will be cooler and nicer.

Yes, we had great weather in early September but then the heat arrived and we have had some of the hottest days of the year this past week. Looking forward also to the cooler weather.

This is so unseasonable for us. We usually have warm days but cool nights and that is what causes the leaves on the trees to change from green into those brilliant colours of red, amber and gold. But not this year, they are actually falling from the trees brown, and that is due to the dry and hot conditions.
