More thunderstorms today - rain for NASCAR?
Snow! Yes snow on the map this morning across northern Nunavut. As a matter of fact up to 5cm of snow, along with 50-70km/h winds are forecast for Resolute tonight with temperatures steady near 0C (32F). There my friends are the first signs of the changing seasons. You can feel it in the air as we approach mid August. A few of the trees are showing some color, the nights are getting longer and the dew a little thicker. The 32's of July have become the 28's of August.
There is till some summer left and it will be that way today with hazy sunshine to start we are siting at a humid 21C (70F) at Trudeau Airport. Temperatures will rise to near 27C (80F) today with an increasing chance of showers and thunderstorms. The showers will taper off after sunset with another cloudy humid day on tap for Wednesday and more showers. The balance of the week right into the weekend looks unsettled at this point with showers each day. We will have to watch the forecast and the threat of rain into Friday and Saturday, as the NASCAR Nationwide Series will be running in Montreal at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.
