It's been quiet here

With my real job very busy right now with extended hours and otherwise getting ready to go camping, I have no time for my hobby.  BUT, in preparation for my vacation next, I did look at the weather for next week up in Algonquin:

Sunday’s okay.  Maybe a chance of afternoon showers/t-showers
Monday’s warmer.  Also a chance of afternoon showers/t-showers
Tuesday’s warmer and a higher chance of showers/t-storms.
Wednesday’s scattered showers and getting cooler
Thursday & Friday, clearer but cooler.

But most worrisome:  Biting insects are in full force in the region.

Update to Chance of showers

It's included in Env. Can. 11 AM forecast:
Today, 2 July: Cloudy with 30 percent chance of showers early this afternoon then a mix of sun and cloud. Wind becoming southwest 20 km/h this afternoon. High 28. UV index 8 or very high.

Chance of showers

Unlike the Env. Can. current forecast (Sunny. Becoming a mix of sun and cloud this morning. Wind becoming southwest 20 km/h late this morning. High 28. UV index 9 or very high.), there is a chance of getting wet this morning.

Quick look at the week

Hot and humid with popcorn thunderstorms today, tomorrow and perhaps into Wednesday.  The remainder of the weeks gets cooler but remains unsettled until Friday.  The weekend is looking pretty good.

As side note, after a month into the season, the Atlantic tropics are finally popping into action.   Eastern North Carolina will likely be hit with what could be a major hurricane("Arthur") this Friday, spoiling 4th of July celebrations for a lot of people.

For those unsure who to cheer for in the World Cup

Here is a flow chart to help...

Short term debate

US models show tomorrow the bulk of the precipitation tomorrow going north of us.  The Euro and Can. model have the bulls-eye right over eastern Ontario. 

The Long weekend will start nice but instability will enter into the picture later Sunday.  However there is some debate about timing and location.

Oh and welcome to summer

As of 6:51 AM tomorrow morning, the sun will reach its most northern apex.   Then the days will start getting shorter....

Pre-weekend post

Weekend weather turning out nice.   It's going to gradually warm up.  Next significant rain potential is late Tuesday into Wednesday, just like this past week.
