Hot Temperatures Unusual This Month

Regional | by Kevin Bernard  

Environment Canada stats show the last week has had the most hot weather all summer.

If you thought we are in the longest stretch of hot weather this year, you are right.

Today marks the seventh day in a row that the temperature has hit 26 degrees or higher.

In that stretch there have been 3 days where we hit 29 degrees at Wiarton, Airport (where Environment Canada keeps official records) on September 22nd, 24th and 25th.

Those highs do not include humidity, so it felt even hotter.

Meanwhile, Environment Canada records show only three days in August where it was 26 degrees.

In July there were five days where it was 26 or higher, with the warmest temperature recorded on July 1st at 27.8 degrees.

And if you are looking for 29 degrees for a high other than this month, you have to go back to June 10th.

There were four days in June where we recorded 26 or hotter.
