It got up to a balmy 25°C yesterday both at Alberniweather and officially at the Airport. The record was 28.5°C in 1998 so we didn’t get there, but still not too shabby.

Today will be even hotter though. Considering we have consistently out performed the forecast high by a degree or two every day we have a chance at breaking 30°C today! I haven’t even had a chance to start up a contest!

Here is the latest chart run. If you are wondering why the colours are different from the ones from earlier this week, don’t worry that fooled me for a bit too! But they have simply shifted to their “summer” scale so the colors for each temperature has changed.

This will be a very short loved hot spell. Tomorrow we will be back down in the 15°C range and will stay there with a chance of showers through the weekend.

Happy May 1st everyone!

  1. Great photo. These children are so fortunate to live with parents who appreciate the value of adventure and play, and whose sense of what’s appropriate for the time and place puts wonderful experiences in their path. Oh, and thanks for the nice weather. The dirt was flying everywhere yesterday.
