Wow.. What a beautiful start to October! Under sunny skies and a nice southwest breeze, temperatures rose to a balmy 26.8C at my Charleswood station today, (26C at Winnipeg airport)... some 12C above normal for October 1st. Felt just like summer out there. Shorts and bike rides were the norm today. It was even warmer south of Winnipeg, with Morden hitting 29C today - the hottest spot in Canada! Should be nice again tomorrow, although not quite as warm.. with highs around 18-20C. Still nice for early October.
