Let the heat wave begin!

After the cool, clammy swoon of June (June-uary to sad-eyed sun-worshipers) July is finally ready to turn on some real live summer heat.

Sometime Monday morning the clouds will part to reveal the UFO formerly known as the sun, making an opening appearance for a scheduled 14-day stay.

If -- and itís often a pretty big if -- the forecasters get it right, nary a sprinkle will fall for a fortnight. It could be a sunny spell unthinkable during a June fit for ducks and umbrellas, not swimsuits.

The weather gods say itís now safe to find the drawer where youíve stashed the sandals and sunscreen, because by Friday fearless forecasters predict a sweltering 30 degrees.

In Vancouver this is considered a heat wave...elsewhere it would be considered warm summer weather.

It barely gets over 25 let alone close to 30 or even above that. So this up coming weather will be considered a heat wave compared to what we have right now anyways.

The problem with most Vancouverites is you can't find a happy medium. It has been grey skies and 15 degree weather for 3-4 days now and they keep complaining about the un-summery weather. Just watch, in 2 weeks time, everybody will be complaining again, "It's too hot, when will this end?" and I will be here facepalming. You can never go satisfied in life not finding a happy medium. It happens every summer and winter, Too hot, too cold, too mild. Guess what? It's Vancouver you've been living in this for years probably by now.

I think I am just angry because my perfect street hockey weather went away, on too the somewhat endless afternoons of sunscreen, frantically find shade and water and trying to score goals. :/

Kinda wished it got gradually warmer. Nope, in Vancouver, you have extreme heat one day and then the next day you have extreme cold.

And their "sleeves" that they wear when they drive!

Seriously. I have no words for their dedication towards being pale. Maybe that's the secret to Asian skin -- life-long avoidance of UV rays.

I hope doesn't heat up too badly especially at night. I don't have air conditioning so I have to open the window and I live right on No. 3 Rd so it is always frickin loud.

LOL at those visor things, my mother has one and it really doesn't impede with your vision that much. Carrying an umbrella I find a bit ridiculous though.

Is it going to be bad as last summer?

Wait till you're in Las Vegas, it's a freaking oven, 24/7.

During last year's heat wave, it was so hot in the office for several days that management told everyone to go home and take a few days off. :D Hopefully it happens again!

Exactly!
Only rain during winter = sucks that there's no snow, rains too much, global warming, etc.
Snowing during winter = stupid snow can't drive now, too cold, global warming messing the weather
Raining during spring = too much rain, where's the sun?
Sunny during spring = where's the rain? I miss the rain
Cooler summers = where's summer? where's the sun? I want to go Mexico where's it's warm
Hot summers = too hot! I miss the rain. Stupid global warming. Can't wait to go to Mexico!

I'd swear, people would probably only be happy it's like 18 degrees, partially cloudy with a chance of rain.... year-round.

This is the satellite image of the systems that will be heading our way and by the looks of things, NO systems are headed our way!

The big cloud arch near Vancouver Island is the edge of the jet stream and whats headed for us is that BIG PATCH OF NO CLOUDS and a HOT southern air mass.

This is looking very good for us!
