|The waterfront in Cornwall, Ontario this past Sunday. Little rain, with the exception of thunderstorms, and sweltering heat, has left the grass a dry yellow. Only 70mm of rain has fallen since June 1. (ValleyWX Photo)|
Of Note: It remains hot on the prairies today with highs forecast in the mid 30's. yesterday portions of interior B.C. approached 37C (100F), while Val Marie in Saskatchewan hit 36C. The heatwave in the eastern US has dwindled into the southeast as some relief works its way south. It remains warm everywhere, in many cases upper 80's into the 90's but not as oppressive as the triple digit heat of the last two weeks. More thunderstorms are expected along the frontal boundary across eastern Virginia and the Carolina's as the cooler and drier air works its way south.
