The heat in the Arctic right now is incredible.  Areas with permanent ice were in the 70s today & the shores of Victoria Island, on the Arctic Circle, were near 80.  These readings are exceeding all-time record levels for some of these locations.

It was warmer in the Northwest Territories than it was here today, but we still had 75-80.

Even out west, the heat is intense.  The high elevations in the West are exceeding 100 & major wildfires are on-going near Seattle.  Hundreds of fires are underway out west & in Canada with this massive upper ridge.

Our cooler weather is the air spilling in from Ontario & Quebec.  The winds are also blowing due north to north-northeast right down the still cooler-than-normal levels of the Great Lakes.

Here, we are already down to 59-64 across there area as of 10:45 p.m.

After low to mid 50s tonight, 50-54 tomorrow night will be within 1-2 degrees of tying low temperatures for Friday morning.
