Just heard that 90% of the town of Lytton, BC is destroyed :(  Lots of big wildfires in Western Canada, and the pyrocumulus clouds which are created during intense fires have been creating firestorms on an epic scale, according to meteorologists in the area, on a scale never seen before.  Thousands of lightning strikes every second!

It's going to be pretty hot on Sunday even at 66 degrees north in Norway.  The national record is 35.7C, which will probably stand, and the local record for this place is 35.0C.  This is the forecast for Mosjøen:

This fire and smoke season is --(unsurprisingly given the state of the drought)-- terrible. It's not even August yet!

The smoke has made it to the east coast, it's even near ground level and the sun and moon looked red yesterday!

Because there are lots of fires all across Canada, not just the west coast of the U.S. Particularly Saskatchewan and northwest Ontario.
