In 5 short hours I’ll be catching a bus to Kamloops to take care of some arrangements for my China trip. Especially when I’m walking, I even find our 18-degree celsius temperatures warm enough. Environment Canada says to expect highs of 30-degrees back in Kamloops!
As I take another look to Tianjin, China, it’s currently 26-degrees at 5 PM. Over the last few weeks I’ve noticed the ocassional thunderstorm appear on my weather icon in the homepage right-column. I’m surprised at how similar in temperature Tianjin appears to be, although Kamloops is very dry in comparison.
Just by looking at this climate information page for Tianjin the 30′s are as hot as it usually gets, while Kamloops usually tops at 38. At their heights, Tianjin can get as much as 175 mm of rain in July, while Kamloops gets a peak of 30 mm in August.
My friend from Hong Kong was right in suggesting I pack lots of shorts and t-shirts to Tianjin. I never doubted her, but it’ll be another thing to experience it for myself.
