Found 10 records similar to Weather Stations and Forecast Regions
Locations of automated snow weather stations, active and inactive. Automated snow weather stations are components of the BC snow survey network.
Contained within the 4th Edition (1974) of the Atlas of Canada is a set of two maps. The first map shows the location of weather stations. Stations are denoted as having 25 to 30 year records within the period 1931 to 1960. As well, whether the station collected temperature data, precipitation data or both temperature and precipitation data is indicated.
Contained within the 3rd Edition (1957) of the Atlas of Canada is a map that shows the typical weather situations by means of four surface weather maps: for February 18th, circa 1954; April 19th, circa 1955; July 3rd, circa 1955; and October 12th, circa 1954. All maps are based on data of 1:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time for the afore-mentioned dates. There are two small inset maps: one shows air masses and the mean position of fronts in winter, the other shows the same concepts for summer.
Contained within the 4th Edition (1974) of the Atlas of Canada is a map that shows the chronology of selected facilities in settlements north of the 60th parallel. Selected facilities denoted include trading posts, missions, RCMP posts, post offices, weather stations and Distant Early Warning stations. Time periods in which the facilities were established as well as the operational status of these facilities as of 1965 is indicated.
Get data on boundaries of local climatic areas used for forest fire weather forecasting. This dataset shows the boundaries of administrative areas used for forest fire weather forecasting. North of the French River, boundaries correspond closely with Environment Canada’s areas for public weather forecasting. South of the French River, 25 Environment Canada areas are combined into six larger areas for provincial forecasting.
The map shows the location of the air temperature measurement stations. Fragmentary meteorological reports were prepared and published by European explorers in the North American Arctic during the late 16th and 17th centuries. Many employees of the Hudson's Bay Company kept careful observations of weather in Western Canada in the 18th and 19th centuries, and their records are still kept in the archives of the Hudson's Bay Company. Regular detailed weather observations were made for Quebec City, between April 1, 1765 and April 30, 1766.
The Canadian Meteorological Centre CMC produces Numerical Weather Prediction NWP as one of the key inputs to the Meteorological Service of Canada's overall public weather and environmental prediction and warning process. The raw data from NWP is made available to outside users who may use it for their own purposes. As NWP data is an early input into the overall MSC public forecast process, it may differ from the official forecast.
The high spatial and temporal resolution network was comprised of new automated land- and marine-based weather stations, and additional experimental monitoring platforms. Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) designed the Mesonet to monitor weather at the venues, while providing close tracking of southern Ontario lake breezes, which can be associated with severe weather initiation and high air pollutant concentrations. To track the lake breeze, existing land and marine monitoring capacity was identified and expanded to define the Mesonet. The Games hosted a number of open-water events in the inner harbour and south of the Toronto Islands, an area where the competition or logistics could be affected by thunderstorms, severe weather or heat stress.
The radar network consists of 31 weather radars spanning Canada's most populated regions, providing coverage to over 95% of the population. The network's primary purpose is the early detection of developing thunderstorms and high impact weather.
NAV CANADA (NC) provided Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) with automated minutely weather observations from six select AWOS stations (i.e. airport locations) in southern Ontario as an experimental, proof-of-concept program in support of the 2015 Games. The minutely data were at a higher temporal frequency than the hourly observations that are normally provided (sub-hourly weather specials, as required). The minutely data from these stations were considered raw and unofficial; observations can only be considered official after NC data processing and transmission to ECCC is in a specific format and fashion (as they are for hourly observations).
