Vancouver breaks 103-year-old temperature record as arctic front continues
« Reply #260 on: October 11, 2019, 05:02:44 PM »
In Vancouver, a record cold reading of -0.6 C set in 1916 was broken by just 0.1 degrees Thursday morning, according to Environment Canada.

That wasn’t even the oldest record broken this week, however.

In the University of Victoria area, students walked to class on Thursday in 0.4 C weather — well down from the old record of 2.2 C set all the way back in 1890.

Bella Coola broke back-to-back records Wednesday and Thursday, starting with a -2.9 C reading that exceeded the -1.1 C record set in 1907. It got even colder Thursday at -3.4 C, a 0.1 degree change from a 1915 record.

The coldest record broken was a -14.5 C reading in the Sparwood area north of Fernie set in 2009. On Thursday, residents woke up to a -15 C chill.

Global BC’s chief meteorologist Mark Mardyga said the cold air is expected to stick around through Thursday, with warmer air moving in by Friday with a low of 3 C and a high of 16 C possible.

Ontario: Typhoon Hagibis will play a role in the big pattern change coming
Digital Writers
theweathernetwork.com

Friday, October 11th 2019, 8:38 pm - Some brief hiccups in the Thanksgiving long weekend weather ahead of an extended period of below normal temperatures thanks to influence from Typhoon Hagibis.

The Thanksgiving weekend is upon us as many southern Ontarians are eager to start the first long weekend of the fall season. While the stretch of gorgeous fall weather lingers into the start of the holiday, a brief hiccup on Saturday could leave some adjusting any outdoor plans. More on the timing of the rain, plus a look at how Typhoon Hagibis will keep things cool for the remainder of the month, below.

Visit our Complete Guide to Fall 2019 for an in-depth look at the Fall Forecast, tips to plan for it and a sneak peek at the winter ahead
WEATHER HIGHLIGHTS:

    Cold front will cross the south Saturday morning, temporarily halting the sunny weather
    Changeable pattern expected to continue through mid to late October
    Stay aware of ALERTS in your area

RAIN PUSHES INTO THE SOUTH SATURDAY

The streak of sunny days in the south will briefly come to an end on Saturday, as a front crosses the region through the morning hours. This will bring a few hours of rain into the early afternoon before reaching southern Quebec in the evening and overnight hours. Temperatures will drop, particularly in the southwest, where Windsor is expected to only hit a daytime high of 12°C.

ONSaturday

The unsettled weather will be shortlived, however as sunshine is poised to return by Sunday, along with a brisk wind and bump in temperatures back to the mid-teens. Similar conditions are expected for the holiday Monday.
IMPORTANT: SIGNIFICANT ROAD CLOSURES COULD IMPACT TRAVEL PLANS THIS WEEKEND
INFLUENCE FROM TYPHOON HAGIBIS

Enjoy the pleasant temperatures while you can, as a significant shot of chilly weather is expected to move in towards the middle to end of next week.

"This will bring periods of rain followed by several days of chilly weather with high temperatures struggling to reach the lower teens Wednesday through Friday," says Weather Network meteorologist Dr. Doug Gillham. "It looks like the final week of October will bring an extended period of colder than normal temperatures to the Great Lakes region."

pattern teleconnections

This change in the weather pattern is due in part to the track of Typhoon Hagibis, which will move across Japan and near Tokyo over this weekend.

While Hagibis will not make the trip all the way across the Pacific to Canada, it will still have a significant impact on our national weather pattern later next week.

"When a typhoon takes a track near or just east of Japan, typically the dip in the jet stream brings colder weather into the Great Lakes region," Gillham explains. "When the track is further to the west -- into Korea or China -- the dip in the jet stream will be further to the west with a colder pattern for western Canada and a warmer pattern for the eastern half of the country."

Stay tuned to The Weather Network for the latest updates.

State of emergency declared for Manitoba after wintry blast
Digital Writers
theweathernetwork.com

Sunday, October 13th 2019, 8:25 am - Some crews say they've "never seen anything like" the conditions in southern Manitoba.

Manitoba premier Brian Pallister declared a state of emergency for the province late Saturday night in the wake of a powerful wintry blast that's left tens of thousands without power. As of early Sunday morning, nearly 40,000 customers are still in the dark, according to Manitoba Hydro. The storm, which blasted southern parts of the province with as much as 70 cm of wet snow, has caused extensive damage to power lines in some areas. While snow tapers off on Sunday, temperatures flirting with the freezing mark will make flooding a concern as the soggy snow begins to melt. We take a look at what to expect for the rest of the long weekend, below.

Environment Canada issues special weather statement
Heavy rainfall, up to 50 millimetres, could hit the city on Friday.

Oct 11, 2019 10:10 AM By: Leith Dunick
rain-clouds

THUNDER BAY – A special weather statement has been issued for the city of Thunder Bay.

According to Environment Canada, rain, at times heavy, is expected to fall on the city most of the day, with the bulk of the rainfall happening on Friday afternoon and evening.

Between 30 millimetres and 50 millimetres is expected, with higher amounts possible in embedded thunderstorms.

The highest rainfall amounts are expected north of Lake Superior between Nipigon and Marathon, including Pays Plat, Terrace Bay and Neys, where rainfall warnings are in effect.

The rain is blamed on a Colorado low moving into the region, which could also bring snow to parts of the region over the weekend.

'Weather bomb' brings strong winds and rain Thursday

Strong fall storm will likely bring power outages and localized flooding to the Maritimes

Thursday's 'weather bomb' will bring heavy downpours and strong winds to the Maritimes. (Ryan Snoddon/CBC)

A powerful fall storm is taking shape today over the northeastern U.S. and it has its sights set on the Maritimes for Thursday.

It will be our season's first "weather bomb," which is a rapidly developing storm that drops 24 or more millibars of central pressure in 24 hours. This rapid strengthening makes the storm a bigger threat for strong winds.

The storm will track into southwestern Nova Scotia and New Brunswick with rain and strengthening winds early Thursday, and then spread northeastward across the rest of the region throughout the morning.

Thankfully, this storm is a quick mover. As you can see with the timeline below, the heaviest rain and strongest winds will blow through in six to eight hours.

5 months and counting: Broken weather station worries seaplane pilot

'The next maintenance trip is not yet scheduled,' says Environment Canada

A seasoned seaplane operator on B.C.'s coast is frustrated the federal government has not repaired an automated weather station located on a small island off Vancouver Island.

Joel Eilertsen, who operates Air Cab and flies loggers, surveyors and other commercial workers up the coast almost every day, says the weather station at Sartine Island is partly broken and has not reported wind direction and velocity for the past five months.

Eilersten says without having that wind direction and velocity information, coastal seaplane pilots could end up flying dangerous trips.

"It's very much a safety problem," says Eilertsen.

Sartine Island is located about 33 kilometres off the northwest tip of Vancouver Island.

What's behind Atlantic Canada's ferocious winds?
Caroline Floyd
Meteorologist

Sunday, October 20th 2019, 3:30 pm - Atlantic Canada is home to some of the strongest wind events in the country.

Under the right conditions, typically amid a fall or winter storm, both the Cape Breton Highlands and southwestern Newfoundland can be blasted by wind gusts as high as 200 km/h. That's as strong as the wind in a Category 3 hurricane.

Les Suêtes and Wreckhouse winds are both, in part, a product of the region's unique topography and its position at the eastern tip of North America.

Visit our Complete Guide to Fall 2019 for an in-depth look at the Fall Forecast, tips to plan for it and a sneak peek at the winter ahead
WHAT CAUSES LES SUÊTES WINDS?

The Cape Breton Highlands are the site of Les Suêtes, a name that derives from the French "sud est," describing their origin. The winds sweep out of the southeast over the plateau of the highlands -- about 480 metres above sea level -- and go screaming down to the Gulf of St Lawrence.

Though they can occur at any point in the year, Les Suêtes are most common in the winter, when the Maritimes and Newfoundland are often on the receiving end of rapidly-intensifying low pressure systems from the U.S. Northeast, including the infamous 'weather bomb'.

The downsloping effect is an essential component in making Les Suêtes so potent, but the ocean and the gulf also play a role. With the Gulf Stream off to the east and the chilly Gulf of St Lawrence off to the east, Cape Breton sits positioned between a very strong marine temperature gradient. That, in turn, sets the stage for a strong temperature inversion -- that is, a layer of warmer air sitting atop a colder layer.

Environment Canada Offers Explanation to Strange Weather
    Published: Friday, 25 October 2019 13:46
    Written by Dawson Brolund   

Weather Station

Some Southeast Saskatchewan residents may have looked at the forecast for today and into the weekend and been puzzled.

Yesterday had cooler temperatures hanging around 7 C while today is expected to jump as high as 17 C before dipping back down to 4 C along with some vicious winds.

Sara Hoffman with Environment Canada said that there is a good explanation for the strange weather.

"An El Nino will form in central Alberta and it will head straight eastward into Saskatchewan. Just north of that there will be a band of very heavy snow but since it's moving quickly we are anticipating snowfall amounts to stay around the 10-to-20-centimetre range for central portions of Saskatchewan north of that low. Again, because it's moving quickly we will have a powerful cold front with that low which will swing through southern Saskatchewan and eventually into Estevan by quite early tomorrow morning."

If you want to get outside this weekend, Ottawa's best bet for good weather is Saturday.

While Ottawa may see some fog Saturday, Environment Canada says the day should be mostly sunny. The high is a brisk 11 C and the winds will be light from the southwest.

The skies turn cloudy overnight when the low will dip to 4 C. Rain is expected to begin overnight and continue for the rest of the weekend.

About 15 to 25 mm of rain will fall in the Ottawa area Sunday, Environment Canada forecasts. The high is expected to be 10 C.

Kingston will also see mainly sunny skies Saturday but a special weather statement has been issued for the city overnight and into Sunday morning.

Between 30 to 40 mm of rain is possible, with the heaviest rain falling overnight tonight, Environment Canada says. Strong easterly winds up to 60 km/h are also possible.

The weather statement is in effect for Kingston along with Napanee, Consecon, Picton and Sandbanks Park.

Winter weather: Environment Canada updates Metro Vancouver forecast
By Elana Shepert -
October 28, 2019

Photo: Snow in Vancouver / Shutterstock

Last week, a powerful windstorm hit the South Coast of B.C. and left thousands of people without power in the Lower Mainland.

And while the winds won’t be as powerful this evening, Environment Canada calls for some unseasonably cold temperatures overnight. In fact, the forecast calls for temperatures to dip down to a frigid -1°C in the evening on Monday, Oct. 28. In addition, the forecast calls for strong winds overnight and into Tuesday morning.

Back in August, Environment Canada’s long-term Metro Vancouver weather forecast called for above average temperatures to continue into the fall season. However, the environmental department notes that there is less certainty now about the forecast heading into the coming winter season.

Vancouver Is Awesome spoke to Armel Castellan, Warning Preparedness Meteorologist, Environment Canada, about what he predicts the Lower Mainland has in store for the coming winter.

“We are always transparent in our forecasting,” remarks Castellan. “In fact, we won’t issue the official winter forecast until the final day of November.”

Castellan notes that some companies offer forecasts with sweeping statements that aren’t backed by accurate data. In contrast, Environment Canada issues a more reserved forecast, but one that is backed by historical data and accurate models.

“While September was warmer, the usual mean temperature for October in Vancouver is 10.3°C. So far, the mean temperature is 9.2°C, and the forecast calls for a number of number of cold days to finish off the month, too.”

Castellan adds that the region saw some unseasonably frigid weather earlier this month, when Vancouver set a record for the coldest day in 122 years. As such, October could see a colder than average overall temperature for the month.

As for the winter forecast, Castellan notes that although he can’t provide an accurate sense of the conditions beyond December, he can comment that the trend appears to be warmer than normal. With that in mind, he notes that, “this year in particular lacks a strong forecast signal.”

So, while the forecast for December calls for above average weather, forecasting into late January and February is decidedly less confident at this time.

If you felt like fall came unseasonably early in the Lower Mainland, you aren’t alone.

Not only have there been many dreary, rainy days, but there have also been a number of downpours. Vancouverites witnessed an intense downpour around 4 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 9 that caused flash flooding in parts of the city. As a matter of fact, Vancouver received over twice the average rainfall for September.

Here comes the rain again… and lots of it. So much so that Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for Toronto on Wednesday morning.

According to the weather agency, “potentially significant rainfall” is expected today through Friday morning.

“A low pressure system will approach Southern Ontario from the southwest. Rain is forecast to begin this morning and end Friday morning,” states the agency.

“Rainfall amounts of 30 to 50 mm are possible, with the heaviest rain occurring Thursday afternoon. Strong northwesterly to westerly wind gusts of 70 km/h are possible Thursday night into Friday morning.”

So not only will it be rainy, it will also be windy.

Environment Canada warns that if visibility is reduced during driving, turn on headlights and maintain a safe following distance.

“Remember pedestrians are more difficult to see when it is dark and raining.”

Canada. Victoria sees one of the coldest Octobers on record
« Reply #277 on: November 01, 2019, 08:20:19 PM »
 Environment Canada meteorologist Armel Castellan said preliminary numbers show 8.5 C as the mean temperature average (average of the maximum and minimum temperatures) at the Victoria International Airport this month. This makes October the fourth coldest October on record, beating 1946. Records have been kept since 1941. Third and second place is tied with a mean temperature average of 8.3 C in October 1984 and October 1972. The coldest October on record was 1949 with an average mean temperature of 8.1 C. The month had two colder weeks, this past week and earlier this month. Daily temperature records were broken on Oct. 9 and 10.  “Mostly clear skies and you don’t get that cloud that really acts as a blanket or insulator,” Castellan said. “So when you have clear skies, particularly when the sun is weaker and absent for so many hours of the day, then you can radiate a lot of that heat away from the surface and that’s why we got those colder mornings.” Castellan said during an average October, there are 3.3 days that drop below 2 C. This year, there have been eight mornings in Victoria that have gone below 2 C. There was a storm in the middle of the month so there were 75 millimetres of rainfall, close to average. September saw more precipitation that October.https://www.cheknews.ca/victoria-sees-one-of-the-coldest-octobers-on-record-618677/amp/?fbclid=IwAR075xIQHn9HemeI2ve5NDkIRbKeqzgzB_2GOvLSLDAYh-LUwUxlSYQTQ2Y&__twitter_impression=true

Montreal is joining several municipalities across Quebec in urging trick-or-treaters to delay going door-to-door for Halloween until Friday, due to a scary weather forecast that includes heavy rain and high winds.

Montreal Mayor Valérie Plante made the announcement on Twitter on Wednesday afternoon.

Environment Canada has issued a rainfall warning for the city and area, calling for between 40 and 70 millimetres of rain with winds gusting to 80 kilometres per hour between Thursday night and Friday morning.

The weather agency warns that people should be on the lookout for flash floods and water accumulation on the roads.

And yet, some 500 kilometres to the northwest in Rouyn-Noranda, 15 to 25 centimetres of snow are expected, but there are no plans in that community to cancel trick-or-treating.

Nasty November cold set to span most of the country
Dr. Doug Gillham
Meteorologist

Friday, November 1st 2019, 6:00 am - Widespread colder than normal weather kicks off November as a cross polar flow delivers arctic air directly from Siberia to central Canada.

As we kick off the month of November, parts of Canada have already had a taste of early in winter weather. During early November the wintry pattern will expand across much of Canada. We will dig into the details of our November forecast down below, but first a quick recap of October.

The coldest weather relative to normal during October was found across the Prairie provinces and B.C. Parts of southern Alberta were over 10 degrees colder than normal for the month. Meanwhile, northern Canada, Ontario, Quebec and western parts of Atlantic Canada were warmer than normal.
