Astonishing winter-like jet stream threatens two provinces with July SNOW
Tyler Hamilton
Meteorologist

Thursday, July 18th 2019, 10:36 am - This is a jet stream for the record books and its consequences are...snowy!

There's no benchmark for a jet stream this strong roaring across western Canada in the middle of July. With such a cold upper trough and racing upper level winds in the middle of July, this could bring some snowy consequences to parts of western Canada to round out this week.

Fortifications in Quebec CityPhoto: Shutterstock
Canada has the only walled city in North America

Quebec City has a special feature that makes it unique in Canada (and the U.S., for that matter): it has walls. One of the most fascinating facts about Canada is that Quebec City is the only city north of Mexico that still has fortified walls. First the French, and later the English, built up Quebec City’s fortifications between the 17th and the 19th centuries. Quebec’s entire historic district, including the ramparts, has since been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. It’s just one of 10 must-see sites in Quebec City and Montreal.

A sweaty Saturday: Hottest day of the year in Toronto, Ottawa

Humidex values in the 40s in parts of Ontario, Quebec with heat warnings across Canada

Keep cool, Canada. There's hot and humid weather in various parts of the country. (Canadian Press)

The sweltering weather continues Saturday with several parts of Canada under heat warnings.

It's the hottest day of the year so far for Toronto, said Environment Canada meteorologist Sherry Williams, among other parts of southern Ontario.

The Greater Toronto Area has daytime highs of 34 C, though it will feel more like 44 with the humidex.

The evening might not bring much relief  — the overnight low will hover around 22, but it will still feel like over 30 throughout the night.

It should cool down the GTA on Sunday, Environment Canada says, as humidity drops and temperatures fall into the mid to high 20s.

There's hot and humid weather in several parts of Ontario, southern Quebec, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, the agency warns.

Southern Quebec and Ontario have temperatures in the 30s, with humidex values reaching the upper 40s farther south.

Canada has more oil than you think

It’s thick, it’s sticky and Canada has an estimated 176.8 billion recoverable barrels of it. That’s right, crude bitumen—a semi-solid source of petroleum—is available in abundance in Canada’s oil sands. There’s an estimated 249.67 billion accessible barrels of the black stuff in the world and Canada has about 70.8 per cent of it—four times more than Kazakhstan and six times more than Russia.

Ranchers to meet with Weather Network after online beef over video about eating less red meat


The uproar needlessly pits agriculture against the environment, says one researcher

The Canadian Cattlemen's Association and The Weather Network are set to meet about a video by the media company that tackled research on how reducing beef consumption can help the environment. (J. Scott Applewhite/Associated Press)

An online uproar over a video about decreasing beef consumption is unnecessarily pitting agricultural producers and environmentalists against each other, says a sustainable food researcher.

Leading Canadian cattle producers are set to meet with The Weather Network on Monday to discuss sustainable beef production in response to the media company's video which was posted online on Thursday.

"We will raise the high level of concern felt by our members," tweeted Bob Lowe, vice-president of the Canadian Cattlemen's Association.

People respond this way when they either feel like they're being told what to do or they're being threatened.

    - Philip Loring, University of Guelph

The Weather Network video cites research done in co-operation with a group of international multi-governmental agencies that focuses on food sustainability heading into 2050, when the world's population is expected to reach approximately 10 billion.

"If you want to save the planet you might want to think about cutting back on the amount of beef you eat. So how much do you need to cut back?" the video's narrator said. "How about a burger and a half each week? That's the latest research from the World Resources Institute."

"Cows require about 20 times more land and they make more than 20 times more greenhouse gas than growing certain plants do. Cows also grow and reproduce slower than pigs and chickens so they need more food and water," the narrator said.

After the video was posted to Twitter on Thursday, some agricultural producers tweeted photos and videos of themselves deleting The Weather Network app. Former Saskatchewan premier Brad Wall tweeted that he would no longer follow the media company.

Canada’s national parks are bigger than most countries

One of the most mind-blowing facts about Canada is that the country is so big, even our parks dwarf other countries. Just look at Nahanni National Park Reserve in the Northwest Territories: not only is it a sight to behold with massive waterfalls, it’s also an incredible 30,050 square kilometres—bigger than Albania and Israel. Wood Buffalo National Park in Alberta and the Northwest Territories is even bigger at 44,807 square kilometres, which makes it bigger than Denmark and Switzerland.

Bad weather unexpectedly hits Canada retail trade, setback seen as temporary
Reuters   
David Ljunggren

OTTAWA — The value of Canadian retail trade unexpectedly dipped by 0.1% in May as unusually bad weather hit sales of food, drink and clothing, prompting analysts to predict the setback would be temporary.

Statistics Canada on Friday said sales fell in four of the 11 subsectors, representing 39% of total retail trade. The overall decline was the first in four months.

A Reuters poll of market operators had predicted retail trade would rise 0.3% from April.

Sales of food and drink dropped by 2.0%, which Statscan linked to unseasonably cold weather across Canada and heavy rainfall in some major cities. It was the largest month-on-month decrease since a 2.4% fall in January 2015.

The poor conditions also helped cut sales of clothing and clothing accessories by 2.7%.

“The weather in May was simply awful, generally a negative for retail activity. The sectors hit hardest … are consistent with bad weather,” said Benjamin Reitzes of BMO Capital Markets. “(This) should reverse in next month’s report.”

Prairies: "Insane" lightning hits Alberta, severe storm threat shifts east
Digital Writers
theweathernetwork.com

Wednesday, July 24th 2019, 7:27 am - Severe thunderstorms fired up across Alberta as an ongoing storm risk shifts eastward for Wednesday

The combination of heat, humidity, and a developing low pressure system is sparking severe storms across parts of the Prairies. No need for an alarm clock in southern Alberta early Wednesday, as intense thunder and lightning erupted over the region. Conditions will remain favourable for large hail, torrential rains, and even isolated tornadoes as this system makes its way east and puts parts of southern and central Saskatchewan right into the severe risk zone. We take a look at the persisting storm threat through Thursday, and where this system will bring some heavy, but beneficial rainfall, below.

ALBERTA AWAKES TO INTENSE LIGHTNING STORM

Strong storms fired up late Tuesday afternoon across Alberta, prompting Environment Canada to issue a swath of severe thunderstorm watches, along with numerous warnings, as large storm cells swept east from the foothills bringing heavy downpours and toonie sized hail.

Ontario: Humidity finally declines, below seasonal temps move in
Digital Writers
theweathernetwork.com

Saturday, July 20th 2019, 10:27 pm - Some areas will see below seasonal temperatures at the beginning of the work week

The cold front that brought severe thunderstorms and even a tornado warning for Cornwall on Saturday will help bring down the scorching humidex values. While there will be some showers during the early half of Sunday, the heatwave will finally come to an end as cooler and drier air moves into southern Ontario. For more on the lingering showers and cooling temperatures, below.
WEATHER HIGHLIGHTS:

    Lingering showers into Sunday morning
    Heat, humidity ease
    Stay up-to-date on the ALERTS in your area

WATCH BELOW: TIMING OF LINGERING RAIN ON SUNDAY

Isolated showers could persist into at least the early overnight across southwestern Ontario as the front pushes through, while the risk diminishes after sunset further east.

This cold front will help to cut through some of the humidity, and while Sunday will still feel slightly on the muggy side, humidex values will be significantly lower compared to the previous days.

CHANGE IN WEATHER PATTERN NEXT WEEK, COOLER WEATHER ON THE WAY

By the start of next week, a pattern change will bring much cooler and less humid weather to the province. Tuesday and Wednesday will continue to be a few degrees cooler than seasonal, but temperatures will return to near seasonal by late next week and possibly a couple of degrees above seasonal by next weekend. However, the warmup will be brief.

"While a couple of days of warmer weather are possible next weekend, overall a cooler pattern (near seasonal) is expected to dominate during the final days of July and into the first few days of August throughout the Great Lakes region, including southern Ontario," adds Gillham.

Ontario is one of the 13 provinces and territories of Canada and is located in east-central Canada.

It is bordered by the province of Manitoba to the west, Hudson Bay and James Bay to the north, and Quebec to the east and northeast, and to the south by the US states of (from west to east) Minnesota, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and New York.

As of March 2019, the population of Ontario was estimated to be about 13.5 million people. It is the most populous province in Canada.

Ontario is the 4th largest province in Canada in terms of total area with 1,076,395 square kilometers (415,598 square miles).

The province is also home to the nation’s capital city, Ottawa.

Ontario is a study in contrasts. The varied landscape includes the vast, rocky and mineral-rich Canadian Shield, which separates the fertile farmland in the south and the grassy lowlands of the north.

The Canadian Shield covers about two-thirds of Ontario. It’s a simple landscape of flat plateaus and low, rounded hills, crisscrossed by rivers and lakes.

01-Toronto is the provincial capital of Ontario and the most populous city in Canada, with a population of about 2.75 million people.

Friday, July 26th 2019, 9:00 am - Lightning took a destructive toll on parts of both western and eastern Canada this week

Although July is known as the peak of thunderstorm season across Canada, scenes like this put a whole new perspective on "when thunder roars, go indoors."

Full and spectacular burn marks were captured right in the grass after a lightning strike at hole 17 of the Edmonton Petroleum Golf and Country Club.

Canada’s honeybee winter losses attributed to poor weather
Nathan Howes
Digital Writer

Saturday, July 27th 2019, 5:50 pm - Five of the 10 provinces reported weather as the primary cause of honeybee winter loss in 2018-19

It’s no secret Canada’s weather was harsh at times this winter and spring, which was cited most frequently as the primary cause for honeybee winter losses in 2018-19.

This is according to the Canadian Association of Professional Apiculturists (CAPA), who, this week, released its findings of Canada-wide colony losses in this past winter season. CAPA works with provincial apiculturists to report on wintering losses of honeybee colonies and possible causes of bee mortality across the country.

The objective of the national document is to consolidate provincial honeybee losses across the country based on data collected through harmonized survey questions.

SEE ALSO: How clean is your city? Just ask the bees

The 536 sideline and commercial beekeepers who responded, representing 44 per cent of all surveyed targeted apiarists, were asked to identify and rank the top four possible causes of colony losses across the country.

In order, the most frequently cited causes were weather, starvation, poor queens and weak colonies in the fall. Five of the 10 provinces reported weather as the primary cause (B.C., Alberta, Ontario, Quebec and P.E.I.).

“Weather was considered an important factor for winter loss across the country, likely reflecting the very long and cold winter, in addition to the cold periods of weather well into April and May through many beekeeping areas,” CAPA said in the findings.

“In six provinces, weather was considered the No. 1 (five provinces) or No.2 (one province) factor contributing to reported winter losses. Similar to the previous year, beekeepers reported that a lot of bee colonies died in April and into early May.”
WINTER LOSS RATE DROPS

This year's national winter loss, including non-viable bee colonies, was 25.7 per cent with provincial numbers ranging from 19.8 per cent to 54.1 per cent. The latest figure decreased slightly from 2017-18, which had a loss rate of 32.6 per cent.

lake
Ontario has over 250,000 lakes, which contain approximately one-fifth of the world’s fresh water supply. With the exception of Lake Michigan, Ontario includes a portion of all the Great Lakes (i.e., Lakes Superior, Huron, Erie and Ontario).
The province is named after Lake Ontario, a term thought to be derived from Ontarí:io, a Huron (Wyandot) word meaning “great lake”, or possibly skanadario, which means “beautiful water” in the Iroquoian languages.

There are also over 100,000 kilometers (62,000 miles) of rivers in the province.

Checking in on the strange stats of Canada's 2019 tornadoes
Caroline Floyd
Meteorologist

Sunday, July 28th 2019, 6:30 pm - It's been an unusual year for Canada's tornadoes.

Summer 2019 took a long time to hit its stride across much of Canada, and when it comes to severe weather stats, it's still lagging behind for most -- with a few notable exceptions.

As of July 26, 42 tornadoes have been reported across the country, which is a decent 68 per cent of the yearly average, but a lot of that high score is thanks to one province.

Summer revealed! Visit our Complete Guide to Summer 2019 for an in-depth look at the Summer Forecast, tips to plan for it and much more

Alberta is leading the pack with 19 unofficial twisters on the books; that's 4 more than they see in a typical year overall, putting the province at 123 per cent of their yearly average. Saskatchewan is also pulling their weight when it comes to tornadic storms, with 13 suspected tornadoes thus far in 2019. The province typically sees about 18 tornadoes in a year.

Niagara Falls, arguably Canada’s most striking landform, straddles the international border between Ontario and the US State of New York. These dramatic falls include the larger Horseshoe Falls at 790 meters (2,600 feet) wide, and the smaller American Falls at 320 meters (1,060 feet) wide.

Report: Where will climate change hit Canada's coasts hardest?
Digital Writers
theweathernetwork.com

Monday, July 29th 2019, 3:20 pm - Canada’s long coastline is vulnerable sea level rise, but every stretch is different.

Canada famously has the longest coastline of any country in the world. That's a lot of real estate to monitor for signs of sensitivity of coastal areas to climate change.

Enter Gavin Manson, a coastal geoscientist with the Geological Survey of Canada who has spent the last eight years studying Canada's coasts for just that purpose.

Manson says the government has developed an index taking into account a variety of factors that lets them assess how vulnerable a particular stretch of coastline is, and the time frame in which it will be impacted.

For a more detailed look at the new report, watch Nathan Coleman's report above.

Ontario has 6 national parks and 334 provincial parks.

Algonquin Provincial Park is a provincial park located between Georgian Bay and the Ottawa River in Ontario. Established in 1893, it is the oldest provincial park in Canada. Additions since its creation have increased the park to its current size of about 7,653 square kilometres (2,955 sq mi). For comparison purposes, this is about one and a half times the size of Prince Edward Island or about a quarter of the size of Belgium.

Baseballs, golf balls and coins are usually used to describe the size of hail, but the severe thunderstorm that swept across the Edmonton region during the Friday supper hour dropped ice balls as big as grapefruit in some areas.

Environment Canada said the largest hail was reported west of the city in Spruce Grove, where teacup- to grapefruit-sized hail measuring 80 to 102 millimetres (three to four inches) was reported.

NORTHER ADVENTURE funDrove past the Cochrane polar bear, while looking for the train station, this past week. Boarded the locomotive to Moosonee and arrived five hours later . Walked down the main street; First Street, and went into the tiny museum for an interesting visit. It was an educational and informative trip.

Environment Canada has issued heat warnings for the Fraser Canyon and inland areas of the Central Coast and North Coast as a high pressure system continues to raise temperatures in B.C.

Several special weather statements have also been issued for parts of the southern Interior.

Temperatures could exceed 36 C in the Fraser Canyon, with temperatures in the mid-30s expected for the Okanagan and surrounding areas.

According to Environment Canada, the rise in temperatures are due to a ridge of high pressure that will remain over parts of B.C. through Thursday.

    Heat warnings and severe thunderstorm watch issued for parts of B.C.

"We're still expecting a hot day today on Wednesday and tomorrow, so it's going to be hot," said Louis Kohanyi, a meteorologist with Environment and Climate Change Canada.

"Even at night it's going to stay quite hot during the night as well."

Overnight lows of around 18 C are expected in the southern Interior.
