New weather radar near Regina ‘as good as it gets’
By Connor O’Donovan    Digital Broadcast Journalist  Global News   

News: New weather radar tech near Regina is 'as good as it gets'

WATCH: A newly installed weather radar system is a few weeks away from doubling forecasting capabilities in the Regina region.


A new weather radar system recently installed near Bethune, Sask., is poised to drastically improve forecasting in the region.

“It’s state-of-the-art-technology,” said Environment Canada senior meteorologist Terri Lang, “With respect to the Doppler capabilities we can now go twice as far as we did before.

    “We used to be able to see 120 kilometres. Now we can see 240.”

The Bethune radar is the latest installment of the Canadian Weather Radar Replacement Program. Announced in 2017 by the federal government, the program is set to upgrade weather radars across Canada over the coming years.

Initially, the program was priced as an $83 million infrastructure investment intended to upgrade 20 radars. The program contract, though, allows for expansion, and six more radars have since been added to the update list raising the program’s value to $107 million.

Lang said the new technology will provide better severe weather warnings across the country.

“We’re able to see a lot better into the cloud at a much farther distance. A lot of the tornado warnings that came out this summer were actually based on the radar itself, not on somebody seeing a tornado because we’re able to see the cloud rotating at different levels through the atmosphere.,” she said.

The Bethune radar will undergo testing over the next few weeks and is expected to be in operation by the end of September.

It’s the second and last radar in Saskatchewan to be slotted for an update. The other is fully operational and is located near Raddison.

Edmonton latest Canadian city to declare climate emergency
Digital Writers
theweathernetwork.com

Thursday, August 29th 2019, 4:43 pm - The city is the latest in Canada to make such a declaration.

The City of Edmonton has become the latest Canadian metropolis to declare a climate emergency.

Edmonton's city council voted 10-3 to make the declaration. That motion also included a directive for the city's administration to make quarterly reports to council on specific actions that are being taken, as well as future action, on the city's energy transition plan, which includes measures such as reducing city emissions and improving energy efficiency. Council also voted to toughen up the city's CO2 emissions targets.

“The debate over whether climate change is real is over. The debate is: what are we going to do about it?” Coun. Aaron Paquette, who introduced the motion, said in a release from the city.

With the declaration, the city joins Vancouver, Ottawa, Montreal and Halifax, as well as other smaller Canadian communities who have made similar declarations in recent years.

At a national level, the House of Commons made a national climate emergency declaration in June, which passed 186-83.

Most such declarations are based on the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, a 2016 pact among most of the countries in the world to attempt to cut emissions to a low enough level to limit future temperature increases to 1.5°C. In Edmonton, the city says it is trying to bring per-person emissions down to three tonnes per year by 2030, and to full carbon-neutrality by 2050 (the city says Edmontonians' current emissions are at the 20-tonne level).

Per capita, Canadian CO2 emissions are some of the highest in the world. Earlier in 2019, a federal government report found that Canada has been warming at twice the pace of the global average.

Edmonton’s summer had 54 days of rain
By Sarah Komadina    Reporter  Global News   

WATCH: Between June and August there has been 54 days with rain, making it the second rainiest summer on record.

Anyone living in central Alberta knows that many days this summer saw rain.

Environment and Climate Change Canada confirmed there were 54 days of rain between June and August in the Edmonton area. This is the second rainiest summer since 1996, where there were 59 days of rain.

“It’s just been the patterns that we’ve been experiencing, so we’ve been socked in a cooler air aloft and that has really fed systems to develop moisture,” said Sara Hoffman, an Environment and Climate Change Canada meteorologist, on Saturday.

Ottawa Weather
Expect a rainy start to Labour Day

40 mm of rain may fall in some areas south of the capital

It's looking like it'll be a wet start to the Labour Day holiday.

Environment Canada is calling for a few showers this morning in Ottawa, with more significant rainfall amounts along the St. Lawrence River and Lake Ontario in communities such as Kingston, Prince Edward County, Brockville and Morrisburg.

Between 20 and 40 millimetres of rain could fall in those areas by this morning, with a possibility of thunderstorms.

The rain should cease before noon, but it could return this evening.

The high sits at 23 C, but it'll feel more like the high 20s with the humidity.

Tonight should be partly cloudy with that possibility of more showers.

The overnight low is only 9 C.

As for back-to-work Tuesday, expect sunshine mixed with a few clouds and a high of around 22 C.

It could rain again Tuesday night and, over the weekend, just might fail to hit a high of at least 20 C for the first time since June 20 — the last day of spring.

What impacts will Dorian have on the Northeast?

By Brett Rathbun, AccuWeather meteorologist


While the northeastern United States will deal with non-tropical storm systems through midweek, at the very least, indirect impact from Dorian will continue to ramp up in coastal areas of the region.

The week will consist of a back-and-forth pattern of wet versus dry weather.

One non-tropical storm will continue to push through New England and the coastal mid-Atlantic into Monday night with drenching showers and thunderstorms.

As most people head back to work on Tuesday, high pressure will overspread the area and bring mostly sunny and dry weather conditions.

Highs on Tuesday will generally range from the lower 80s along the major cities to the 70s across the interior. AccuWeather RealFeel® Temperatures will be a notch higher, approaching the 90-degree mark in cities such as Philadelphia and New York City.

Hurricane Dorian set to race towards Atlantic Canada, brace for weekend impact
Tyler Hamilton
Meteorologist

Wednesday, September 4th 2019, 6:30 am - Damaging winds and torrential downpours will be the primary threats from Hurricane Dorian in Atlantic Canada

Even though Hurricane Dorian is churning more 2,500 kilometres away from Atlantic Canada, it is such a potent storm that it is looking likely it will have some impact on Atlantic Canada this weekend.

The storm weakened somewhat to Category 2 on Tuesday, while still bringing major devastation to the Bahamas. It is set to accelerate toward the northeast in the coming days, guided by a Bermuda high, that will take it on a path toward Atlantic Canada by the weekend, with the first effects expected late Friday.

A trough diving into Ontario on Friday has the potential to capture Dorian and pull the storm further east towards the Maritimes. If the timing of the trough changes and it misses any interaction with Hurricane Dorian, the system has a higher chance to impact Newfoundland and just brush by the Maritimes with little impact.

PHOTOS: Significant damage reported as Dorian hammers the Maritimes
Digital Writers
theweathernetwork.com

Saturday, September 7th 2019, 6:57 pm - Downed trees, storm surge, power outages, and a crane collapse were reported across the Maritimes, as Dorian hammered the region Saturday.

Widespread impacts were being felt across Atlantic Canada hours before Post-Tropical Cyclone Dorian made landfall near Sambro Creek, about 25 kilometres south of Halifax, Nova Scotia, on Saturday.

Powerful wind gusts exceeding 100 km/h and heavy rainfall were reaching areas that were hundreds of kilometres away from the eye of the storm ahead of landfall, and as of 7 p.m. EST on Saturday, nearly half-a-million customers in the Maritimes were without power.

The estimated maximum sustained winds at landfall were 155 km/h, with a central pressure of 958 mb, according to the National Hurricane Center.

The storm is expected to move across eastern Nova Scotia into the Gulf of St. Lawrence near Prince Edward Island Saturday night, with the center of the storm expected to pass near or over northern Newfoundland and eastern Labrador late Saturday or Sunday morning.

"A dangerous storm surge is likely in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, the Southwest Coast of Newfoundland, and Eastern Nova Scotia," said the weather agency in an advisory.

Dorian winds whip western Newfoundland, as storm tracks toward North Atlantic

Wind 'big issue of the day,' as storm moves out to sea by Sunday night

Post-tropical storm Dorian is expected to move through western Newfoundland and off into the North Atlantic Sunday night, after knocking trees into power lines and toppling fences Sunday afternoon and walloping the Maritime provinces the day before.

Hurricane warnings issued by Environment Canada have been downgraded to tropical storm warnings for much of the western and southwestern regions of Newfoundland, as well as the Northern Peninsula.

Doug Mercer, senior meteorologist with the Canadian Hurricane Centre, says Dorian is expected to have moved into the North Atlantic by Sunday night.

"This evening, around 9 or 10 p.m., it will have passed northeast of the Strait of Belle Isle and it will be heading out to sea," he said.

"But [winds] will still be fairly high, overnight will be when you really start to see things starting to drop off."

Mercer said winds will be back to normal ranges by Monday morning.

Newfoundland Power tweeted it had received multiple reports of trees being blown over and knocking into power lines along parts of the west coast.

Dorian remnants brought snow to parts of Atlantic Canada
Nathan Howes
Digital Writer

Monday, September 9th 2019, 3:20 pm - As remnants of Dorian moved east and merged with a trough, some light snow fell on parts of New Brunswick and Labrador

After Dorian made landfall as a hurricane-strength post-tropical storm in Nova Scotia Saturday and tracked east, it left behind more than a trail of damage and power outages -- it even dropped some light flurries in parts of New Brunswick and Labrador, later that evening and overnight Sunday, respectively.

What led to the dusting of the white stuff (no accumulations) was a trough merging with Dorian. As it transitioned into a post-tropical storm, the wind field expanded and the storm lost its tropical characteristics, Weather Network meteorologist Matt Grinter explained.

"The dropping temperatures is what led to the snow for north-central New Brunswick Saturday night and areas around Happy-Valley Goose Bay (in Labrador) Sunday overnight," said Grinter.

For Newfoundland, Dorian was mostly a wind-oriented event, with the heaviest rains remaining west of its track. The strongest wind gusts were reported over southwestern and western parts of the island. Wreckhouse reported a gust as high as 157 km/h while a gust of 143 km/h was recorded in Green Island-Fortune Bay.

"There were many reports of uprooted trees, general wind damage and power outages," Environment Canada said in its weather summary.

Prairies: Significant weather whiplash crams all seasons into one
Digital Writers
theweathernetwork.com

Wednesday, September 11th 2019, 10:30 am - From tornadoes to snow to a fall-like rain and then mid-summer like heat. This weather whiplash across the Prairies will continue well into next week

After a swath of severe weather bubbled up across parts of Alberta on Tuesday, we look ahead to a potent Colorado Low that will bring a widespread rain across the Prairies on Thursday. Things will also be feeling a lot more fall-like as tumbling temperatures remain below seasonal through the week's end. More on the timing of the next moisture packed system, plus a look at if this week's weather signals a free fall right into autumn, below.

WEATHER HIGHLIGHTS:
    Temperatures below seasonal to start the week, threat for alpine snow for the Rockies
    Colorado low delivers widespread rain for southern Saskatchewan and Manitoba on Thursday with reinforcing shot of chilly weather behind the system

Ontario's 9th tornado of the year confirmed ahead of next strong storm risk
Digital Writers
theweathernetwork.com

Friday, September 13th 2019, 6:30 am - Environment Canada has confirmed damage from a tornado and a downburst in Wednesday's storms.

The brief surge of hot and humid weather that flooded southern Ontario on Wednesday was the perfect fuel for numerous thunderstorms during the late afternoon and evening hours.

After damage surveys conducted by the Northern Tornadoes Project on Thursday, Environment Canada confirmed that a tornado did indeed touch down Wednesday evening southeast of Petrolia, in southwestern Ontario. The survey team also confirmed damage related to a downburst, also near Petrolia.

SEE ALSO: Tornado potential brewing again for Friday

The tornado has been given a preliminary rating of EF-1, with maximum winds of 140 km/h. This is the 9th confirmed tornado for the year in Ontario.

B.C.'s South Coast set for nearly a month's worth of rain this weekend

Downpour expected to pick up late Friday, continue through Sunday night

While September is usually a relatively dry denouement to summer on B.C.'s South Coast, this weekend is set to be an abrupt introduction to the rainy fall season.

Environment Canada said the region is set to see about a month's worth of rain by Sunday.

A downpour Thursday dropped 20-30 millimetres, with another 10-15 millimetres expected Friday night. Another 15-25 more millimetres are in the forecast for Saturday.

That's a total of up to 70 millimetres — well over the normal amount of 51 millimetres for the entire month of September.

"I think it's safe to say that summer is officially over," said Environment Canada meteorologist Matt MacDonald. "Given these back-to back systems, we will be reaching our normal rainfall for the month in just three or four days."

The agency said the soggy weather systems are being churned up in the northeastern Pacific, hitting B.C.'s north and central coasts before sliding down to the South Coast. Some of the rain will reach the B.C. Interior as well, MacDonald said.

A pause between the systems on Friday and Saturday means flooding isn't a concern as of noon on Friday, MacDonald said.

"Just keep that umbrella and those rubber boots handy," he added.

The official first day of fall is Sept. 23.

Airshow London cancels Friday events due to severe weather

A severe thunderstorm watch has been issued for London and the surrounding area

The threat of severe thunderstorms has grounded the launch of the 4th annual Airshow London, which was set to start at 4 p.m. Friday.

Environment Canada issued a severe thunderstorm watch for London, Parkhill, Strathroy, Komoka and Middlesex County at 1:30 p.m. Friday, warning of winds gusting up to 100 km/h and heavy rainfall. The national weather service also warns the storms have the potential to produce tornadoes.

Organizers of Airshow London cancelled events scheduled from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. in full.

"Safety is the number one priority for spectators, volunteers and performers and even though it is a disappointing decision to make, it is the correct one," Airshow London said in a statement.

Events planned for Saturday and Sunday will go ahead as planned, with the forecast calling for sunny skies.

Ticket holders for Friday's events will be admitted for entry on Saturday or Sunday. Friday's photo pit passes will also be honoured on Saturday or Sunday.

Airshow London is one of Canada's premiere aviation spectacles, featuring dynamic air performances including planes, jets and parachutes. The non-profit organization supports the Children's Hospital Foundation and several veterans' charities.

Let's just rename Ottawa the 'Sunshine City'

By the end of this week, we may all have forgotten what clouds are

Do you like the thought of cloudless skies stretching for miles? The glow of a late summer sunset gently kissing a Gatineau Park lake?

Then this is the weather forecast for you, my sunglasses-sporting friend.

Environment Canada is calling for the skies to clear today, with a daytime high in the low 20s — just a bit above normal for this time of year .
The average temperature, by the way, is no longer in the 20s as of Saturday. It'll be May before we get back there.

We should have clear skies tonight, with a low in the single digits, and clear skies as far as Ottawa's seven day forecast can see.

Unlike sunny summer forecasts, the UV index should only be moderate.

There are slight differences in the Kingston and Pembroke areas: it could be cloudy there on Sunday and there, the UV index is still at 6 or high today and tomorrow.

Get outside and enjoy! It's the last full week of summer, with autumn coming early next Monday morning.

'Summer 2.0' heat and humidity on the way for much of Canada
Digital Writers
theweathernetwork.com

Monday, September 16th 2019, 8:00 pm - Now loading for the eastern half of Canada.

Autumn is right on our doorstep, but we can't count summer out just yet.

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

A ridge of high pressure starting to build across the southern United States will be one of the major drivers for Canadian weather in the week ahead, and that means surging temperatures -- and the humidity that goes with them -- are about to make a play north of the border.
WATCH BELOW: TRACKING THE SUMMER SURGE

With the peak of the ridge planted over the eastern Prairies to start the work-week, temperatures across southern Manitoba will make some major strides for the early part of the week. Highs edging into the low 30s for Winnipeg will be a nearly 20-degree jump from the middle of last week when afternoon temperatures only barely crept into the double digits.

Midweek will see the ridge edge over the Great Lakes, giving temperatures across northern Ontario a boost -- a big one. Temperatures stand to threaten some records for the day across parts of northeastern Ontario on Wednesday. The average high in Moosonee, for example, is around 16ºC, and the record for September 18 -- set in 2003 -- is 28.5ºC.

For the latter half of the week, a low pressure system crossing the Prairies and moving into northern Ontario may put a brief damper on the ridge's progress, but it's hard to keep a good southern ridge down at this time of the year, when the Gulf of Mexico is at its warmest and provides ample fuel for these surges of heat.

Heading into the end of the week and the weekend, it's likely we'll see the warmth (and humidity) rebound over southern Ontario and Quebec. And by the time we reach the last weekend of summer, it should be the Maritimes turn for some above-average highs.
