CBC Climate Dashboard

“The Climate Dashboard has new features. Click on the layers icon on the globe to see wildfire smoke and active fires. Air quality is also now available for many locations across Canada…The data for the Climate Dashboard comes from the Meteorological Service of Canada (MSC). We display weather information for 485 locations in real time. While the MSC has data available for more than 800 locations, we’ve excluded locations with less than 80 per cent of the data for the 1981-2010 period. This is the timeframe used to compute historical averages. Locations without historical records before 1981 have also been excluded.”

The site is coded and maintained by Dr. Sean Birkel through support from the Climate Change Institute at the University of Maine. Support has also been provided by the National Science Foundation, the Russell Grinnell Memorial Trust, and the Comer Family Foundation. On this site you can access climate information using interfaces for reanalysis and historical station data. Maps, timeseries, and correlation analyses can be plotted for gridded models. Station data and model timeseries can be exported in CSV format for use in spreadsheet software. Climate is average weather, and so Climate Reanalyzer also provides access to weather forecast models. Get a 10-day forecast timeseries for your location by using the placename search at the top-right of every page. Forecast maps from global and regional models are also available. These maps can be animated. The most visited page on the site is Today’s Summary, which features several weather variables, including temperature departure for the current day relative to a recent climate baseline. Climate Reanalyzer is continually being improved and expanded. Check our Facebook page for updates.”
