Web Site Provides Climate Information for Alberta, Canada

A new Web site provides 60+ years’ worth of climate data for Alberta, Canada. Climate, not weather: “Weather is the atmospheric condition that can be observed and measured at a location, such as temperature, precipitation, wind or sunshine, while climate is the long-term statistics of weather, typically a 30-year average of weather.” And there’s your vocabulary for the day. Also: “The information on six climate indices is now available to the public through the Alberta Climate Records website. The measures include growing season, heat waves, days over 25 C, frost days, full days below 0 C, and days below -25 C.”
