YOU GIVE THE WEATHER OF THE 10 PROVINCIAL CAPITALS AND YELLOWNIFE ... BUT YOU TOTALLY NEGLEC IQUALUIT,
YOU ARE INSULTING QUITE A FEW PEAPLEBarry's Response
- I'm not sure what weather site you are using at the moment, Lionel, but the city name is spelled Iqaluit. Try that and see if you have more success finding it.
Iqaluit is the capitol of Nunavut, and is on Baffin Island, the largest Arctic island. A little over 6000 people live there, older Canadians may still know the community by its previous name, Frobisher Bay. It is cold throughout the Arctic with only a couple frost-free months in a typical year and permafrost, so no tall trees get a chance to grow there.
Environment Canada, however, does provide latest observations and a 5-day forecast for Iqaluit, NU. See it at http://www.weatheroffice.gc.ca/city/pages/nu-21_metric_e.html - Although the place is quite isolated, it does deserve the same federal services as any other. They have an airport, after all.
The graphs on this page give an apt description of the more information now.
