Check out Environment Canada's Alberta Map for weather forecasts

You're in Alberta soon so you need some quick weather info.

This Alberta map gives you all the Alberta Canada weather you need.  What do you do with this data?  Click on the map below, then click any community on the Environment Canada Alberta weather page, OR select your town from the lower box.  You can pick another province in the upper box.

There's a current temperature and other info on each city-page, plus forecasts for the next five days.  The top of the page will show current weather warnings in red.  If you have cable or satellite, you can always tune into the Weather Network for their forecasts, usually with video. TWN's forecasts are similar to Environment Canada's, but not identical.

No computer handy, but an ol' telephone or a radio...

How about trying something new?

There are also Emergency Public Warning Systems for weather and other hazards.  Disasters like floods, fires, toxic spills, contamination, or terrorism.

It's all part of Canada Weatheradio, a nationwide radio network that provides weather information and alerts.  Environment and Climate Change Canada runs the network, which broadcasts weather information 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on VHF-FM radio frequencies.

With Canada Weatheradio, Canadians can stay up-to-date on weather conditions, forecasts, and warnings in real-time. Regular weather reports and severe weather alerts like tornadoes, thunderstorms, and blizzards are broadcast through the system.

Most electronics stores sell a receiver that can receive Weatheradio broadcasts. The receivers are programmed to hear the VHF-FM frequencies used by Canada Weatheradio, and they have a built-in alarm that alerts you when there's severe weather.

Newer smartphones have built-in Weatheradio capabilities that can be activated via a downloadable app in addition to standalone receivers. Newer smartphones have built-in Weatheradio capabilities that can be activated via a downloadable app in addition to standalone receivers. Users can get real-time weather alerts and updates directly on their phones.

Overall, Canada Weatheradio helps Canadians stay safe during severe weather events by keeping them informed about changing weather conditions.

Have you ever heard of an Alberta Clipper

It may deposit moderate to great amounts of snow as far away as the Eastern Seaboard, despite originating somewhere on the Alberta map.  After it crosses the BC mountains, one of these storms usually starts off as a fresh descendant of an aging Pacific storm.  These kinds of systems are characterized by their speed, wind speeds, and sudden temperature drops.  Usually, it's gone  before it drops any rain or snow in Alberta.

Alberta and weather are almost synonymous.  Check out this Environment Canada article if you care about air quality in Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba.
