How does seasonal forecasting work in Canada? Will Fall River Nova Scotia Get Good Weather And Seasonal Temperature's This Fall

Barry's Response - Adam, Go to the Environment Canada seasonal forecast index page at and have a look at the prediction map.

You can see what EC thinks will happen until September. Since I don't know where Fall River is, I'll let you interpret the map. Scroll down to the second map. The dark grey area in Fall River amounts to "why are you asking us, we don't know".

They're honest about it, at least.

Look at the next column of links on that first page for the next three months. You'll only get a result from one of those three rows. It depends on when you try it. If you have to, try them all to see which one gives you a (probably bogus) result.

Long-range weather forecasts can be an excellent source of inspiration for developing an interest in meteorology.

Here's how they can spark curiosity:

- Weather patterns: Long-range forecasts provide insights into larger-scale weather patterns and atmospheric conditions that affect weather over time. You can start recognizing patterns by studying these forecasts, like ocean currents, jet streams, and atmospheric oscillations. As a result, you'll have a better understanding of meteorology.

- Individuals, communities, and industries can prepare for upcoming weather conditions with long-range forecasts. If you can interpret and analyze these
forecasts, you'll be able to make informed decisions, whether you're planning outdoor activities, scheduling agricultural operations, or adjusting travel plans. We appreciate the impact meteorology has on our day-to-day lives when we can anticipate and adapt to changing weather.

- Weather forecasting is a specialized field within meteorology. Long-range forecasts can spark an interest in becoming a meteorologist, climatologist, or environmental scientist. Understanding long-term weather trends, contributing to weather prediction models, and conducting research can be highly motivating.

- Meteorology is closely connected to natural phenomena like hurricanes, monsoons, and seasonal weather patterns. Forecasts often highlight these big events, so you can dig deeper into their causes and effects. Nature's forces can inspire wonder and awe when you understand the science behind them.

- Long-range forecasts can shed light on climate change and its potential impact on weather. You can figure out how our climate is changing by observing long-term trends and anomalies. Knowing this can inspire a desire to learn more about climate science, sustainability, and the role meteorologists play in studying and mitigating climate change.

Anyway, good luck.

Good Site, Bad first page
by: Evaroo

My first impression of this site after reading the first page was "What exactly is this site for?" It could use an introductory explanation on the home page. Long term (ie: seasonal) weather outlook pages are an interesting idea, and it would be great to have a site for every region.
I would very much like to explore more of this site in order to learn about pollution, weather trends, and global warming in Canada.

From Barry - People could plan their activities around the weather on such a site. Businesses can plan their operations accordingly and farmers can better prepare for climate-related events. That's part of the reason I created it. Thanks for the feedback, E.

Lovely web site
by: Anonymous

Very interesting website especially with an ongoing climate problems going in the world today. Will be definitely visiting some more in the future.

From Barry - It's all about spreading awareness and educating the public about climate change. Here you might find articles, videos, and other educational materials to help people understand the severity of the situation. We'll also give you tips on how to live a more sustainable life.

My goal is to create a website that promotes sustainable living and educates people about climate change. My goal is to create a platform where people can share ideas and take action.

Watch it grow with me...
