Barry's Response - When a kid's project becomes a family affair, that's when the magic happens. Thanks for your input patu.
While searching for meteorological data for the Calgary region ...well that makes it sound much more informative and enlightening than my the actual reason for my "lunch hour google search" - truth be know I recently moved to Calgary and will be travelling to Edmonton tomorrow (returning late Monday evening or early Tuesday morning) and as of now have procrastinated & put off swapping my all-season/summer tires for my winter tires; however am starting to revaluate my decision based on Monday's forecast - in particular the 70% POP).
What started out as a quick weather search has lead me throughout your website and wanted to thank you for the info you've shared and hope you continue in the future! In particular I find that the manner in which you write and post info is easy enough for everyone to understand but does not bore someone who has some knowledge in earth and enviro. sciences (as an aside I have Bachelor's degree in biology although have worked in the financial sector for the past 5 years). I just wanted to say thanks again & to let you know that your site has been bookmarked and will be visited again soon.
Barry's Response - Well thanks, Matt. Glad ya 'ppreciate it.
I like to see the depth of the snow and snow storm totals, no one ever reports storm totals or snow cover on the ground.
Barry's Response - I have a great map for that. It is produced by the Canadian government and includes the northern half of the US. It is updated daily at midnight (06 UTC) and can be found here.
I don't know if other countries produce such a map. Keep in mind the numbers represent flat field depths (such as those found at airports), and we all know drifts can be much deeper. This could lead to outstanding situations like the one in the picture above.
