Canadian Prairies still -27 C with NO spring in sight

Snowfall warning for southern Alberta calls for up to 8 inches (20 cm) of the white stuff.

2 Apr 2018 – With lows reaching -27 C (-16.6F) with the wind chill today in parts of Saskatchewan and Manitoba, Environment Canada’s senior climatologist says he’s surprised how long winter is lasting on the Prairies.

And even though the cold temperatures could persist through the end of April, David Phillips is calling it a “cold snap.”

  1. I am not a fan of the X-Files but their phrase “the truth is out there” is applicable to climate change. The web site http://www.solen.info/solar/ has historical sunspot counts as well as well as F-10.7 solar flux, the Wolf number and other information. The United states Government website http://www.ospo.noaa.gov/Products/ocean/sst/anomaly/ gives ocean temperature anomaly charts where areas of the ocean are having the warm tops blown away by the wind can be seen.

  2. David Phillips is a known global warming believer.
    What do you expect from a government-funded climatologist.

  3. “Environment Canada’s senior climatologist says he’s surprised how long winter is lasting on the Prairies.” Surprised?? If David Phillips had actually done his job, he would have known colder times are ahead, and not just short-term cold.
