Re: Graphs and Data

^ I missed that discussion in the thread, but I take it that someone has noticed 4 of the top 30 days occurred in Nov-Dec 1875, including 2 of the top 5? Of course, we're talking New West, which might be a lot snowier than YVR? EDIT: Your table is wrong. You are right for November 1875, but the Dece...

Re: 2017 Year in Review

Here's an Okanagan summary. I'm using the Penticton airport because it's pretty much the only weather station left in the Okanagan that reports with any reliability. The rest are all automated, and they suck with precipitation by glitching often. For example, the Vernon station didn't record any pre...

Funny, Abbotsford is the hottest place in Canada right now, but boy the temperature tank going east.

YXX = 11.3C
Agassiz = 5.3C

Not 100% or anything, but after 4 days in bed, I free great. Do NOT get the flu this year!

As for the weather, looks like seasonal for a next week. Rain for you guys, and a chance of rain and snow for me.

Re: January 2018 Current Conditions and Forecasts

At YVR there have been 5 seasons that saw less than 10 cm of snow total throughout the winter during the past 25 years. 4 out of those 5 happened during the past 8 years. I certainly don't like the trend for snow at sea level here. LOL, you are cherrypicking the data by pretending this has never ha...

Not even in the top 10! WOW!!! 1. Vancouver International Airport (YVR) = 3,505 metres (11,499 ft) [2nd long...

Re: Daily And Monthly Precipitation Totals 2018

My weather station is on a pole in the back yard (it's a power pole I use for the clothes line). Anyway, the problem is that under the right conditions the snow builds up at the top of the pole, and then when we get a warm spell, it falls off into the weather station. So yesterday I "recorded&q...
