CANWARN Training

May 15th, 2017 at 7:00pm

Peterborough Lawn Bowling Club, 577 McDonnel St. Peterborough.

Each spring, I reiterate the importance of the role that CANWARN spotters play in Environment and Climate Change Canada’s severe weather watch and warning program. During the training, we have also made mention of the importance of getting reports for winter-time severe weather. I am happy to say, after reviewing CANWARN reports over the last few months, that the Weather Centre received a number of timely and useful winter reports from CANWARN members. These reports included ones about dense fog, the occurrence of freezing rain and the provision of snowfall accumulations. For those interested in attending one of the following sessions, please RSVP to ec.canalerteontario-canwarnontario.ec@canada.ca with the session to intend to take.

Listen to Ward Kennedy, the coordinator of Canwarn for south central Ontario on CBC radio.
