First, my name is alessandra batello and today, in this video we’ll be looking at all the weather going forward for the day across canada and to do that we’re over here adventuresguide.com, which is a freely available weather application. You can find it linked down below in the video description, along with other freely available weather websites, so we’re going to start over. On our left hand, side that’s, our list of various weather features we’ll be covering and, on the right hand, side is the color coded meter that corresponds to all the different colors on the map. Currently we are looking at the temperature map, so we’ll start with that. One at the top of the list over in the east coast and then move our way to the west, so temperatures definitely dropping there throughout much of the east. We’Ve got temperatures down to around five to six degrees in newfoundland, labrador and nova scotia, starting to warm up warm up now with the sun rising over quebec, getting around 10 degrees there. But you do have patches up in the north a little cooler and down into southern quebec in ontario temperatures already at 17 18 degrees gon na be definitely a bit of a decrease in temperatures there. So much more pleasant and cooler. Today, most of those warmer temperatures further to the south, the winds have shifted and are blowing more in an easterly direction, rather than so much north, so not carrying as much of that warmer temperatures and pollution from just south over into ontario, very, very cool there.
At the center of a high pressure system brought down a lot of cold air from the north and you’ve got around zero degrees there on the bay of lake victoria on the coastline and then interior of ontario around up to 5 degrees moving over to the west. Now, on the border with manitoba, getting into the 12 to 13 degree range in the northwest, all the way up to 22 degrees there, and this is our heat dome. That will be seeing some very high temperatures later on today, so getting into the high 30s low 40s across northern manitoba, definitely right there in northern saskatchewan, already at 27 degrees there and then throughout alberta down into southern bc. So some high 20 degree temperatures all in this region there and then over in central and northern bc, around 10 to 12 degrees. There, southern northwest territory very warm as well already 20 degrees there and definitely see some of those warmer airs. Getting traveled or traveled had traveled up recently into western none of it and northern northwest territory, but the winds have shifted there as well, now they’re getting pulled down into a low pressure, actually a couple low pressure systems that we’ll take a look at in just a Moment so pulling in some cooler air or pulling back down that warmer air into a centralized portion there all right now, moving into our precipitation, we’ll go ahead and start over in the east. We’Ve got some pretty stormy weather off the coast of southern quebec and right there through nova scotia into portions of northern new brunswick values of around 1 to 3 meter, millimeters per second a three hour period and then so it’s very stormy.
This is moving in an easterly direction across nova scotia going to be some pretty high winds there with some substantial rain as well. So if you’d like to find out more about that, you can check out the severe weather advisory link down below, which is also another freely available website or check out your local weather as well in southern quebec. You’Ve got a patch of rain there about four to five millimeters and then to the west of montreal, getting a little patch of thunderstorms, four to nine millimeters of rain there, and then we’ve got some pretty substantial, strong heavy rain in northwestern alberta, getting over 30 millimeters Per hour there per three hour period, very heavy rain, some faster moving air as well, lighter rain over here into the northeast and the southern portions of northwest territory. Three to four millimeters of rain. There, northern bc little patch getting around seven to eight as well. So a forming newly forming low pressure system, storm system. There definitely going to be some very, very heavy rain right now in northwestern alberta, and this is likely just going to be traveling east right across the top of that territory. Right along the border of northwest territory into saskatchewan throughout the next day or two. So watch out for that, if you’d like to know more severe weather advisory link is down below in the description all right checking out the satellite view now go ahead and zoom back a little bit.
So we can see that cloud coverage over quebec, so light cloud coverage, they’re clearing out pretty quickly and then you’ve got cloud covers throughout southern newfoundland, the labrador over there in eastern quebec, down into nova scotia. That is our storm system, going to be very overcast there. For most of the day but we’ll be start seeing some sunny skies there in southern quebec as that moves over to the east, a little bit of cloud covers there on the border with ontario, but pretty clear, not not anything too thick at this time. So a lot of that sun is going to be evaporating much of that cloud coverage bringing in some very bright days. Then you start getting some very clear and blue skies across western and northern ontario into manitoba, saskatchewan and most of alberta, but we do have a big system right there with all that heavy rain up in the northwest of alberta. So this is definitely a very strong storm system. Moving across that portion of northwestern canada, all right checking out our wind gusts now to see how everything is moving and how quickly down the west coast. You’Ve got values of about 60 kilometers per hour there moving off the bc coast, all the way up to 70. In certain areas and then flowing into our low pressure there in northwestern alberta at around 40 to 60 kilometers per hour, so getting some very gusty areas in there and then moving through northern saskatchewan and on manitoba about 40 kilometers per hour.
As they run up into the low pressure there in southern none of it and then off the coast of new brunswick, coming in at about 50 to 60 kilometers per hour, so very, very fast, stormy weather there in northern new brunswick will be heading out pretty quickly. Over towards nova scotia later today, all right checking out our air pressure. We’Ll go ahead and zoom out for this one and get a nice view of the larger systems at play across canada. So we’ve got the big high pressure there still off the coast, sending those winds right down the british columbia coast and then you’ve got the low pressure pulling in some cooler air from the north, as well as all that warm very, very hot air. Over in central canada and you’ve got a low another low pressure right there in southern nunavet doing pretty much the exact same thing just a little to the northeast. Then we’ve got our big high pressure that came down from the north and brought in all that cool air to northern quebec and ontario, and then the low pressure forming just between it and a high pressure here into the mid atlantic that’s sending up some of that Warmer air right along the eastern coast of the united states and mixing in with all that very moist cooler air that came down from northern quebec into that low pressure there off the coast of new brunswick. All right. Going back in to take a look at our thunderstorm, starting with our cape, you got a little bit right here and over here in southern northwest territory – 900 joules per kilogram.
There now our wind shear, produced generally between the different pressure systems, where the winds are interacting and coming together. You’Ve got 35 meters per second there, as it wraps up from the high pressure in between it and the low pressure there in none of it and same thing between that low pressure and the other low pressure there in northwestern alberta, values getting up to 40 meters Per second in those areas, next is our cin connective. Inhibition can be a great indicator of some more extreme weather values, getting down to negative 500 in southern bc and then over there in western alberta, all the way down to negative 1 000 joules per kilogram. So very very low level. Our chart goes down to negative 500, and this is our pretty close to where our storm system is there. So watch out for some other things indicating us very strong weather in southern northwest territory: negative 500 joules per kilogram there. Next is our lifted index showing where all that warmer air is concentrated all throughout central canada over into the western territories as well still there in bc and not as much as it had been in southern quebec and ontario and then, lastly, for thunderstorms, helicity. Taking a look at the potential for vortices of air to be forming in the atmosphere, so different temperatures and directions circulating around each other. You got some fairly high values there in northern manitoba up to 500 meters squared per second squared.
There is a rush very quickly. Moving very fast through that northern portion of the territory into none of it and then you’ve got some very high levels over here, 500 to 600 meters square per second squared in north western alberta. So highly recommend checking out your local area. If you’re in this local weather, if you’re in this area or if you know someone in this area, this is a very strong system, fast, moving wind with some very, very heavy rain. All right now, our humidity starting over here in the british columbia coast you’ve got a 90 to 100 there all throughout the rest of bc, about a hundred percent drying off in the southern portion, down to 40 30 percent, even as well as throughout southern and central Manitoba values around 40, getting up to our system, storm system, there, 90 to 100 there, northern saskatchewan 40 percent central saskatchewan 70 down to 60 to 70 there, all throughout manitoba, on average 50 percent and throughout ontario you’ve got around 90 percent on average and then southern Quebec and 90 percent there, and about 90 80 to 90 throughout newfoundland, the labrador, nova, scotia and new brunswick a little drier there in northern quebec as well, 70 to 60 percent. There all right and checking out here in southern none of it that’s about 80 percent. There over the the northwest territory about 70 to 90 percent and yukon about 70 percent there all right. Moving on to our waves off the bc coast, you’ve got one and a half meter waves up in the northern portion, getting down to the central and southern portion.
Two and a half meter waves with that picking up of the wind and then around lake victoria you’ve got around one and a half off the nunavut coast and about half a meter everywhere else and then there in northern quebec point three northern newfoundland labrador point zero Point five up to one meter down in the south coming into nova scotia coming into new brunswick at about two meters per wave, so very fast, moving wind. There snow coverage in canada just over there in the mountains of bc and then up there in none of it, snowfall in the last five hours, no snowfall so moving into our air quality. Starting with the pm 2.5. The very small and fine particulates of pollution you’ve got a patch right there in southwestern northwest territory at about 100 to 300, even 400, almost 500 micrograms per cubic meter there, so very, very high. Our chart goes up to 200, so it definitely looks like something is burning, we’ll find out for sure in just a little bit, values in alberta and saskatchewan around two to four micrograms per cubic meter. Next, taking a look at the pm10 larger particulates, so dust and sand would fall into this category as well as other elements so right there in northwest territory 400 to 500 micrograms per cubic meter about 50 over there in none of it and next our nitrogen dioxide. Even some nitrogen dioxide burning there in southwestern northwest territory, so 66 micrograms per cubic meter even 70.
There, southern alberta and saskatchewan you’ve got about one to two everywhere else in canada. Looking really good at zero sulfur dioxide produced by manufacturing activity, as well as mining activity and geologic activity, central alberta and saskatchewan, two to four micrograms. There everywhere else at zero ozone levels, you have a little bit higher ozone levels. They are still low to moderate 70. To 80 micrograms per cubic meter in southern saskatchewan and throughout eastern and alberta, getting up to almost 100 micrograms per cubic meter there right in central alberta and our dust and sand so we’ll see if that’s dust and sand in northwest territory. No, it is not so very, very likely a fire and then we’ve got a lot of very dry area blowing across this portion of none of it to the northeast and then, lastly, are carbon monoxide produced by manufacturing activity as well as larger fire. So there we go big fire in southwestern portion of northwest territory, getting over 2 200 parts per billion by volume, so almost to the very top of our chart, which is goes up to 2500 very, very hazardous toxic air, including all the other particulates, nitrogen dioxide pm. 2.5 and pm10 added into this, this is a very poor poor air quality there. If you’d like to know more about the fires, there is also a link for that down below in the video description for the fires in canada throughout canada. Today, on average, around 120 ppb, which is very good, definitely below the global average of 140 or so and then lastly, a nice summary report, you can take a look at this one very quickly get a summary of all the different elements that we just looked at For air quality all into one map, so this one is showing values up to 385 aqi.
The top of our chart goes up to 400, so that is the worst almost the worst quality that they measure for so very, very toxic air there with that fire and higher values in eastern alberta, as well as western and southwestern saskatchewan 35 aqi. There rest of canada around 10 to 15 on average, all right everybody, so that is our weather for today in canada. Thank you very much for watching.
