Now THIS is the kind of weather data we like to see!
Courtesy of @YOW_weather. But WHO is the man behind this twitter account???
Tim and I found out! Meet Rolf Campbell – unofficial Ottawa weather historian!
Things we learned:
As of Sept 21st, we’ve now had 12 days without rain – last time we had a span this long with no rain was 7 years ago, in 2010. (if it continues like this, this could be longest span we’ve had without rain in over 20 years – since 1995!)
Spring rainfall was statistically a 1000 year event – so rare in terms of how much we got from March 22nd-June 21st! And in the summer, we were just half a centimetre away from breaking the all-time record for summer rainfall.
What to expect this winter – looks to be typical. Spring may be a little warmer than normal. (but don’t hold him to it!)
Sept 23rd – forecast is sunny and 30. This is very unusual! Last time we had a temp that high this late in September was in 1920!!!
Fingers crossed the Fall and Winter ahead will be kind!
