Regional Weather Network in the BC Peace

Did you know that you can access weather data for 20 different areas in the BC Peace? Check it out on this website by selecting the links tab above & then the link with Local Weather Stations or by clicking on this local weather link here.

This network of weather stations throughout the BC Peace provide information on a daily or hourly basis including temperature, humidity, wind direction, wind speed, wind chill and rainfall.

During a recent workshop in Kamloops hosted by ACARN (Agricultural Climate Adaptation Research Network) Julie Robinson discovered that this information is not only beneficial for us locally, but also well regarded and well used in other research studies being conducted in other parts of the province.
