Current Conditions

 

weathOur Twitter Feed at the page bottom provides up to the minute mini-reports on ice out, storms, high flows, visibility, hatches, etc.

Western Canada Radar – Shows what active weather is coming/going. Very useful for tracking where a thunderstorm has rolled through the previous 3 hrs as it can indicate severe water temperature swings or a rise of stream flow or reduced water visibility.
Alberta Basins Water Flow Report – Shows the flow rates of our streams and rivers during summer and (if chosen in the drop down menu) the mountain snowpack per drainage. As storms roll through during summer in various reaches of a watershed, it’s a good idea to allow 6 or 7 hrs for its impact to show at the station.
Alberta Weather Warnings – A map that shows what warnings are in place across Alberta.
Environment Canada – Alberta Weather Forecasts
The Weather Network – Alberta Weather Forecasts
Jet Stream Map –  Shows the general trend in our weather fronts. Generally: a jet stream over your location will track a series of low pressure fronts and keep temperatures moderate and bring instability and precipitation. A jet stream to your north will bring generally warmer weather and sunny skies while a jet stream to your south likely means an Arctic High is drawing stable, dry, sunnier – albeit cooler – weather from the north.
