About this book

Lightning, hail, floods, drought, tornadoes, blizzards and ice storms: Canada's climate can be extreme. Given the inevitable changes in our global climate, there is great interest in how our weather is being affected. Taking a non-scientific approach, this text describes weather phenomena and their spatial distribution in Canada, and gives an explanation for spatial trends.
