Those who suffer from smoking, slaughtering in the heat, or cursing the snow in the early or summer, can apologize for asking what happened to the weather in 2018.
Environment Canada's senior climate scientist, David Philips, said, "It was almost a smorgasbord that could be all wrong." "I do not think there was anything missing."
Phillips said this year was Canada's top weather story.
Delayed early in the spring in the cold spring. But once he got warmed up, Sparks did not take a long time to strike.
There were more than 250,000 lightning strikes in southern British Columbia between April and August. One day, there were only 20,000.
As a result, there is a smoke of smokeless smoke from coastal shores on a vast forest, which can be traced back to Europe as far away as possible.
Cities in Alberta may be darker.
478 hours of smoke and smoking in Calgary were recorded in Calgary. A smoking spell lasted about six days. Normal count in the whole summer is 12 hours.
There was only 230 hours of smoke compared to Edmonton, but it was twice as common as usual.
When factors including wildlife and urban sprawl influence wild influences, Phillips said that it is in the weather.
"It's too dry, too hot, too long."
Speaking warmly, Canada took part in a global warming wave, which consisted of four continents.
It's Philips No. There was 2 story.
"It's a big country, Canada, and you often do not see people experiencing weather like Bonavista (Newfoundland) from Vancouver Island, but this year we saw it with record temperatures."
Halifax broke the record with 18 straight days from 1876, which reached at least 25 c.
In Quebec, 93 people died due to heat-related reasons.
Ottawa set records for heat and humidity on July 1, and the terms Canada Day presence in 6,000 was expected at 20,000.
Moose Joe in August, Sask., Reached 42.3 C in a day.
It was also dry, especially on Preers where half a normal precipitation of the crop fell between April and August.
Philips said that the regina has never had two dry years in 131 years. They include droughts in the Great Depression.
Dry conditions have also damaged livestock producers. Grass harvesting in some areas was generally one to seven in common, much less than the winter diet requirement.
But it was not all smoking and heat. Phillips said that the story of number 3 was the extinction of spring and fall.
Winters cared for summer, followed by the winter in the summer, Phillips said that it is called "weather intensity".
"(That is) the transition does not exist almost in the season."
In some places, two-meter deep land is kept in the long, cold spring ice, which means the crop year starts for farmers. Then, in August, the fields were ready and with good start of harvest, the hope was lost in unprecedented snow.
The crop was spread over more than $ 4 billion in crop under snowfall.
In Edmonton, September was nearly seven degrees colder than usual. Within a month the city received more than 38 centimeters of snow, where the standard is one.
Calgary suffered pain in October when the 38-centimeter dump for two days broke a record of 138 years.
Like most climatologists, Phillips is guarded against blaming any weather event for climate change, but he said that despite the long, normal winter, Canada was again slightly warmer than usual – in the upper row 22 years of normal temperature .
He also pointed out that the environmental scientists of Canada say that since 2015, the risk of western fire has doubled due to human-induced warming and it can be up to six times higher.
"Scientists have shown in such a way that these things are directly related to human activity," he said.
Philips is leading the top 10 weather lists for 23 years. For some years, she admits, there was not much to talk about.
"There were not many things after that. The summers were hot, the winter was cold.
"In 23 years, it has changed," he said.
"Weather is strange and wild and useless and has got currency. The climate has changed."
