As Canadians we talk about the weather relentlessly, I just talk about it a little more! I hope to provide useful information to my family, friends and all those who simply enjoy talking about the weather. While I try to include information of interest from all over North America, my primary region of concern is the St. Lawrence Valley of Quebec, Ontario, and New York, as well as our neighbouring regions. This Blog is dedicated to my late father for inspiring my interest in weather.

Sandy nearing Jersey Shore
Environment Canada track will take Sandy near Montreal this week.
UPDATE: At 3pm, powerful hurricane Sandy is nearing the Jersey Shore. Winds and rain as well as rising sea level and surge continue to pound the middle Atlantic. Winds are 90mph and movement is faster now, NW at 28mph. The barometric pressure is an incredible record low 940mb, the lowest for any storm this far north since the 1938 Long Island Express.
