Environment Canada funding to help keep ahead of the storm

More on the recent announcement by Environment Canada that they would be investing money to upgrade their sensor systems.

“Environment Canada is in the process of identifying the sites to be upgraded and new sites to be established based upon requirements for severe weather information, warnings and forecasts for safety,” Environment Canada said in response to questions.

“The selection of existing stations to be modernized will be largely based upon age of the equipment, new technologies available, existing distribution of stations and user requirements. We are still in the process of identifying priority locations.
