The Canadian Climate Survey is tracking historical and average temperatures in cities and towns across the country, as part of an effort to put something of a local face on global climate change.
Brandon (Blended Dataset)
Temperature Extremes: Over the period since the 1950s, 5 of Brandon Airport’s 10 hottest years have occurred in the two decades since 1990. In contrast, just 1 of the airport’s coldest years has happened in the same timespan — 1996, when the average temperature was -0.4 ˚C, the airport’s coldest year on record.
Long-Term Consequences: For the moment Brandon is not experiencing detectable short-term warming. Average annual temperatures have actually declined 0.3 ˚C between the 1980s and the period from 2002-2011.
