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.
Temperature Extremes: Over the period since the 1950s, 6 of Gimli’s 10 hottest years have occurred in the two decades since 1990. In contrast, just 2 of the airport’s 10 coldest years happened in the same timespan.
Long-Term Consequences: For the moment Gimli is not experiencing detectable short-term warming, and the 10-year average tempearuter in 2002-2011 is the same as it was during the 1980s.
