World just experienced its hottest January on record: EU climate agency

"...The El Nino phenomenon began to weaken last month, and scientists have indicated it could shift to the cooler La Nina counterpart later this year. Still, average global sea surface temperatures last month were the highest for any January on record. Countries agreed in the 2015 Paris Agreement to try to prevent global warming surpassing 1..."


New UN weather agency chief says rate of global warming is speeding up

"...Slow efforts to curb climate change is not about diplomacy, I think it's about power and economy, Saulo said during a break at the American Meteorological Society's meeting in Baltimore. We are lagging behind our objectives because of our interests economic interests that are well beyond what our common sense, our diplomats and our scientists are pointing out..."

"...Warmer temperatures raise red flags for the Prince Albert Grand Councils Wildfire Task Force..."


Drought-weary Alberta opens water-sharing talks with large users

"...There are currently 51 water shortage advisories in the province. River basins from north to south face critical water shortages from low precipitation. The Oldman River in the south is down to about a third of its normal flow..."


Winnipeg winter may just break warm weather records, says one expert

"...This winter coincides with an El Nino year, Crawford said. An El Nino year occurs when more heat is released into the atmosphere, making certain areas in North America warmer and drier than usual. Warmer water from the Pacific Ocean affects jet streams and weather patterns around the world, leading to milder and less snowy winter in Canada..."


Panama Canal drought adds further strain on global trade amid Red Sea crisis

"...Since last year, severe drought conditions have reduced water levels in the critical trade route connecting North America and Asia, forcing canal authorities to reduce ship crossings and even hold auctions for when vessels can pass through. Some companies had planned to reroute to the Red Sea a key route between Asia and Europe to avoid the growing delays at the Panama Canal, analysts say. But the Houthi attacks, and subsequent western military response, have dashed those plans..."


January cold snaps in Weyburn an El Nino tradition

"...Theres a big upper low thats been over Hudson Bay spinning around, explained Terri Lang. She is a meteorologist with Environment and Climate Change Canada. The system, which was spinning counterclockwise, was pulling air from the Arctic..."


Climate change made Canada's warm December twice as likely, study says

"...So-called weather attribution studies are increasingly popular and have looked at the role of climate change for a wide range of events around the globe, including Canada's recent disastrous wildfire season. For December, Pershing added up the number of days in each province for which the shift index was higher than two, meaning climate change made that day's temperature at least twice as likely. Ontario and British Columbia had 11 such days..."


Research finds climate change made warm Canadian December twice as likely CityNews Kitchener

"...Climate change made Canada's warmest December in more than 50 years about twice as likely, a temperature anomaly that stood out around the world, a new study has found..."

El Nino's exit could open door to spring rain, but unlikely to replenish deficit on Prairies, says Lerner

Duration: 6:27

"...The odds of much-needed precipitation in Western Canada this spring will depend on how quickly the Pacific Ocean transitions out of El Nino, but even if a switch to La Nina opens the door to more moisture, it likely won't be enough to replenish low water supplies in the driest areas of the Prairies, according. ..."
