Weather Patterns of Eastern Vancouver Island: Dr Hannah Wilson

Are we really in a micro climate in Nanoose Bay?

Weather both impacts and benefits our Island life on a daily basis.  While our geographic locale makes us immune to such dramatic weather events as hurricanes and tornados, knowledge of the common weather variables of temperature, precipitation, and wind helps us determine how to dress, to plan outdoor activities, to manage our backyard gardens, and to plan for transportation hazards (e.g., for ferries, flights).

Our September speaker, Dr Hannah Wilson, Head of Geography Department at Vancouver Island University, will first outline and explain some important science about the weather patterns of the Pacific Northwest and will work down in scale to examine unique characteristics of the Nanoose area microclimate.
