Why tweet weather information?
Everyone talks about the weather, but did you know that by tweeting your observations about significant or unusual weather you will help Environment Canada’s Meteorological Service? By accessing real-time weather information via Twitter, forecasters are expanding their ability to provide weather services to Canadians. Environment Canada’s Meteorological Service uses a variety of tools to predict and report the weather, including a national network of weather observation stations, Doppler weather radars, international weather satellites, and other advanced technologies. We also have a network of volunteer weather watchers on the ground to give us the most complete picture possible.
