Finding weather data for comparison ??
I'm in need of an info source that could help in understanding changed local weather conditions. I've been gardening for over 30 years. We know from experience in our last three years that our local weather has involved cooler springs & later frosts (so planting has to be much delayed). At the same time, our summers have had fewer real-hot periods - and the mid-summer nights have been cooler (our time-tested corn varieties do not necessarily ripen ears).
I've located an Environment Canada site allowing access to daily or monthly temps (averages, plus highs and lows) for specific years - so it is not hard to come up with data for each of the last few problematic years. But I've tried to search the internet for "seasonal norms" for our area - you know, weekly or monthly temperature averages from something on the order of a 20-year or 30-year (or longer) period. "Crunched numbers". This is what I'm havng trouble finding.
Can anyone help me find my way to the "seasonal averages" sort of info that radio and TV weather announcers always make reference to? Thanks.
