WHY WAS VICTORIA SO GLOOMY IN MARCH? TIMES COLONIST REPORT BY JEFF BELL OMITS CAUSE OF RECORD-BREAKING DATA

Published April 12, 2017 by goyodelarosa

Environment Canada meteorologist Matt MacDonald said 29 of the 31 days in March had rain.

Hours of sunshine were down, too, of course.

“That was the third gloomiest March on record,” MacDonald said. “We got 96.9 hours of sun and the normal is 142 hours, so it was significantly below.”

He said the gloomiest March in local weather annals came in 1989 with 87.7 hours. The second gloomiest was in 1972 with 91.9 hours.

Total rainfall for March 2017 was 138 millimetres at Victoria International Airport, making it the fourth wettest March on record. Normal rainfall at the airport in March is 78 mm.

It was a different story at the Gonzales weather station, where the March rainfall norm is 46.5 mm. Last month, 77.8 mm fell.

MacDonald said such factors as the proximity of the Gonzales station to the water and the area’s ocean winds account for the variation in precipitation totals.

March temperatures were much closer to usual numbers, with a 6.6 C average at Victoria International Airport, just under the 6.8 C norm. At Gonzales, the temperature averaged 7 C, as compared with the normal 7.6 C.

  • Bill Vander Zalm understood our predicament a long time ago, while the BC Green Party’s Andrew Weaver is stuck in the past, suing people like Dr. Timothy Ball in a futile attempt to shut down public debate on the complete failure of so-called ‘climate models’ that the Dr. used to produce when employed by the public at UVic…in a vain attempt to give his pseudo science a veneer of plausibility.

    Those darned geo-engineers that the Dr. denies have any effect have actually rendered his models erroneous. The trouble is, geo-engineering does have many damaging short term and long term effects, from drought to deluge, and it is patently absurd to blame so-called ‘climate change’ on C02, while disregarding the more plausible chemtrailing that is easily visible and audible.
