Take a Peek: The Weather from One Year Ago

Here are the daily high and low temperatures for Kitchener, this time last year from March 14, 2012 to March 23, 2012.

This was taken from the weather network

From looking at the temperatures, most people would never guess that it's the same geographic location, one year apart.


  1. No, not a great March for riding this year :-(

    But, then, March last year was kind of an aberration ... 'Throughout the month of March daytime temperatures will generally reach highs of around 4°C that's about 39°F. At night the average minimum temperature drops down to around -5°C, that's 23°F.'

    So, this year, we're just slightly on the cool side of average.

  2. Scientists link frozen spring to dramatic Arctic sea ice loss

    'Climate scientists have linked the massive snowstorms and bitter spring weather now being experienced across ... large parts of ... North America to the dramatic loss of Arctic sea ice.'

    1. Seems like our weather is getting warmer (despite this current streak) while England's weather is getting colder. I had always understood they got warmer winters than us because of the Gulf Stream, because actually they are farther north than we are. (London England is a little further north than Moosonee, Ontario)

      Anyway, it does seem like the weather is changing in ways that are hard to predict precisely. And now they want to blame Punxatawney Phil.
