WICOBS Blog

I constantly monitor the activity on the Web that bears any relationship to the main theme, and purpose of my Web site.

Weather-In-Canada-Observer.com

What's my site's theme? How meteorology influences our everyday lives. What's my site's purpose? Making it easier for you to understand how weather works and how to make sense out of all that is being written or said about "global warming" and climate change!

I will report, on this Blog, any newsworthy activity, as well as alert you to the publishing of any new information that I have published, for you, on my Web site.

Be advised

On Friday Dec 12 2014, Weather-in-Canada-Observer.com will be found under a new domain name CDNweather.com, short for Canadian Weather.

The change will take about 24 hours to be registered by all Web servers around the world. CDNweather.com may be - temporarily - unavailable to you in your part of the world on that day.

CDNweather.com will also have a new look which will be more in line with the refocusing of its content.

Lastly, the site will gradually be made more mobile friendly. More than 20% of my website visitors already visit using iPads and other tablets, as well as smart phones.

Your comments and suggestions are always welcome.
