Lightstation Weather Reports
All stations provide local marine weather for mariners.
At Nootka, we also provide supplementary weather reports for aviators (cloud levels and density, and relative humidity.) In addition, we do climate observations: maximum and minimum temperatures, and the amount of rainfall/snowfall, and enter it into Environment Canada's cooperative/volunteer climate network weather collection project -- COOLTAP. This helps to create long range forecasts.
Perched on the edge of the ocean, we're not only a beacon for mariners, we provide much needed current information.
