There she blows: Tracking storms in Canada
CBC Kids News contributor Isabelle MacNeil visits the Atlantic Storm Prediction Centre
Canadians have seen some pretty gnarly weather events in recent years.
From tornadoes to snowstorms, meteorologists are constantly keeping an eye on the weather.
“A meteorologist is someone who studies the sky” - Ian Hubbard, Environment Canada
In Atlantic Canada, they’ve been watching hurricanes, as the season continues until Nov. 30.
Just like the weather, the technology used to predict these storms is always changing.
CBC Kids News contributor Isabelle MacNeil visited the Atlantic Storm Prediction Centre in Dartmouth, N.S., to find out how things work.
She met meteorologist Ian Hubbard.
“A meteorologist is someone who studies the sky, and is always forecasting what’s happening in the sky and what’s going to be precipitating down to the Earth,” explained Hubbard.
