Umbrella or sunscreen? – that is one of the many questions that I ponder every morning as I am about to step out the front door of my house for the day.
Adequately preparing for the weather is very important to me as I spend over 3-hours commuting to and from work each day with my guide dog via public transit. As you can imagine, a big part of that time is spent outdoors in the elements. Choosing appropriate clothing every morning requires an accurate weather forecast and I get mine from Environment Canada's Weather Phone.
Environment Canada's Weather Phone offers the current weather and a 7-day weather forecast. The forecast is updated frequently to reflect changing weather conditions.
Environment Canada's weather information is available at (604) 664-9010 for those living in Vancouver or you can search the phone number for your Canadian city at the following link:
Alternately, Environment Canada's weather information is available using the app called, Weather Office", for your smartphone.
Environment Canada is a great source for a reliable weather forecast. Check it out before you leave for the day so you'll never get caught wearing flip-flops when you should have been donning rubber boots.
