Climate Signals summary: British Columbia is facing more flooding rain as another atmospheric river takes aim at the region. Atmospheric rivers are getting stronger thanks to human-caused climate change.
Tyler Hamilton, a meteorologist for the Weather Network, a cable weather channel in Canada, called computer model precipitation forecasts for British Columbia “disconcerting,” writing in a tweet that incoming moisture would solidify “one of the wettest Novembers in recorded history.”
“We are bracing for what will end up being probably a record-breaking fall in terms of overall precipitation numbers for many communities along the central and south coast,” said Armel Castellan, a meteorologist with Environment Canada, the country’s weather service, in a video posted to social media.
With climate change, Castellan said, “we are going to see stronger atmospheric rivers on our coasts, and I think we need to be very much prepared for that signal to be amplified.”
