WEICan Launches new Climate Meteorlogical Station webpage


WEICan is pleased to launch our Climate Meteorological Station webpage. This page shares real-time and historical data from WEICan’s Climate Monitoring Facility, which was commissioned in 2021. Information about the instrumentation used for the measurement data is also available on this webpage. Sharing this data allows improved knowledge of climate change and adaptation in Prince Edward Island.  

This webpage and the Climate Monitoring Facility were created with funding from the Province of PEI’s Climate Challenge Fund.
