Sea Surface Temperature Anomalies and Snow Cover
One-year animation of SST Anomalies, Snow Coverage, and Sea Ice Coverage (Pacific Ocean and the Americas). This animation is well suited to observing the ENSO SST Anomaly phenomenon during El-Niño/La Niña years. It also displays the yearly cycle of snow coverage over the northern landmasses.
30-day animation of SST anomalies, Snow Coverage, and Sea Ice Coverage (North America). One can observe the progression or retreat of the snow coverage over North America during the past month.
The climate of Canada is mainly influenced by the sea surface temperature and the sea ice extent of the surrounding seas as well as by the snow cover. Using the above links, you can have access to maps of the current state of these fields as analysed by the CMC. You can also look at some animations to follow the evolution of the conditions during the last months.
