Wind farms and radar:Environment Canada posts map showing effect

What’s the weather going to be today? Any major storms on the way? Well, in the western portion of Ontario, where hundreds of wind turbines have already been built and still more are on the way, it will be tougher for Environment Canada to track weather systems, due to interference from the turbines.

Environment Canada has now posted a map to indicate the degree of interference at its Exeter radar station. See the map and full information here.

This map shows a view of the Exeter weather radar located at coordinates 43.37199° latitude and -81.38056° longitude. A circle is defined around the radar with a radius of 50 km. There is also a coloured region indicating the locations where a turbine is visible to the radar. As well, major cities and roads are shown. An explanation on how to view this map can be found in the section “How to view the map”.
