Written by Phil Chadwick and Bill Hume.
Published by Lone Pine Publishing, 2009.


Here in Ontario, the weather can range from mild and wet in the south, to hot and humid in Toronto, to heavy flurries and cold in the north. Weather of Ontario provides an easy-to-understand and exhaustive presentation of the weather phenomena found in Ontario.

Join acclaimed Ontario meteorologist Phil "The Forecaster" Chadwick as he explores this ever-fascinating subject and explains:
  • the major influences on the climate of Ontario, including the Great Lakes, Hudson Bay, the Niagara Escarpment and the Gulf of Mexico
  • the impact of weather on forest fires
  • the forces that create cloud patterns, snowflakes, rain drops, hail stones and freezing rain
  • extreme weather throughout Ontario's history
  • weather forecasting techniques and equipment
  • the implications of trends such as global warming
  • and much more.
Supported by full-colour photographs and outstanding illustrations, including Phil's own paintings, Weather in Ontario unveils the complex forces that generate the diverse conditions found in Ontario.

Phil Chadwick specialized in severe weather in his 30 year career with Environment Canada, serving as the meteorologist "behind the scenes" in several major weather events, including the ice storm that paralyzed Ontario and Quebec in 1998. Phil is also an accomplished oil painter whose weather-oriented works have been featured in numerous Canadian galleries.

Bill Hume spent 35 years working for the federal government as a meteorologist before taking retirement in 2007. He continues to sit on the national executive of the Canadian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society. Bill has extensive experience in weather and sea state forecasting, weather and climate data monitoring, as well as air quality science.
