2018 marks the 20th anniversary of the Canadian weather radar network first used Doppler Radar.
Environment Canada spokesperson, Terri Lang, notes it’s still an improvement over standard radar, however.
She said doppler gives meteorologists an in depth look at particle movement in clouds, which is important for predicting tornadoes and damaging winds.
“We have the most tornadoes per year, compared to everybody else in Canada,” she said. “Alberta, Manitoba and southern Ontario are close behind.”
Lang said peak season for tornadoes in Canada typically occurs throughout June and July.
