  • Feels Like

    Refers to how the outdoor air is expected to feel in degrees Celsius when actual temperature and relative humidity are combined (see humidex) or when actual temperature and wind are combined (see windchill).

  • Wind

    Wind is the horizontal movement of air in relation to the earth's surface. Wind direction tells where the wind is blowing from. For example, a "north wind" is coming from the north and is blowing towards the south. There are four components of wind that are measured: direction, speed, character (i.e. whether it's a gust or a squall) and shifts.

  • Wind gusts

    A sudden significant increase in, or rapid variation of wind speed. Usually a gust lasts less than twenty seconds.

  • Humidity

    Relative humidity is a percentage of water vapour per area at a specific temperature. Relative humidity is calculated at all times of the year, but the humidex is usually only given in the warmer months from May to September.

    Relative humidity can be calculated using various methods and instruments. It is a calculation to find out how many grams of water vapour can be held at a given temperature. Usually, the warmer the air, the higher its capacity for holding water vapour. Each specific temperature has a holding limit for water, and the actual amount of water held in the air at the time of measurement can be represented as a percentage. For example, if a parcel of air at 20C has a limit or capacity of 16 grams of water vapour and 16 grams of water vapour is measured, the air's holding capacity is at its maximum and the relative humidity (RH) of the air is said to be 100%. Take the same air with 8 grams of water vapour and your RH is 50%.

  • Pressure

    The force per unit area exerted by the weight of the atmosphere above a point on or above the earth's surface. Also known as atmospheric pressure or barometric pressure.

  • Visibility

    Visibility is defined as the greatest distance an object can be seen and identified. It is usually a visual estimate and is reported as prevailing visibility -- the maximum visibility common to one half or more of the horizon circle. When visibility is uniform in all directions, prevailing visibility and visibility are the same. When visibility is not uniform in all directions, you can determine prevailing visibility by dividing the horizon circle into sectors of visibility. Estimate the highest visibility common to one half or more of the horizon circle.

    The maximum visibility on a clear day is 11 kilometres (7 miles), after which a flat ground horizon will fall away to a point that surface conditions cannot be observed. In order to report visibility beyond this distance visibility markers are used. These markers are measured and could include mountains/hills, tree lines and microwave towers. The visibility is determined by the weather observer at an airport or weather station. The observer reports how far away objects can be identified without obstruction.

  • Ceiling

    Ceiling is a measurement primarily used by the aviation industry. The ceiling is the height of the lowest layer of broken or overcast clouds. Ceiling is reported in feet, which is the standard for the aviation industry.

Temp.

Temperature is the degree of hotness or coldness. Air temperatures are influenced by the local landscape, such as the presence of bodies of water. The air temperature is measured in degrees Celsius and is rounded to the nearest degree. The daytime maximum and nighttime minimum temperatures that a forecaster expects are often expressed as a range. If the forecast issued covers a wide region, the highs and lows are not going to be identical across all areas in that region.

P.O.P.

P.O.P. stands for "Probability of Precipitation." It does not predict when, where or how much precipitation will occur. When a weather service issues a forecast calling for rain, it is usually followed by a probability.

For example: "P.O.P. 60%." This expression means there is a 60% chance that any random place in the forecast area, such as your home, will receive measurable rainfall. Measurable rainfall means at least 0.2 mm of rain or the water equivalent of snow.
