Our parent company, Glacier Media, recently launched Weatherhood on all of its news sites across Metro Vancouver, with weather stations strategically positioned around Richmond neighbourhoods to give you a hyper-local forecast.

The stations are all scientifically calibrated at UBC’s Atmospheric Sciences department, and our stations are placed in a way that is meteorologically sound: away from trees, buildings, walls, and major obstructions.

More than 50 sensors have been strategically placed throughout the region, including along the Sunshine Coast, all the way up to Whistler.

“The most accurate hyper-local weather available anywhere in Canada,” says Kemp Edmonds, Weatherhood’s director, noting the majority of the sensors are installed on low-rise rooftops in city environments.

“What we’re trying to do is capture what the weather would be like on the street level,” he says, pointing to other sensors at the Ladner Yacht Club, Stanley Park and the Capilano Suspension Bridge. Each sensor is placed within one to five kilometres of each other."
