Environment Canada launching new software to deal with wind turbines
CTV News
Weeks after a tornado hit, the clean-up continues for many residents in Grand Bend, ON. It's the radar at the Exeter Weather Station that helped predict that storm. But the impending arrival of hundreds of wind turbines may put the Exeter Weather Station's predictions in jeopardy — it cannot block out the spinning blades of wind turbines. On its website, Environment Canada says the degradation of data interrupted by wind turbines can be "significantly misleading for forecasters under storm conditions."
