CLIMATE
The structural features of the Canadian territory have relatively less importance for human settlement than the climatic ones. Canada is, in fact, a largely flat territory, with significant mountain ranges only to the west and in the direction of the meridians, so the conditions of habitability are essentially a direct function of the climate: where it is less northern there is the most vital of the country. This corresponds, in zonal function, to the extreme southern belt that rests on the border of the United States and which extends from San Lorenzo, through the Great Lakes and the Central Plains, to the Pacific coast. This is the “useful Canada” or “basic”, followed by the “Middle Canada” and the “Upper Canada”, where Nordicity is already very accentuated; finally there is the far North, which has a polar climate. This latitudinal differentiation of the climatic bands is very irregular due to numerous factors. First of all, the high must be taken into account continentality of the Canadian territory; secondly, its openness to polar influences and its mountainous closure along the western area. Polar air masses regulate the climate for much of the year and result in cold, dry winters with stable weather. Frost conditions go far to the S, so much so that one of the characteristics of the Canadian climate are thermal anomalies. This occurs especially in the eastern regions which, devoid of relief, are more exposed to Arctic influences and, moreover, are lapped by the cold Labrador current.: San Lorenzo, which is located at the latitude of London, freezes for 4-5 months a year; in Montreal, January averages are close to -10 ºC. In the Central Plains, continentality accentuates the rigors of winter and determines greater temperature variations annual: in Winnipeg January averages are -17 ºC, June averages are over 20 ºC. On the Pacific coast, sheltered from continental influences, the sea mitigates the climate: in Victoria January records an average of 4 ºC and July 15 ºC. Winter anticyclonic conditions in inland regions are removed by the abrupt arrival of summer by the Atlantic humid air masses. It is then that variable weather conditions occur with the characteristic rainfall in the Great Plains and in the Atlantic side itself, although here, as more accentuated in the peaceful one, rainfall occurs in every season. On the eastern façade there are up to 1000 mm of rainfall per year, which drop to 600 mm and even less in the Central Plains. In the intermontane basins of the Rocky Mountains there are even lower values; we then move on to the Pacific-facing slopes of the Coastal Range, where even 2000 mm of rainfall is exceeded, brought about by westerly winds. In “Upper Canada” and in the Arctic archipelagos, the annual rate of 200 mm is almost never exceeded. In a country with such Nordic characteristics, snowfalls are abundant; the snowpack is almost everywhere persistent for more than 2 months, except on the western ocean front. Due to climate change caused by global warming in the village of Lytton in British Columbia, the recird temperature of 49.5 ° C was reached on 29 June 2021.
