A Strong Al Nizo is expected to bring mild temperatures this autumn but May also have an Impact on precipitation Levels this autumn and Winter. Alex Mccuaig Mccuaig Medicine agnews. Com twitter my Mccuaig the seasonal forecast might sound pleasant with a extremely Strong Al Nizo expected to bring a mild autumn to Southern Alberta. But it could also push Back the chances for a reprieve of dry conditions that has parched much of the province. Brett Anderson acc weather senior meteorologist said there is a Strong consensus in the data predicting a fall with above Normal temperatures in Western Canada. And its expected Al Nizo will have its biggest Impact on precipitation late into the fall and Early Winter. This Al Nizo continues to strengthen and we expect it to be one of the strongest on record going Back to 1950, said Anderson. Usually when we have Strong Al Nizo that Means widespread warmth across Western Canada and also dryer than Normal conditions especially across Southern Alberta and into Southern b. C. Al Nizo weather patterns Are characterized by warm Pacific Ocean water temperatures along the coast of North America. Temperatures Are averaging about two to four degrees celsius above Normal off b. C. And the Pacific Northwest coast of the United states said Anderson. Thatus not changing anytime soon. The effect of those warm Ocean temperatures will be to create a High pressure system along the West coast said Anderson resulting in storms being pushed up into Alaska and coming Down into Northern Saskatchewan and Manitoba. Thatus the pattern that we think is going to develop As we get into the fall and then Al nil Ops impacts will get drawn in As we get into the Winter said Anderson. The Al Nizo effects Are expected to Peak in december but Anderson added they wont completely fade until the end of the Winter possibly into Spring 2016. But while Anderson said he is confident regarding the seasonal temperatures remaining above Normal throughout the fall precipitation May come in High Energy storms fortified by warm moist air pushing through the High pressure Ridge on the coast and into the Prairies. However he said he expects to see the Jet Stream split into a Northern and Southern Section with Western provinces in the Middle leaving the Region High and dry.

Com twitter my Mccuaig after two decades of Sage grouse population decline a local provincial biologist has some Good news the first increase in the numbers of male Birds since 1996. But the 35 male Sage grouse recorded in Alberta during a Survey conducted earlier this year still pales to the 613 found in 1968 in the province said fish and wildlife biologist Joel Nicholson. Were continuing to put a lot of focus on Sage grouse in our species at risk program said Nicholson. Our plans Are not to let up. Sage grouse Are seen As one of the country is most endangered species with As few As 14 males recorded in the province in 2014 and a half dozen in Saskatchewan. The future of the Bird led to a court action to Force the Federal government to adhere to its Laws under the species at risk act which in turn led to a controversial imposition of an emergency Protection order in 2014. But Nicholson said the recent recovery is Likely due to a number of initiatives the provincial government has been working on for several years. I know that because Ive been doing it said Nicholson adding those initiatives included habitat restoration removal of abandoned structures used by predators and a translocation program of Birds from Montana. He highlighted that two broods of Sage grouse were successfully raised from Birds used As part of that translocation program. The population increase will also provide biologists More time to implement recovery strategies said Nicholson. Were hoping to build on this with the same programs we had on the landscape last year that we Are implementing this year said Nicholson. So ism hoping Well have Back to Back increases. Alberta initiated its first recovery strategy for the Sage grouse in 2005 which it updated in 2013. Hunting the Bird was banned in the province in 1995. The sept. 30 deadline for designation of the Sage grouse under the u. S. Endangered species act is expected to draw increased attention in the coming weeks. Survey counts across the 11 u. S.
