By THE CANADIAN PRESS The weather is finally getting warmer, but a new survey says we are still dealing with the effects of climate change and will continue to see it through the next century.
The Globe and Mail has been tracking changes to the weather since the end of World War II.
In 2017, the Globe and Press reported that climate change had caused an average of one-in-five days of sunshine in the contiguous United States each year.
The next year, the numbers had risen to two-in and one-out.
That same year, it was three-in, three-out and four-in.
The last two years, the number of days of total sunshine dropped to one-and-a-half and two-and the total number of hours of total light fell to one.
This is the fourth year the Globe has released its weather forecasts.
The forecast for the coming decade is a big one.
The paper has said the forecast is “based on the most recent data from a global network of weather stations and satellites.”
And the Globe says it will use new, “enhanced” models to “improve accuracy.”
In an accompanying editorial, the paper said: “We are now living in the age of the Climate Tracker.”
It noted that the average number of people living in Canada was 9.6 million in 2016.
It added that the number was “down from the previous decade” but was “still well above pre-industrial times.”
That year, a record 6.9 million Canadians lived in areas where the average temperature was above 30 C. There were a total of 2.2 million people living more than 50 kilometres from the coast, a total that was down from the pre-global-warming peak of 3.3 million people.
The climate tracker forecasts temperatures will be warmer, the season will be longer and the number and duration of storms will be shorter.
The Canadian Press will continue tracking weather trends and changes for the next decade.

It’s still too early to tell if the warming of the planet will be bad or good, but for now, it’s safe to say the world will be hotter than it’s ever been before.
The temperature forecast for Canada is a pretty strong one.
And we’ve been seeing the same trends.
And this week, there was another major report from the U.N. on climate-related risks.
The latest is from the International Energy Agency, which says global warming has already contributed to about 30 per cent of the rising greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.
The agency says global greenhouse gas emissions could increase by up to 20 per cent by 2050 and by 50 per cent over the next two decades.
The global temperature is forecast to rise by about 2 C over that time.
And the increase in temperature has already been happening over the last decade.
But that doesn’t mean there’s any reason to panic.
Global temperatures are not going to be an apocalyptic event.
In fact, a warmer climate has a huge number of positive side effects for Canada and the world.
For example, the warmer temperatures will lead to a drop in rainfall in the Prairies, a cooling of the ice in the Arctic and an increase in summer temperatures in Canada.
There’s also the fact that Canada has the world’s largest Arctic coastline, which could see a bigger increase in snowfall and an additional decrease in snowpack.
But those are just the positives.
In some ways, there’s a bigger upside.
The world’s average temperature is expected to increase by about 1.3 C by 2050, which is expected due to the cooling effect of warming.
That’s about as much as the United States is expected increase by.
And even the warming effect of a warming world will not be as bad as it could be if we get all of the carbon emissions out of the atmosphere, said Mark Jaccard, the director of the Institute for Governance at the University of British Columbia.
Jaccart said the biggest impact of global warming is likely to be on food security.
That means it will mean the supply of fresh food could increase.
But he also said we need to be cautious about the potential for extreme weather events.
If you have one of these types of events, you’ll see a drop of a couple of feet in rainfall and that will be an increase of about 0.1 centimetres in the soil, he said.
He said this will not cause a massive increase in crop losses, but could cause crop losses of a few centimetre.
That could have an effect on the quality of crops.
“But the fact is that we’re not going into a situation where crops are going to disappear because we have a lot of extreme weather that is occurring now,” he said, noting that climate is changing rapidly and could lead to some crops disappearing.
The same is true for the amount of carbon dioxide in the air, he added.
