    Climate Data for Nova Scotia (Opens in a new Window)

    Climate Data for Nova Scotia includes information on maximum temperatures, minimum temperatures, precipitation, extreme precipitation and growing season length, broken up into different regions of Nova Scotia. Each region has historical data for a 30-year baseline period (1961-90 is used here) and future projections to the end of the century (2100). Future projections are based on 30-year time periods: 2020s, 2050s, and 2080s. This information was generated by the Meteorological Service of Canada at Environment and Climate Change Canada and uses a statistical downscaling method of results from the Canadian Global Climate Model (CGCM1).
