Canadian climate data[edit]

I noticed that you were updating the data for several places. Good work and thanks. However there are a couple of problems. First off you are giving {{cite web |url= http://www.climate.weatheroffice.gc.ca/climate_normals/station_metadata_e.html?StnId=1275 |title=Calculation Information for 1981 to 2010 Canadian Normals Data |publisher= Environment Canada |accessdate=July 9, 2013 }} as the source. But http://climate.weather.gc.ca/climate_normals/station_metadata_e.html?StnId=1275 is actually the explaination as to how the data for Kamloops Airport was calculated for the 1971-2000 period. You should link to ftp://ftp.tor.ec.gc.ca/Pub/Normals/English/ where a mdb file of the entire country can be obtained. Probably better would be ftp://ftp.tor.ec.gc.ca/Pub/Normals/English/ where you can see all the provinces or to the actual province, ftp://ftp.tor.ec.gc.ca/Pub/Normals/English/BC/. This would give you {{cite web | title = Edmonton City Centre Airport | work = Canadian Climate Normals 1981−2010 | publisher = Environment Canada | date = August 19, 2013 | url = ftp://ftp.tor.ec.gc.ca/Pub/Normals/English/ | accessdate = September 10, 2013}}

The other thing is that you dropped some data. For example Dease Lake. The old version had the humidex, wind chill and various precipitation measurements that got dropped. They are all available in the 1981-2010 normals so should have been retained. CambridgeBayWeather (talk) 16:37, 28 September 2013 (UTC)

October 2013[edit]

Hello, I'm Mark Arsten. I noticed that you made a change to an article, Signature song, but you didn't provide a source. I’ve removed it for now, but if you’d like to include a citation to a reliable source and re-add it, please do so! If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks. Mark Arsten (talk) 01:20, 17 October 2013 (UTC)

Climate data[edit]

Please do not drop the zeros. The serve an important function in that the reader knows exactly what the number was supposed to be. If you use 7 then the reader can't be sure if there is a missing .4 after that. Also can you please link to the source. None of the sources give actually lead to anything close to a useful source.
