Once upon a time, there were over 250 weather stations collecting bright sunshine data in Canada each month.
Alas we are now down to 7 stations. In 3 provinces. And only 5 of the 7 are considered reliable enough or old enough to have “% of Normals” calculated.
March 2013 was pretty sunny in BC (really Vancouver Island / Vancouver) where sunshine was around 115% of normal (the 1971-2000 average).
(I’m not sure why Vancouver has an NA for % of normal as it usually has a value )
I think most of the sunshine arrived the last week of March.
Goose A was pretty gloomy. 61% of normal.
