Abstract: Toronto’s Future Weather

The talk will address the future weather of the City of Toronto. Climate Change

scenarios were combined with SENES’s detailed weather prediction models to

produce weather summaries for two future periods 2041 to 2050, and 2070 to 2079.

Hourly weather scenarios have been estimated for the two 10-year future periods,

and some typical and specialized, extreme weather summaries will be discussed as

they relate to engineering / infrastructure needs. This is the first time that climate

scenarios have been studied to this level of detail.
