Environment Canada's senior climatologist is shaking his head over the flurry of bad weather hitting the Prairies this year, most notably in Alberta. David Phillips, who has been on the job for five decades, says the 2016 weather season isn't likely to be one that Albertans or others on the Prairies will look back on fondly. (Phillips says July was the wettest in Calgary since 1927. He says the other interesting thing is the number of thunderstorms -- there were 19 last month compared to the norm of about eight.)
