UPDATE: Best Weather Alerts on Twitter for Waterloo Region

Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge (Ontario, Canada)

Last year I researched 12 different Twitter accounts which provided weather info and/or alerts for the Waterloo Region of Ontario, Canada (here).

I provided detailed analysis of each account and came up with my top choice of these two Twitter accounts:

Since then, I have discovered another very good Twitter account for this region which provides slightly different alerts:

  • @ECAlertON82 (Alerts for K-W, quiet except when extreme weather is occurring)

I would recommend following all three of these “different yet complimentary” Twitter accounts. (If you don’t want forecasts, then skip the wf_KitchenerWat account.)

All three Twitter accounts are operated by Environment Canada so they use the most up-to-date weather data available.


Environment Canada doesn’t yet provide weather warning or forecast Twitter accounts for Cambridge, Ontario (part of Waterloo Region).

However, they do provide an extreme weather alerts account as follows:

For weather alerts for Cambridge, ON, I’d suggest following ECAlertON81 and ww_KitchenerWat, and for forecasts, wf_KitchenerWat.
