Visualizing Canadian Climate Normals

I’m an avid Twitter follower of Simon Kuestenmacher (@simongerman600), who is a prolific tweeter of maps (all sorts). The other day I saw this tweet, which links to a reddit thread that used the PRISM dataset to make an animated map of precipitation in the US. A few weeks ago I had a colleague email me asking for the Canadian climate normals raw data (which can be found here), and having made an animated map of Earth’s paleogeography, I decided to give it a go for Canada.
