The Ministry of Transportation's weather station network is intended primarily for winter use and is maintained from October through to May. Most stations run through the summer but some stations may be decommissioned due to the potential risk of damage from lightning strikes. Instruments may be removed from a site for maintenance/calibration before being re-deployed prior to winter and Snow Depth sensors are decommissioned for the summer.

Most precipitation gauges are not maintained in summer and are subject to high levels of evaporation and are not emptied if they fill to capacity. There are however 19 stations that contribute to the Provincial Climate Related Monitoring Program which are maintained for summer data collection and provide reasonable precipitation data.
