Weather Network says a warm and humid summer is expected, with periods of cooler, refreshing weather in June. Though there will be extended periods of hot and dry weather in July and August, oppressive heat will not dominate the entire summer as periods of cooler weather will break up the heat at times. Localized thunderstorms are expected to bring rain and warm weather will continue through much of September.
The prairies can expect a cooler summer across far northern areas with western parts of the region experiencing colder than normal temperatures during August. The rest of the region can expect a typical summer with periods of hot and dry weather. The Weather Network says a stormy pattern at times and shots of cooler weather will keep temperatures and precipitation near normal for most areas. An active storm track could bring above-normal rainfall to areas near and north of the Yellowhead Highway.
Though June will start with cooler temperatures, the Weather Network expects very warm to hot weather will dominate during the heart of summer. The summer heat may come to an early end with the potential for cooler than normal temperatures to end the season. Near normal rainfall is expected along with the typical risk for wildfires.
According to Weather Network, though normal rainfall is expected for much of the region, some areas will turn rather dry during the summer.
Warm summer with near normal to slightly above normal temperatures during July and August are also expected.
- Canadian meteorologists are predicting another active hurricane season, saying conditions are right for a long list of tropical storms.
The Weather Network says a warmer than normal summer is expected for the Yukon, but near normal to slightly below normal temperatures are expected for the NWT and Nunavut. The network also says near-normal precipitation is expected across most of the region, but the threat of wildfires will remain.
