The Weather Network is forecasting a typical Canadian summer with higher than normal temperatures and near normal precipitation in the Atlantic region.
AMHERST – It’s shaping up to be a typical summer weatherwise, according to meteorologists with The Weather Network.
The network released its summer outlook on Wednesday, calling for near to above normal temperatures for much of Canada.
June is expected to be a month of variables with stretches of warm weather sandwiched between some cool snaps. Forecasters are saying unsettled conditions will dominate from the Great Lakes to the east coast with cooler temperatures.
“Although parts of Canada may see some upside-down weather in June, overall we can expect a typical Canadian summer,” Weather Network chief meteorologist Chris Scott said.
Things will become more consistent in July with parts of British Columbia and Atlantic Canada expecting the best chance for above normal temperatures.
The Weather Network is suggesting near normal precipitation for the Atlantic region, with the exception of portions of Labrador.
Last week, Environment Canada senior climatologist David Phillips predicted a warmer than normal summer for the Atlantic region with normal precipitation.
Accuweather.com is also predicting a warmer summer while the Canadian edition of the Old Farmer’s Almanac is suggesting a cooler than normal summer with less than normal rainfall.
