HALIFAX - After a couple sizzling hot weeks in July, August probably feels like a breeze too many.

Environment Canada meteorologist Paula Sutherland says this has been the trend for the past few years and we can expect comfortable temperatures in the low to mid 20s for the rest of the summer heading into the school year.

“There is a slight chance of above-normal temperatures, probably into the next 30 days,” said Sutherland, explaining it may only be warmer by one to two degrees. She says normal temperatures in August into September range from 21 to 23 Cs.

Patricia Poirier, who was watercolour painting at the Public Gardens Monday afternoon, says this summer has been “marvellous.”

“With the rain, we do need it because this is what makes everything so beautiful. And I think the gardens are much prettier this year than they were last,” she said.

Nicole Giacomantonio, another Haligonian out enjoying a beautiful sunny Monday, is relieved the hot and muggy July weather that the municipality experienced appears to be over.

“When it was too hot you just want to sit in your cold basement and not do anything,” she said. “So I’m actually enjoying myself and enjoying the weather more.”

But not everyone thinks the summer weather has been A-OK. Jim Aucoin says he likes to golf and the rain, much of which came in June, has made that difficult.

“It seemed that whenever I wanted to go it was raining, and the courses were wet,” he said.
