The Sum­mer Out­look for Canada

Stanstead Journal - - SPORTS -

com re­ports Canada as a whole will ex­pe­ri­ence a more typ­i­cal sum­mer weather regime in 2013, es­pe­cially com­pared to the record-set­ting, warm sum­mer that oc­curred in 2012. How­ever, we still ex­pect the sum­mer of 2013 to end up rank­ing in the top-10 warm­est sum­mers as the far north con­tin­ues to ex­pe­ri­ence well above-nor­mal tem­per­a­tures. Ac­cuWeather.com ex­pects a cooler and wet­ter sum­mer com­pared to nor­mal across a large por­tion of the Prairies and into north­ern On­tario, es­pe­cially in the first half of the sea­son.

Drier con­di­tions rel­a­tive to nor­mal are an­tic­i­pated this sum­mer from south­east­ern Bri­tish Columbia through south­ern Al­berta and into south­west­ern Saskatchewan as strong high pres­sure will ex­tend north through the Rock­ies on many oc­ca­sions. Much of south­east­ern Al­berta through south­west­ern Saskatchewan has been un­usu­ally wet so far this grow­ing sea­son. Warm and dry con­di­tions will dom­i­nate in the east, es­pe­cially dur­ing the sec­ond half of the sum­mer from south­ern Que­bec and into the western Mar­itimes. Places such as Mon­treal, Que­bec and Que­bec City could get ab­nor­mally dry once again dur­ing July and Au­gust. A typ­i­cal sum­mer can be ex­pected across most of south­ern On­tario, in­clud­ing Toronto, with a fair share of limited hot spells, but a con­stant sup­ply of quick-mov­ing fronts will bring brief storms and wel­come cooldowns. The sum­mer of 2013 will be warmer than aver­age for much of At­lantic Canada with nearnor­mal rain­fall for most, in­clud­ing Hal­i­fax, Nova Sco­tia, and St. John’s, New­found­land and Labrador.
