Well, after a long, wet spring, it’s safe to say that summer is finally around the corner.
And while it will be hot, The Weather Network is forecasting a changeable weather pattern throughout the season.
“One of the themes that we have across the country is to expect a changeable summer,” said the Weather Network’s Dr. Doug Gillham. “It’s not a summer where most areas will truly lock into a pattern.”
Montreal is not expected to be as hot and dry as last summer, but the temperatures will alternate between above and near normal temperatures.
“Montreal is right on the line for normal versus above normal. Montreal will have back and forth swing in temperatures but a little better chance to tip on the warm side of normal,” Dr. Gillham told Daily Hive.
In terms of “normal,” it’s the temperatures closest to the monthly average. And for Montreal’s upcoming summer, it looks like the changeable pattern means that some days will be in the 30°C range, other days will fail to reach the upper to mid 20s.
The Weather Network forecasts temperatures in Montreal to steadily climb until it peaks at 26°C to 27°C, which is the warmest average high for temperatures over June to August.
As for the rain, the city feels like it has seen its fair share of spring showers, but precipitation should hover around normal for Montreal this summer.
Typically, we see between 85 to 95 mm of rainfall per month for June, July, and August, and the city should expect near to above normal precipitation, with no concern for a drought this summer.
For those who do like the heat, there will be heatwaves throughout the summer, but there will also be periods of cooler weather, balancing out the average temperatures.
Regardless of the longterm weather pattern, we’re just really excited for summer at this point.
Just don’t expect it not to be a bit of a ride when it does arrive.
