The BC summer forecast is out and it's going to be super dry

Mar 9 2023, 6:15 pm

It’s hard to believe, but summer is right around the corner, and it’s going to be a thirsty one.

Last year was the third-hottest summer on record in Canada. Here in BC, we experienced a drought so severe that the Mojave desert was receiving more rainfall than Vancouver.

So, what’s ahead for Summer 2023?

Across Canada this summer, it’ll be warmer than normal, according to Farmers’ Almanac. In many regions, “the heat will seem unrelenting, persisting from late June through early September,” it said.

ā€œOur official forecast calls for much warmer than normal conditions for most of the nation,ā€ said the Farmersā€™ Almanac, warning of temperatures at times that will soar past 32Ā°C, in some cases even approaching 37Ā°C.

BC is set to see seasonal temperatures and dry conditions.

As for the rest of spring, the forecast is looking pretty wet and cold. But don’t worry, summer will be here shortly and soon enough we’ll be dreaming of cool days like these.
