Enjoy the weather this long weekend as things could soon turn wetter and cooler.
That’s according to Environment Canada Senior Climatologist David Phillips who says the heat we saw in July, with the temperature almost 2 degrees warmer than normal on average and 7 days where it soared above thirty degrees, isn’t expected to carry through for the first few weeks of August.
Phillips says he doesn’t expect to see the temperature in our area soar above thirty through the early part of the month and we may not see it go above that mark until around the end of the month.
As for this long weekend though, Phillips says we should get out and enjoy it.
“Lots of sunshine, wall-to-wall sunshine, temperatures that are one or two degrees warmer than normal, it should be about 27 for a high, and we might see 28, 27, 29 so that’s all positive, and no severe weather to get in the way.”
On the bright side, Phillips says he expects we will see warmer weather than normal come September and October.
