Average Summer in Store for Manitoba: Forecasters

The Weather Network has released its summer outlook, giving Canadians a preview of what to expect weather-wise over the next few months.

The national weather channel’s team of meteorologists have put together a comprehensive outlook, giving each province a look into how June, July and August will play out.

“Although parts of Canada may see some upside-down weather in June, overall we can look forward to a pretty typical Canadian summer,” said Chris Scott, chief meteorologist at The Weather Network.

“Summer is also thunderstorm season and people should stay on top of changing weather conditions to avoid being caught out in the storm.”

TWN says the BC Southern Interior can expect the hottest weather through the first half of June, while the best chance of thunderstorms will be focused in the Prairies, particularly Southern Alberta and Saskatchewan.

Below normal temperatures are predicted in Manitoba from Port Nelson southeast, but will otherwise be near normal. Below normal precipitation is expected across central and east-central parts of the province, but otherwise near normal.

The complete summer outlook is available online.
