Weather Network Forecasts Cooler Summer in GTA
A long, brutal winter and cooler than normal spring doesn’t mean we won’t have a beautiful summer in the Greater Toronto Area.

The Weather Network issued its Summer Outlook for the months of June, July and August on Tuesday and it appears the Greater Toronto Area won’t be feeling the scorching heat it has in past years.   

“Well it does look like we will have a pleasant summer ahead.  We’ve turned the corner, winter is behind us, and the crummy spring is behind us so it does look like we will get a pleasant summer.   If you look at our graphic for our summer outlook it does show Toronto a little bit below seasonal.  That being said we only expect it to be maybe a degree or two below seasonal.” Said Dana Vettese , a meteorologist with the Weather Network. 

So instead of 28-29 degree temperatures it’ll be more like 25-26 degrees outside.  This is good news for those who suffer from asthma and other medical issues that can be exacerbated by the scorching heat.  Vettese says it doesn’t mean we won’t see a stinking hot day here or there, but our temperatures will remain at or below seasonal.

If you love the heat and plan on travelling in Canada, your best bet is to go west. 

“It does look like British Columbia is going to be the hot spot this summer.  It looks like we are expecting above normal temperatures for British Columbia.  On the flip side we do expect below normal precipitation so we’ll have to certainly keep an eye on that area for forest fires going forward this summer but if you want heat, west coast looks like the place to be.  If you want cool weather Manitoba and into Northwestern Ontario look like the focal points of that cooler weather this summer.”

If you’re planning to head to the Atlantic Provinces, they’re expecting normal temperatures this summer, but above normal in the Southwestern parts of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.

As for rainfall here in the GTA, Dana Vettese says we’re expected to see normal levels of precipitation, higher levels in Northern Ontario.
