WINNIPEG – If you like wearing bathing suits and muscle shirts, the temperature outlook for this summer is right up your alley.
Environment Canada’s Dave Phillips says they’re predicting a warmer than normal summer, with several days above 30 degrees.
But he says even though today is the first day of summer, we may have already had what could go down as the hottest day of the year.
“That day on May 5, when it got up to 35 degrees, it may not get warmer than that for the rest of the summer. But we still think there’s lots of summer left.”
As for rain, he says that’s harder to predict.
“You know it could rain on your front yard and not your backyard. You can’t see these weather systems coming. It doesn’t persist like the temperature controls.”
He says they also can’t give an outlook for severe weather, but Manitoba typically gets a few big storms and about 12 tornados per year.
