Summer officially arrives at 6:51 am Saturday and you’re probably wondering what Mother Nature has up her sleeves for the Summer.
After a long and what seemed to be an never ending winter, it’s time to bask in the warmth of the sun, but just how much sun and heat will we see here in Sault Ste. Marie?
Long range forecasts for Summer 2014 were issued Friday indicating the trend of cooler weather will continue. By cooler , we mean below slightly were we should be temperature wise. Precipitation will be near normal, that’s about 250mm for the three month period.
There will be some hot and humid spells as well. But for the most part you can sum it up as “unsettled”
Normal conditions will kick off the first week of summer with a mix of sun and cloud and temperatures around normal. Normal temperatures being around 22 to 24c.
Unsettled conditions move in for the final week of June as heat and humidity builds into the area. Expect to see a few lines of thunderstorms move in over the Great Lakes.
Things start to clear for the Canada Day holiday with a mix of sun and cloud and near normal temps.
Most of July looks unsettled with a number of weather systems moving in. The heat is on full blast towards the end of July. Expect temperatures to build in the low 30’s for this period.
More rain and unsettled conditions continue into August. It appears the best week of summer could fall between August 8 to 12, with clear hot and humid conditions forecast for that period. Slow moving systems from the west will move in after that which could bring heavy periods of rain.
Calm conditions and warm weather will finish off the month of August and into what could be above normal temperatures for the Fall..but we will have to wait and see about that.
