Environment Canada calls for warmer weather in July

This comes following above-average amounts of rain in June.

An Environment Canada meteorologist predicts warmer, drier conditions starting later this week.

Kyle Fougere of Environment Canada says we've been under an upper trough, which carries rainy weather, but we can expect sunnier weather as an upper ridge approaches.

He says the region experienced about 150% of June's average precipitation, seeing 125 mm, mostly in the last two weeks of the month. Although that's high, it's not the record, which sits at 193 mm from back in 1973. He adds that the rainy conditions were actually beneficial considering how dry the spring was. 

Fougere says with 47 mm of rain in just 10 days into July, we're already past the halfway point of the month's average.

Finally, he says that July brings the most thunderstorms of the year, and that people should be equipped with tools to receive weather warnings.
