The Weather Network predicts over the next few months Canada will be swept with hot temperatures and big storms. The agency’s chief meteorologist, Chris Scott said heat coupled with an active jet stream will result in above-normal precipitation that runs across the Prairies to Ontario and Quebec.
Scott explained that it “doesn’t mean every day is going to be a wash-out, … some rather intense storms from time to time.” He says Western Canada isn’t looking to have the same conditions that led to last year’s devastating heat wave in British Columbia. According to the Weather Network, the westernmost province is predicted to slowly emerge from a cool spring and into near-normal temperatures starting in June.
Scott did note the threat of drought conditions lingers in southern Alberta, which could be influenced by “epic heat” south of the border. He said “We’ll have to watch exactly where that big heat dome sets up, … This does set the stage for thunderstorms … We can get big hail, big wind in the Prairies”
