Summer 2017 is likely to usher in slightly above-normal temperatures, along with fewer wildfires and more mosquitoes, according to Dave Phillips of Environment Canada.
Phillips says this summer won’t be as warm as last year, but the weather will warm up “when it counts,” in late June and into July and August.
“Generally speaking, it looks pretty positive,” Phillips, a senior climatologist at Environment Canada, told CTV’s Your Morning on Thursday.
Canadians should also brace themselves for what Phillips calls more “rock-and-rolling” weather. “It doesn’t matter what kind of summer you have, there’s going to be some severe weather,” he said.
