‘Scorching’ Summer for Provost Area Expected
The Provost area weather will be scorching this summer, says long range meteorologist, Larry Romaniuk, who was contacted by The Provost News by phone near his cottage 100 miles north of Lake Winnipeg.
“For month of June it looks like near normal for temperatures and precipitation.” Compared with the hot spell in May it will be cool in early June and showers should appear, providing a good start for farm crops and gardens.
Then in July residents in this area can look for a hot, and “quite dry” period that will have below normal precipitation.
And, says the expert, the hot and dry weather will continue into August and even in September it will be still quite warm but some showers are expected in that month. The precipitation at that time however is expected to be below normal.
Romaniuk says that the warm temperatures will mean an increase in power consumption as people turn on air conditioners and people might be concerned with sunburns because of all the sunshine.
The meteorologist says long range forecasting is still not 100 percent accurate but the credibility is “quite good.”
