What you see is what you get — David Phillips' summer weather forecast


After a scorching hot week in Ontario that ended with some much needed rain for parts of the province, will we see a return to more average temperatures?

That’s the question Shaun Haney puts to Environment Canada’s David Phillips, and the answer might not be what you want to hear.

With warmer than normal weather comes the need for more moisture, but a giant swath of Ontario didn’t get quite what they needed, as the last stretch of hot and humid weather didn’t bring the thunderstorms or localized rain that we usually see.

Farmers won’t complain about a lack of wicked storms and an absence of hail, but was this the last of the heat for the summer? Not so, says Philips, as the trend suggests that what you’ve seen so far is what you’re in for the rest of the summer.
