When it comes to precipitation June was completely average in the Cariboo.
That despite some recent downpours this past long weekend.
Doug Lundquist is a Meteorologist with Environment Canada…
“We went from cool and wet to scorching hot and dry and then back to cooler and wet again, so when you add it up we were about a third of a degree above average for temperature and for precipitation we had 62 millimeters, we usually get 59. You can’t get closer to average which is perhaps the interesting story of the month, a month is made up of ups and downs and it can end up dead on average.”
Lundquist says July has started out pretty wet as well but he says that too is normal…
“It’s typical for us, the first few days of July are usually on the wetter side, but we’re in the transition to the more kind of mid-summer type weather which is not so much the extensive rains we get in June, but more of that kind of mix of sun and then maybe some showers mixed in.”
Lundquist says after Thursday’s hot weather things are expected to cool off for Friday and Saturday.
He says the next week temperatures should return to the low to mid 20 range.
