As the days and hours tick down the beginning of the summer solstice on June 21, many may wonder what exactly Mother Nature has in store for Oshawa over the next few months.
However, according to Environment Canada meteorologist Gerald Chang, the picture remains fuzzy at best.
“There are no real clear indications at this point whether we will see above seasonal, seasonal or below seasonal temperatures,” Chang told The Oshawa Express, with the statement ringing true for expected precipitation levels as well.
Chang says while it is rare to be unable to even hazard a guess at a long-term forecast, weather prediction at its core is a hit-and-miss process.
“Even with a 14-day forecast, on the second day you are a bit less confident, and by the third day, even less confident,” Chang says.
According to the Weather Network’s current 14-day forecast, Oshawa is set to see temperatures above the historical June average of 22 degrees for the rest of the month, with little precipitation.
