Wednesday, July 13th 2022, 7:06 pm - Precipitation is currently in short supply in southern Ontario, with well-below normal amounts since April. In fact, March was the last month it had seen above-normal precipitation.
They say the grass is always greener on the other side...but it doesn't apply to southern Ontario at the moment.
Precipitation is currently in short supply in the region, with well-below normal amounts since April. In fact, March was the last month where we had above-normal precipitation.
April, May, and June had below normal precipitation amounts with 73 per cent, 63 per cent and 56 per cent of average, respectively.
As of July 12, we're currently 11 only per cent of normal precipitation with just 2.5 weeks left in the month.
Looking ahead, the long-term trend is suggesting we'll continue that pattern throughout most of July, but compared to what fell in recent months, precipitation will be closer to normal.
"One thing to remember, though, is most rain in the summer comes from thunderstorms, which can be pretty isolated, so some areas will be wetter or drier than others," said Matt Grinter, a meteorologist at The Weather Network.
