The forecast is looking like it’s going to be a great month for Regina residents to get outside and enjoy the weather.
In an interview with the 980 CJME Morning Show, Environment Canada Meteorologist David Phillips said the Queen City will be getting a lot of heat due to a high-pressure system making its way into the province.
He said there will likely be more rain this week but by Thursday the sun should return with highs hovering around 25 C.
Phillips said the city did see some days above 30 C this year already but it would only be one day before cooling off again. There could be a heat wave coming in July.
“We’re going to see a string of them, they’re just not going to go away after one day, you can count on the next day being warm and the day after that,” Phillips said.
He said the temperatures could be seven or eight degrees above normal.
There has also been some much-needed rain in the Regina area over the past few days.
“Farmers have to be happy, there’s enough moisture and with these warm, summery temperatures that you’d expect, well everything’s just coming into play,” Phillips said.
However, it’s not all sunshine and summer breezes on the way.
He said there will be all the ingredients needed for thunderstorms and the humidity could cause some discomfort for people.
