Expect temperatures to be warmer than usual in August, Environment Canada senior climatologist says

David Phillips, senior climatologist at Environment Canada, said August temperatures could exceed July’s figures.

Temperatures in August should be warmer than usual in Ottawa, Smiths Falls and the Valley.

David Phillips, senior climatologist at Environment Canada, said he can’t really complain about the summer in the capital so far.

“I think it was almost blissfully boring in the Ottawa area,” he said CityNews Ottawa on August 2

Phillips said his model suggests August will be warmer than usual, even warmer than July.

“I think there is still a lot of summer in the air,” he added. “There will be some warm days coming, we’re not done counting those days above 30°C and I think people will be complaining about the humidity.”

Phillips said the average midday high in August is around 25°C and 26°C, adding that it could be drier than usual.

“I wouldn’t write the last chapter on summer weather,” he said.
