Residents can expect to feel some heat this weekend.
That comes from Environment Canada Meteorologist Peter Kimball who’s calling for temperatures in the 30s starting Sunday.
“Essentially, weather wise we’re into the warmest period of the year, so we probably will see a few days of 30-plus degree weather beginning this weekend, and it will likely be a whole week of 30-degree weather after that,” Kimball said.
According to Kimball, temperatures are ranging a bit higher than they were this time last year.
He says this could be due to the lack of precipitation we’ve seen throughout the Spring.
All through the month of May, the Renfrew County region only saw around 24 millimeters of rain, which is well below normal.
“Going forward, this weekend should be increasingly warm and dry,” Kimball said. “So, that’s good news for people who enjoy the warm weather, but not good news for those waiting for more rain.”
