Believe it or not, Summer is less than two months away. The official start of Summer this year is Friday, June 21 and that means that official predictions for the first day of Summer 2019 are here. Unfortunately, in some parts of Canada, these predictions may not be the good news we are hoping for. 

The predictions come from the Old Farmer's Almanac, a respected source for weather predictions since their founding way back in 1792. They have issued their long-range forecasting for the upcoming month of May and for June for various regions all across Canada and the United States. 

The long-range forecasts are broken down almost weekly, focusing on the temperature and the amount of rain we can expect to see on any given day. Thanks to this forecast we have an idea of what the first day of Summer, June 21, 2019, will look like weather-wise. 

On top of that, the Old Farmer's Almanac also offers an annual weather summary for each region, given a general idea of what the seasons will look like. In their summary, the year goes from November 2018 to October 2019. Thanks to this summary we also have a broader idea of what summer as a whole will look like in each region this year.
