A long-range forecast for the weather in Canada in August 2021 has dropped and the extreme temperature difference between the west and the east is going to break down with relief coming to the entire country.

According to The Weather Network, B.C. will still be warm but it won't be as hot as it was in June and July. Some much-needed rain is also coming to the province but, to help drought conditions, a lot of it will need to fall during the typically-dry month.

In the Prairies, extreme heat will relax but there will still be the warm weather that you'd expect during August. The hottest temperatures will shift from southern Alberta to southern Saskatchewan and Manitoba.

After a rainy July, southern Ontario and Quebec are rebounding and getting into consistent warm weather from mid to late August with some scorching days expected and stretches of days without storms. The same goes for Atlantic Canada but there's potential for an active period with more hurricanes and tropical storms than normal at the end of the month.

Summer officially ends on September 22, so you might want to take advantage of what's left of the season before we transition into the fall.

It's never too early to start preparing for winter in Canada and the season could be colder than expected because of a weather phenomenon called La Niña.

The World Meteorological Organization has forecasted that there's a 40% chance La Niña might emerge between September and November and then re-emerge from November to January. This phenomenon is the large-scale cooling of the sea surface temperatures in the Pacific Ocean, which can affect weather around the world.
