Lloydminster wasn’t the only area to see constant fluctuation in weather through August. Meteorologist for Environment Canada Terri Lang says the weather pattern set up across the province caused the constant weather change in central Alberta.
“That was because the jet stream was coming down that central and northern part of Alberta so that was bringing a lot of storms with it. usually ahead of the storms, you get a little bit of hit and then you get the storms.”
Lang adds despite constant weather change, Lloydminster recorded below-average precipitation last month accumulating 30.6 millimetres.
Lloydminster is in store for above-average temperatures come fall. According to Environment Canada, temperatures from September to November will range from -7°C to 10°C.
“That doesn’t mean it’s going to be sunny and 30°C every day. it just means if you average out the tempature it’s supposed to be above seasonal averages.”
Lang says there is no discernible pattern for precipitation for the fall weather due to the inconsistencies over time.
