Here's Why It's Been Raining So Much In Montreal This Summer

This year has been one of the wettest on record.
Here's Why It's Been Raining So Much In Montreal This Summer

No you're not crazy, the weather has been way worse and way more unpredictable than ever before.

Think about it, can you even remembered the last time we had 3 straight days without rain? That's because it hasn't happened since the end of winter. The Spring season has been one of the wettest on record.

According to Environment Canada, During the month of May, we had more than 124 mm of rain, which is 43 more than average. In June, we had 135 mm of rain, 48 mm above average! Plus the heavy clouds coverage is the reason why it's been so much colder than normal.    

What's really frustrating is that it's not like we're being hit with a lot of storms, then at least the rain would be only be happening once in awhile. The problem is that it's raining little bit every day, and Environment Canada isn't sure why. 

They say it could be linked to global warming, but it's too soon to tell. 

So basically, if you see the sun shining, get up immediately and go outside, because you never know how long it'll be before it comes back.
