Weather In Canada
Canada is famous for its snow and extremely cold weather conditions. Very few people know that there are 5 major regions in Canada -- the Rockies and Pacific, prairies and northern Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, and the Atlantic region, -- and that the Canadian climate varies greatly with the region and the landscape.
Temperature fluctuations are very high between one season and the next. The mercury may soar as high as 35°C or even more during summers. But during winters, the temperatures may drop even below -30°C.
One can experience rain, snow, icy winds, sunshine, and high humidity all at the same time in the different regions of Canada. This is strange but true! For instance, during mid-winter, a good sweater is enough when you visit Victoria, but when you visit Churchill, you will need to dress much more warmly to protect yourself from the icy winds and the bone chilling temperatures. If you visit Vancouver during winters, you may find that it is drizzling, but when you visit the Rocky Mountains region, you will be surprised to find snowfall. So, tourists must dress according to the weather conditions of the region that they visit. When you are in Canada, learn to enjoy the weather, like the Canadians do. Go skiing in the snow during winters, soak yourself in the warm sunshine or watch the trees turn to a brilliant red, orange, and yellow and admire the beauty of the migrating ducks and Canadian geese during autumn.
Summers are very pleasant, and therefore mid-June to mid-September is the best period to visit Canada; but do not forget to carry your bug repellent, especially if you plan to camp in the woods. Summers are full of excitement and colorful outdoor activities such as vibrant parades, fairs and carnivals. However, if you are planning activities like hiking, fishing and boating, then the best time for your visit is between spring and fall. If you have skiing on your agenda, then obviously you will need to visit Canada during winter season between December and February. During this period, tourists will also get a chance to participate in the Quebec Winter Carnival and other snow related events.
