Canada has four seasons. Canadian winters (December, January and February) are cold and long, and they can be severe1 with heavy snowfalls and temperatures below freezing point in most of Canada. In most provinces snow can cover the ground almost six months of the year. But along the Arctic Circle,
average temperatures are below zero for seven months a year and nine months of snow cover (or more) is the norm.
Across the central and southern areas of the country enjoyable spring weather usually arrives in May, bringing carpets of amazingly beautiful wild flowers. Because of the warm ocean currents along the British Columbia coastline, spring begins there in February.
Summer begins in late May in most areas, and lasts till September. The hottest months are July and August, especially in the south and across the central plains.
During the summer months the southern provinces often experience high humidity and temperatures higher than 30 degrees Celsius. South-western and south-eastern Canada has a lot of rainfall, but the prairies are dry.
Autumn is a beautiful season with bright leaves, and for many travellers, the months of September and October are the best time to visit Canada, as most days are cool and pleasant.
There are four seasons: spring (March to May), summer (June to August), autumn (September to November) and winter (December to February).
Summer is a warm season with some showers and rain. The average temperature is around 14 °C. Temperatures can reach up to 30 °C on some days, but very rarely. Southern England offers the best weather, as it is the sunniest part of the UK. July and August are normally the warmest months in the UK.
