I think they're just going with the default. West is usually hot and dry these days. Not to say that won't happen though.

:lol:

This map shows the anomalies forecasted. Even with 3C below average, SW deserts would remain very hot, but this is not the point.
The question is the anomaly. ;)

Finally, the Canadian forecast...

"The summer may end up being unusually warm to hot across the west, especially from British Columbia to the Yukon Territory," Anderson said. "The combination of hotter days away from the coast and near- to below-normal rainfall may be a recipe for an active fire season."

Sure anomalies but this isn't much of a forecast.

Thunderstorms in Ontario? Dry weather in BC? Who knew!

Good ol' InaccuWeather at their finest. :clap: :lol:

Once again, it shows anomalies...

Dry means drier than normal.
Hot means hotter than normal.
Thunderstorms means more than usual.

I was referring to anomalies as well. Obviously summer is hot and dry compared to winter. I'll try to be more specific next time, lol.

:?: :eh:

Why do you compare with winter? The anomalies shown are obviously compared to a normal/average summer.

I think he means that hot and dry seems to be our prevalent anomaly nowadays, and is becoming more like the new normal.

Is hot and dry really considered unusual anymore? It’s really the new normal in my opinion.

I am pretty new to weather and fairly green in many terms, but I can assure you I don't need to be instructed on what anomalies are. Sometimes when we type things on the phone, they aren't 100% clear. However, others here seem to have understood what I meant both times. So in conclusion, yes I know that hot and dry ANOMALIES are what are predicted, and I am stating that hot and dry ANOMALIES have become the new normal.
