Incredibly soggy Summer 2012 forecast

By: Mikeman444, 12:59 AM GMT on June 11, 2012

After such a dry winter The last thing I expected was summer being not just wet, but possibly historically wet. Rainfall could pass 1 metre(1000m) in some areas this summer. Already int he first 10 days of June parts of Alberta are nearly a quarter of the way. During July Most of the prairies could be dealing with "jungle" conditions with daily downpours and very high humidity. I'm not expecting any extremes other than rain and humidity. Most areas except the extreme south and east will have trouble reaching 30C due to heavy cloud cover.
