Come prepared for hot weather and maybe rain

It’s always a risky proposition predicting the weather more than a few days in advance. But a seven-day forecast suggests that it will be hot and steamy during PREMUS—with temperatures hovering around the high 20s and low 30s at the beginning of the week. So pack some short sleeves, but don’t forget your umbrella, as some rain may be in store. Our best advice: check the forecasts often, especially Environment Canada’s weather information in the link below.
