Weather in Canada

The climate in Canada varies depending on the location. In many regions of the country especially in the interior and Prairie provinces, a winter is harsh. The regions may experience daily average temperatures near −15 °C (5 °F) and can drop below −40 °C (−40 °F) with severe wind chills. More in the north of Canada particularly in non- coastal regions, snow can cover the ground almost six months of the year. However the coastal British Columbia can enjoy a temperate climate with a mild and rainy winter.

Moreover, the east and west coast experiences average temperatures in the low 20s °C (70s °F). Between the coasts the average summer high temperature ranges from 25 to 30 °C (75 to 85 °F) with occasional extreme heat in some interior locations exceeding 40 °C (104 °F).
