After a dreadful start to spring, Islanders can look forward to a typical run-of-the-mill summer.

That’s the message from meteorologist Doug Gillham with The Weather Network.

“We don’t expect an especially hot summer,’’ Gillham said Tuesday morning. “Just near normal temperatures would be such a welcome change to what you’ve seen during the past four to six months.’’

Gillham said Islanders can expect a return to cooler-than-normal wet weather this coming weekend but that their models aren’t showing anything out of the ordinary for the rest of June, July and August.

P.E.I. Falls into the 'near normal' category this summer while southern areas of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick are expected to see warmer than normal temperatures.
