It looks like this summer is going to be hot and dry.
Environment Canada has released its summer forecast for June, July and August.
"It's suggesting mild and continuing dry weather across much of Alberta," said meteorologist Dan Kulak.
"It's been a consistent thing. Certainly it has been dry in the Drumheller area. Even looking at April and May, April had a grand total of 4mm of precipitation compared to a normal month of 26 mm," Kulak informed. "May had just under 20 and normally should be close to 50."
That said, Kulak can't predict exacly how much moisture we might receive this summer.
"In general we say warm or dry; It's just looking at the last 30 or so years of data that we have. (With data from) The ten coolest, driest, warmest or wettest years (we calculate) what's left over is basically in the middle and we call that normal in terms of these seasonal forecasts."
