As summer holidays wind down for kids, Environment Canada is predicting a warm August.
 
July ended off on a hot note and it looks as though that will continue for most of August.
 
"Temperature wise, we're looking for somewhat seasonal or a little bit warmer temperatures throughout the month of August, on average," said Dan Kulak, a meteorologist with Environment Canada.
 
Temperatures are anticipated to hover around the 25 to 30 degree range until the fall cool down begins.
 
Midway through August, meteorologists are predicting more cloudy skies with daytime highs expected to dip to the low 20's and high teens.
 
Last year, August was warm and windy, with temperatures staying mostly in the mid to high 20's and the wind gusting into the 30's and 40's for most of the month.
 
Farmers are hoping that this year, the weather will cooperate more with harvest season to make up for last year's agricultural disaster. Kulak said it's still too early to predict the precipitation patterns for the final days of August and into September for Harvest 2017.
 
So far for August long weekend, the weather is looking fair with just a few showers on Saturday, but sunny for Sunday and Monday in the mid to low 20's.
