While this month looks like a typical May, get ready to sweat come June and July.

Environment Canada's latest three-month outlook predicts higher-than-normal temperatures for Ottawa overall, but forecasters expect temperatures to stay within normal ranges for the month of May.

"(In) June and July, it's really going to warm up and our temperatures should be well above the seasonal averages," said Etienne Gregoire, Environment Canada meteorologist.

The three-month outlook predicts precipitation amounts to be around normal. But, Gregoire says, it's too soon to tell whether the warmer-than-normal temperatures will mean more severe weather.

"I'm sure we will see some severe weather days; there's no doubt about that, we see them every year," he told 1310 NEWS. "Whether or not it's going to be more than usual, that's kind of a long shot right now."
