Figure 1: Change in mean temperature (C) over Canada in the 2050s from the 1961-1990 historical baseline

Four images that represent spring, summer, autumn and winter.

This is a predictive scenario. The greatest change in mean temperature will be in Canadaís North, and especially evident in the Spring, followed by Autumn (Eastern Arctic) and Winter (Hudsonís Bay). There will also be a significant change in south central Canada, including the Great Lakes area, especially evident in the Summer.

Figure 2: Change in mean precipitation (in %) over Canada in the 2050s from the 1961-1990 historical baseline

Four images that represent spring, summer, autumn and winter.

This is a predictive scenario. The greatest change in mean precipitation will be in Atlantic Canada in the Summer, and the central sub-arctic in the Winter. There will also be an increase over South-Western Hudsonís Bay in the Spring.
