A simulation of projected changes in annual mean precipitation from the period 1961 to 1990 to the period 2040 to 2060 for Canada is shown on this map. In general, precipitation would increase as the century progresses and the climate warms and this is reflected in the annual average pattern. Also, the simulations show there are regions of both increasing and decreasing precipitation. Warmer surface temperature would speed up the hydrological cycle at least partially, resulting in faster evaporation and more precipitation.

A simulation of projected changes in winter (December to February) precipitation from the period 1961 to 1990 to the period 2040 to 2060 for Canada is shown on this map. In general, precipitation would increase as the century progresses and the climate warms. Projected precipitation changes are not evenly distributed geographically or seasonally. Precipitation is projected to decrease slightly for some higher latitude regions.

A simulation of projected changes in mean annual precipitation from the period 1975 to 1995 to the period 2040 to 2060, is shown on this map. On average, precipitation increases, but it is not evenly distributed geographically. There are marked regions of decreasing, as well as increasing precipitation, over both land and ocean. Annual average precipitation generally increases over northern continents, and particularly during the winter.

A simulation of projected changes in summer (June to August) temperatures from the period 1961 to 1990 to the period 2040 to 2060 for Canada is shown on this map. The temperature changes would not be evenly distributed geographically. The model shows broadly similar but weaker and less geographically structured pattern than the winter pattern, which is warming for the interior and northern parts of the country. Temperatures would generally increase as a consequence of the projected increase in greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere.

The map shows the annual mean total precipitation. Over much of the continental interior of Canada, precipitation reaches its annual maximum in the summer months and falls as rain. October marks the transition from mainly rain to snowfall across northern Canada.
