It was a dry month of May according to Environment Canada. Last month, the Muskoka region felt temperatures we would normally see in the month of July with temperatures close to 30 degrees and little precipitation. Meteorologist Geoff Coulson says the rainfall amount was extremely low.
With the today and tomorrow expected to bring showers, Coulson says it will not do much as temperatures will rise again this week.
He expects the trend of dry weather to continue by the middle of the week.
The region has not seen much precipitation as last month only brought 49 millimeters of rain making it the driest month of May since 2005.
