The climate of Manitoba (Canada)
Manitoba is a province in Canada. The province has a surface area of
650,000 square kilometers, mainly consisting of prairie land. The
inhabitants are French, Indian and English. The province is known for
its overwhelmingly beautiful natural scenery. Most people come here to
enjoy the beauty. Fly fishing, walking, spotting polar bears and
swimming with whales are the gamut of possibilities you can choose
from. Also phenomenal is the aurora borealis which can be seen from
January till March every year. Because the area is very vast and there
are few differences in altitude the climate is subject to both
influences from the north and the south. The ocean has little
influence here, so Manitoba has a continental climate. Both
temperatures and the weather vary from north to south. During the
winter cold arctic air is supplied by means of high pressure areas.
During the summer the influence comes from the warmer south. In the
southern part of the province tornadoes are not uncommon. The southern
part of the province has extremely high temperatures during the summer
and gets a large amount of sunshine for this part of the world.
