Climate

The Embrun community experiences a continental climate that includes short springs and autumns, humid summers and cool winters. Summers in this place often last around five months long, while winters are approximately four to four and a half months in length. Spring and autumn are typically shorter. The first snowfall for the year often takes place during mid-to-late November, though snow does not really cover the ground till December.

Prior to that, snow often melts at the very moment that it reaches the ground. During the spring season, the snow often begins to melt in the month of March, but infrequent “warm breaks” whose temperatures are as high as 50 degrees F (10 degrees C) often take place one to two times in both January and February. Moreover, it is during this season that the place has a tendency to smell of the manure of cows, and run-off into Castor River starts.

In recent years, the winter has become a lot warmer; therefore, it is usually during the winter that freezing rain takes place. As a result, driving becomes extremely dangerous and school buses are usually cancelled. In addition, this season makes the streets so icy for a couple of days. Humidity is common in the summer, particularly in July. Temperatures are often only below 86 degrees F (30 degrees C), but it could feel as hot as at least 35 degrees C due to the humidity.
