Balmy summers in Newfoundland and Labrador

Located on the far eastern shores of Canada, Newfoundland and Labrador looks out to the vast North Atlantic Ocean. This coastal position gives the region an unpredictable marine climate that manages to avoid the extremes in temperature that are found elsewhere in Canada. Summers here are balmy, with temperatures in the 60s on the island of Newfoundland, rising into the high 70s in Labrador. Winters can be harsh, with much snow and cold winds from the Atlantic sending temperatures plunging, so be sure to wrap up warm.
