Weather gods, why do you torment central and eastern Canada so?

It's bad enough that cities like Toronto, Montreal and Halifax dealt with a polar vortex and a hurricane-like storm this winter. But now they're set to see a cooler summer than normal, while western Canada enjoys a warmer, drier sunny season, according to Accuweather.com.

Here are the weather patterns Canadians can expect to see this summer.
