The climate region for Guelph is the Lower Lakes. The great lakes play a big part in the effect of the climate. During the winter the water causes the city to be relatively mild but cool. During the summer the heat from the water causes the city to be humid. This is why the city of Guelph has cold winters with heavy snowfall and long, hot summers with humid weather. This region also has a lot of precipitation. (Canadian Oxford School Atlas 8th Addition, page 19, n.d.)
