The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary say the search is on for the province’s elusive summer season.
Newfoundland police released a statement on Wednesday, "seeking assistance in locating the missing season of summer."
The RNC said the season was last spotted in August, 2014.
"When last seen summer was described as being between 20 – 30 degrees Celsius, blue skies and a bright and warm source of light in the sky," according to the statement shared via social media.
"There have been sporadic sightings of this bright object, but these sightings have been rare since May 2015."
Newfoundland and Labrador has been hit by rain and fog in recent months while other provinces have had record-setting heat. Normal temperatures in N.L. should reach about 20 degrees Celsius this time of year according to Environment Canada, but the province has been hovering at between 10 to 15 degrees.
The RNC said the media release took an off-duty officer all of five minutes to write, adding they wanted to make light of the chilly situation.
Newfoundlanders responded with delight to the tweet.
