Warmer than normal autumn expected in most parts of the country


Toronto — Don’t store these cutoffs and sandals yet. According to the Weather Network, it’s still a warm day this year.

The network predicts that fall, saying that much of Canada can expect some spells of warmer temperatures next month or so, mixed with the large fluctuations in weather that seasons usually bring.

Chris Scott, chief meteorologist at The Weather Network, says many Canadians can expect higher than normal temperatures and typical rainy days.

He said September has so far brought rainfall and cool days, causing catastrophic wildfires in British Columbia and northern Ontario, and some relief from the heat wave that caused the prairie’s dryness this summer. Stated.

Scott says the cool, rainy weather has put an end to the increased fire risk that will continue into the month in a few years.

“I was worried that the wildfire season was still in full swing and would pass September. It wasn’t. It was cool and it rained a bit, so at least I closed it.”

British Columbia, which recorded the highest temperature ever recorded in Canada this summer, is expected to have near-normal and slightly warmer temperatures in the south.

Rainy days should be normal, but expected to be heavier than normal, Scott said.

“Given that things were very dry this summer, that’s some good news. I think we’ll replenish that water supply a lot throughout the fall.”

Prairie also saw mitigation of the drought that hit the crops this summer, but he said autumn should bring a mixed bag that includes warmer than usual times and the possibility of a false start in winter. ..

Ontario and Quebec are expected to get hotter in the middle of the season, but it’s still a case of checking daily forecasts, Scott said.

“Many people like to change their leaves in October if they want to go out and enjoy autumn activities. I think the overall weather conditions will help that a lot.”

But by mid-November, he said he should be careful, as he expects the weather to shift to the beginning of winter earlier than the region has seen in recent years.

Canada in the Atlantic Ocean is also expected to be hotter than normal, but heavy rainfall can occur during the hurricane season. Temperatures are also expected to rise in eastern northern Canada.
