TORONTO—Don’t store those cutoffs and sandals right now; The Weather Network says there are still warm days to come this year.
The network says in its fall forecast that much of Canada can expect a few spells of warmer temperatures over the next month, with wide fluctuations in weather generally bringing mixed weather.
Chris Scott, chief meteorologist for The Weather Network, says many Canadians can expect above-normal temperatures and a moderate number of rainy days.
He says September has so far brought in rain and cooler days, providing some respite from the scorching heat that caused devastating wildfires in BC and northern Ontario and worsening conditions in the prairie this summer.
Scott says the cooler, wetter weather has eliminated the increased risk of fires that persist into this month in some years.
“We were worried that we would go through September, as it sometimes happens, with wildfire season still in full swing. It hasn’t happened. It’s cold out, we’ve had a little rain, so at least we put a lid on it.
In British Columbia, where this summer has recorded the highest temperatures ever recorded in Canada, people can expect normal temperatures in the south and slightly warmer than normal.
Scott said the number of rainy days should be normal, but heavier than normal is expected.
“This is some beneficial news, given that things were so dry this summer, we think we’ll be replenishing a lot of that water supply during the fall.”
The prairie has also seen a reduction in the recent drought affecting crops this summer, while the fall should bring a mixed bag, including the onset of some potentially false winter mixed with warmer-than-normal periods, he said. They said.
Scott said Ontario and Quebec can expect warmer temperatures in the middle of the season, though it’s still a matter of checking the daily forecast.
“The great news is if you want to get out there and enjoy fall activities, a lot of people like to change the leaves as we approach October, and we think the weather conditions overall It would be perfect for that.”
He said to watch though because around mid-November he expects the weather to turn into an early winter compared to the region in recent years.
Atlantic Canada is also expected to see above-normal temperatures, although an active hurricane season is expected to be accompanied by extreme rainfall, while eastern parts of northern Canada are also expected to see elevated temperatures.
