Late summer weather to linger, says forecast


OAKVILLE, Ont. – Autumn will bring near to above seasonal temperatures across much of Canada, according to this year’s Fall Forecast from The Weather Network.

It says late summer weather is expected to linger into autumn from the Great Lakes to Atlantic Canada, although mixed in with temperature swings that are typical of the season.

The network’s forecasters say the Prairies will experience seesawing temperatures which will average out close to normal for most places.

British Columbia and Yukon are expected to see above normal temperatures this fall, with above normal precipitation for much of the West Coast.

Precipitation is expected to be “near normal” for the most of the country, although central and northern coastal regions of Vancouver Island and much of the Yukon can look forward to “above normal” levels.

But while Fall will begin with a “lingering touch of summer for many Canadians,” The Weather Network chief meteorologist Chris Scott says stormier weather is expected to develop through the season, “which could mean an early taste of winter for many regions.”
