First winter forecast for Canada released

We may have a bit of summer left, but that doesn’t stop us from talking about the first winter forecasts to come out for Canada. As always, the Farmers’ Almanac is there, giving us a glimpse of what awaits us in the months to come. In a word? It is rather cold.

Starting in the west, British Columbia could have the mildest winter in the country. There, residents can expect “bright temperatures” coupled with “average rainfall”, which bodes well for those looking to do some skiing.

Moving east, the Prairie Provinces will experience a very cold winter. For this part of the country, the Farmers Almanac uses some pretty strong words, including “glacial” and “snowy.” In a nutshell, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba will become a “hibernation zone”. Yay!

In Quebec and Ontario, things are not much better. With an active “storm track” just below, the provinces are expecting an “unreasonably” and “very” cold winter, with average or above average precipitation in the forecast. So not as bad as the meadows, but still no walk in the park.

Which brings us to the Maritime Provinces. Lying south of that same storm track, these provinces will face “significant chills,” with “winter mix” storms bringing everything from rain to snow to sleet.

So yes, we could have a difficult winter ahead of Canada, if this forecast is confirmed. Well, all the more reason to make the most of the next few months!
