Goodbye summer, hello fall

Summer is officially over on Saturday as fall makes its debut to usher in winter.

But what kind of a fall will it be?

According to experts at the Weather Network, it won't be that bad.

"Autumn is a tumultuous season, famous for wild temperature swings and powerful fall storms," said Chris Scott, Chief Meteorologist at The Weather Network. "Of course, this fall will include both, but overall, we expect a less active and less tumultuous pattern than normal. This means we'll experience a more gentle slide rather than a free fall, as we make the inevitable transition from summer to winter.”

After a cool start to the season, milder-than-normal temperatures are expected for the fall season across British Columbia.”

But our northern relatives might want to grab an umbrella.

Scott said the dominant storm track for much of autumn will be across northern B.C., bringing above-normal precipitation to that region.

Southern areas will be drier than normal during late September and October, but a wetter pattern during late fall should bring most of the south coast to near normal for the season.

The Prairies have experienced a rather abrupt transition from mid-summer heat to chilly, late fall-like weather, which will continue into the final week of September.

But relief is at hand as experts predict the region will settle into a more typical fall pattern for the middle and end of the season.

The weather forecasters are also calling for fewer rainy days across the country this fall, but when storms do hit they will bring a lot of rain, which should bring many areas to near normal totals for the season.
