Average fall, mild winter

Canadians can expect average temperatures this fall that will give way to a cold winter in central and eastern parts of the country, according to The Weather Network. But it will be mild in B.C.

The network is predicting Western Canada, including B.C., Alberta, Yukon and the Northwest Territories, along with parts of Atlantic Canada will have slightly warmer-than-normal temperatures for fall because of warmer oceans and wetter conditions along coastal areas.

"We don't think this fall has really wild departures from normal in store," said The Weather Network's chief meteorologist Chris Scott.

He added that precipitation will also be right around the average in most parts of Canada.

"It's not going to rain all the time, it just means that when it rains, it really, truly will pour," he said.

Near-normal fall temperatures are expected in the Prairies, Ontario and Quebec.

"When you look at the centre of the country, for the most part, we think this fall is going to be pretty much bang on normal for temperatures, maybe shading a bit cooler than normal towards the Hudson's Bay lowlands, in northern Ontario, northern Manitoba and northwestern Quebec," Scott said.

A milder winter is expected in British Columbia and the western parts of the Prairies, he said, but it trends colder to the east all the way to Atlantic Canada.

"The bottom line here is a fair amount of winter weather to go around. This looks like a pretty cold winter for much of the central and eastern parts of the country at this point given what we're seeing in the oceans."
