Weather Network predicts warmer than usual fall for B.C.

The Weather Network’s meteorologists have released this year’s Fall Outlook

OAKVILLE, ON/CNW/ – The Weather Network’s meteorologists have released this year’s Fall Outlook, forecasting the months of September, October and November. In addition, it’s releasing a winter preview giving Canadians a glimpse of what to expect.

As was the case in the summer, British Columbia is expected to continue experiencing above normal temperatures this fall and near normal precipitation for most of the province.

Temperatures will be Above normal except for the extreme north and southeast; where near normal temperatures are expected.

Precipitation will be above normal for Haida Gwaii, and from the north coast and northern central coast inland to Williston Lake. Below normal in extreme south-central areas.

Winter Preview

Meteorologists are monitoring developing El Niño conditions in the Pacific Ocean, which generally have an impact on late-fall and early winter weather in North America.

While El Niño can often mean a warmer winter for Canada, that’s not necessarily the case this year.

The Weather Network meteorologists are favouring a weak El Niño developing, which could result in a continuation of the patterns experienced this past summer and anticipated for this autumn.

If a weak El Niño develops as forecasted, the odds favour winter temperatures to be on the lower side of normal from Manitoba east to Quebec, with British Columbia seeing above normal temperatures.
