Winter Outlook

Posted by Kyle Brookings on Thursday, November 30, 2017

The weather outside might not be so frightful this Winter.

For most areas of eastern Canada, the temperatures are expected to be above normal, while we can expect to see below normal temperatures in western Canada.

Most areas will see near normal precipitation.

We are currently in a La Niña watch.

In Canada, La Niña will, in general, cause a cooler, snowier winter, such as the near-record-breaking amounts of snow recorded in La Niña winter of 2007/2008 in Eastern Canada.

It appears this year will not be the case.
