The Weather Network is out with its fall forecast for southern Alberta, and things look pretty good.
Meteorologist Michael Carter says western Canada, including this region, can expect temperatures to tip more to the seasonably mild side between now and December. “Overall, the fall season is going to be a nice gentle one for us (in southern Alberta). Not really an abrupt drop into winter, but more of a gentle slide. There will be a mix of warmer and cooler periods in there as well.”
Carter notes warming water in the Pacific Ocean will more than likely help keep the fall weather here in the west milder than normal.
The Weather Network’s forecast states most Canadians can expect near normal temperatures during the fall, but from the central Prairies (eastern Saskatchewan) to Atlantic Canada, a cold Canadian winter is expected. Meanwhile, parts of Western Canada can expect temperatures to tip to the mild side of normal during both fall and winter.
Carter says here in southern Alberta there should be plenty of opportunities for people to get out and enjoy some nice fall weather.
As for precipitation, near normal autumn precipitation is also expected.
Carter notes if this fall pattern comes to fruition, that could translate into a warmer winter for some areas as well.
