A roller coaster weather pattern is expected to bring alternating spells of warm and cool weather this fall. While it won't be summer like, parts of Alberta, Ontario and Quebec will be slightly warmer than normal. Fall is generally a drier season away from the coasts and most of the country can expect near normal precipitation. Atlantic Canadians will have to watch for tropical systems as the North Atlantic season picks up.
See below for provincial and regional breakdowns for September 1 through November 30, 2012.
Temperaturesáthis autumn are expected to be below normal for the Queen Charlottes and adjacent North Coast. Above normal temperatures are likely in the extreme southeast corner of the province with near normal conditions elsewhere. Most of the coastlines, except for the southern part, will also experience lower than normal precipitation while the rest of the province can expect near normal precipitation.
Alberta and Saskatchewan
Both provinces can expect a very typical fall season with near normal temperatures and precipitation. The exception calls for above normal temperatures from the southern and southeastern parts of Alberta through much of southern Saskatchewan.
Manitoba will see near normal temperatures and precipitation this autumn.
Above normal temperatures are forecast across southern Ontario, south and east from the Nickel Belt. Near normal temperatures are expected for northern Ontario. The fall season outlook calls for the southern half of northeastern Ontario to experience above normal precipitation with near normal precipitation elsewhere in the north. Precipitation is expected to be near to slightly below normal in places across southern Ontario.
Southern Quebec will experience warmer than normal temperatures with precipitation near to slightly below normal in spots. The rest of the province can expect near normal fall conditions.
Temperatures across the Maritimes and Newfoundland will be above normal this autumn with precipitation amounts near normal and scattered pockets of slightly below normal possible. Near normal temperatures and precipitation are forecast across Labrador.
