With less than two weeks left of summer, the season is slipping away in parts of Canada. Frost is beginning to appear in both the west and the east.
Environment Canada issued frost warnings Monday night in northern Alberta, southeastern Saskatchewan, southwestern Manitoba and central Newfoundland.
And another sign of cool, fall-like weather could soon be on the way. Later this week, flurries -- and possibly snow -- could dust the Alberta foothills.
Early frost has already appeared in parts of Canada over the late summer this year. The frost is worrying farmers, particularly in the Prairies, where heavy rains since the spring have devastated crops.
Eastern Canada is also starting to feel frosty. But while New Brunswick was at risk of frost on Saturday night, cloud cover kept the frost away.
The ideal ingredients for frost to form are clear skies, light winds, and cool temperatures.
