Canada is Expecting a Whole Lot of Snow this Winter!
Get ready for a whole lot of snow, Canada. One of Canada’s high-profile weather forecasters has forewarned you.
The Weather Network’s chief meteorologist, Chris Scott, said that after speaking to his forecast team, you should, “buckle up, because it looks like a stormy winter.” He says that this year’s La Nina weather system is strikingly similar to that of 2007 – 2008, when Toronto had its snowiest winter on record. He continued to say that when we have cooler waters off the coast of South America, that’s La Nina, and those winters tend to be classic Canadian winters.
According to the Forecast, residents in British Columbia, the Prairies, Ontario, Quebec and Atlantic Canada should all prepare for above normal levels of precipitation.
La Nina winters usually mean unpredictable weather as one month we may see numerous snowstorms and the following month we may experience periods of milder weather. This weather pattern also calls for a winter that lingers, which means winter may be around for a bit longer than expected as we could potentially see snowstorms in March.
On the contrary, the only region of Canada that will not be experiencing falling temperatures is Nunavut, as temperatures are expected to be warmer than usual with average levels of snow due to global warming.
