Alberta has certainly been lucky with its fall forecast so far, with October being a complete spoil for the entire province.
We all know the dreaded snow will be on its way eventually, and The Weather Network gives a taste of what could be in store for the province this winter.
Much of Alberta enjoyed well above average temperatures in September and October, something The Weather Network (TWN) acknowledged in its forecast.
“This fall is clearly unfolding very differently than last fall. The signals in the global pattern continue to point to a near normal start to winter and possibly a colder than normal start to winter from the Central Prairies to western Quebec,” said TWN.
From mid-November until the holidays, it looks like Alberta and Western Canada may be free of any particularly punishing shots of cold, wintry weather.
Looking to January and February, The Weather Network said there is still some uncertainty about the dominant pattern.
One possible scenario is that much of Alberta and western Canada could see colder than normal temperatures, including periods of severe cold-like polar vortexes, similar to what the province experienced in early winter last year.
Just look at the dark blue indicating below seasonal temperatures across Alberta. Some serious bundling will have to be done!
The second scenario on the table is one that would see milder weather across Western Canada and colder conditions from the Central Prairies to the Maritimes.
“At this stage, scenario B seems to be gaining more support as we look at how the global pattern develops. But we’re unlikely to lock into that pattern all winter, so at times we expect the national pattern to resemble the first scenario,” The Weather Network added.
Whatever the case may be, we just know Albertans are already getting ready to trade those summer tires for winter tires and making sure their snow brushes are close at hand. Be prepared!
