Above Normal Temperatures Expected for End of Summer, Early Fall

With the end of summer fast approaching, the weather is expected to stay nice and warm for you to enjoy.

Environment Canada’s Senior Climatologist Dave Phillips tells Mix News the sun will be out for the next couple of weeks bringing with it above normal temperatures.

He says around this time of year the high should only be around 19 degrees, however, the temperatures will be in the mid to high 20’s well into the Labour Day long weekend.

“Things have been clearly dry and warm this summer and we think that is the pattern that’s going to be in effect for the fall.”

Phillips notes the entire province will experience warm temperatures in the early fall with the first snowfall expected sometime in October.

“We think the flavor of the fall period will be milder than normal which always helps to take the sting out of winter.”

He adds it is too early to predict what the weather will be like during the winter but notes it’s leaning towards a “tougher” season.

‘My sense is it will be more of a winter where we see one of two months are bit tough and the others will be the thawing kind.”

Phillips says people shouldn’t worry too much about the winter as the weather will be quite nice leading up to the colder season.
