Atlantic Canada In For Mild, Wet Fall Season

We have a little less than two weeks until the official start of fall and Accuweather has come out with the forecast for the upcoming season.

Brett Anderson of the weather agency says much of Atlantic Canada will see above normal temperatures during the fall months because of higher than normal ocean temperatures surrounding Atlantic Canada and the jet-stream pattern which they think will come in from more of a southwesterly direction instead of northwesterly.

"That same type of pattern also delivers storm systems so we do think it's going to be wetter than normal especially across Quebec into western parts of New Brunswick and then up into parts of Labrador," says Anderson.

When it comes to when we'll really start seeing the chilly temperatures, Anderson says that we may have to wait until December before things really get cold in our area.
