Weather Network Report Says BC Is In For "Mild Autumn Season" This Year

Don't worry, it's nothing we can't handle.

Summer has ended, the leaves are starting to change, and the cold weather is upon us. But it doesn’t look like it’s going to be that harsh for us this fall. The Weather Network has released B.C.'s fall forecast and it seems manageable. Now it’s time to get your PSL on with a couple of friends while you go romping around a pumpkin patch—too cliche? 

This year has been a wild ride in terms of weather; especially this summer. In B.C. we have seen everything from nickel-sized hail to snow on the highways. We seriously wish we were making this up. 

Some places in our beautiful province even saw four weeks worth of rain in just five days. 

Thankfully, the drastic weather changes will be slowing down a bit as we move into fall. In order to make sure we are prepared for everything, the Weather Network as released a report regarding fall weather. 

The experts know what they are talking about and we sincerely hope they are right with this one because according to the report, B.C. is anticipated to have a mild autumn season this year. 

The official 2019 Fall Forecast is looking positive for us here in the west. In a map published by the Weather Network, it looks as though the warmer temperatures will be sticking around B.C. for a while. 

Across our province, we can expect to feel pleasant temperatures until winter inevitably makes a debut. Temperatures aren’t expected to dip in B.C. by much but they will be dropping to the “mild side of normal.” Nothing we can't handle. 

Average temperatures in Vancouver for the rest of September will be around 19°C. In November, the average temperature will drop to 7°C. 

In terms of rain, expect to see a “near-normal” amount with some areas of the province experiencing wetter than normal outcomes. 

Thankfully, we won't have to worry about snow just yet. According to the Farmer's Almanac, winter won’t be that bad either and we can expect “close to normal” temperatures and snowfall.
