This could be a quicker start to winter than what's often happened in the last 20 years.
The Weather Network has released Canada's fall forecast and it turns out the season is expected to end early for quite a few provinces as winter weather bursts onto the scene.
According to the new forecast, most of Canada should see near-normal or above-normal temperatures during the fall — with the warmest weather extending from Ontario all the way to Newfoundland — but that won't last for long.
A pattern reversal is expected late in the season, which means cooler air will be focused on central and eastern parts of Canada.
For Ontario, Quebec and parts of Atlantic Canada, this change in the pattern is expected to bring a quicker start to winter than has often been seen in the last 20 years.
The Weather Network said that these provinces have "become accustomed to very mild Decembers" but there should be a more typical Canadian winter this year, with weather you would expect leading up to and through the holiday season.
Get your winter jackets and boots ready, folks!
