Whether we're ready or not, winter is just around the corner, and the warmth that we have been enjoying will soon be gone. The Farmer's Almanac has given us an inside look on when each region of Canada can expect to see snow, and Canada's winter forecast is pretty different across the country.\nEven though winter doesn't officially arrive until December 21, many parts of Canada can expect to see some snowfall well before that.\nWhile the Weather Network has predicted a long and mild fall this year, the winter is expected to be harsh, with many areas in Canada expecting colder than normal temperatures throughout the season. However, when it comes to snow, when it is expected to fall differs by region.\nThe Farmer's Almanac breaks the country into seven main regions, Atlantic Canada, Southern Quebec, Southern Ontario, The Prairies, Southern British Columbia, Yukon, and Northwest Territories.\nOf course, while there is no way to tell for sure exactly what the winter season will bring this year when it comes to the long term forecast, it looks like snow is in our future.\nAccording to the Farmer's Almanac, some parts of Canada are already experiencing some snow. Unsurprisingly, both the Northwest Territories and Yukon are already seeing some snow. Yet, the Yukon is expected to get some milder temperatures near the end of October before getting more snow in November.\nView this post on Instagram A walk through a snowy park in London Ontario #snowstorm #londonontatio #ontario #ontariosnow #canadasnowstorm #ontarioimages # A post shared by Richard Bain's Images (@bainimages) on Nov 16, 2017 at 6:04pm PST\nWhile Alberta is already seeing some snow, the Prairies are expected to see higher temperatures than normal throughout this winter, with the snowiest periods not hitting the province until mid-November.\nHowever, just because the temperatures are expected to be a bit warmer than usually doesn't mean the Prairies won't be seeing much snow. In fact, according to the Farmer's Almanac, the prairies will see above-normal precipitation this winter.\nView this post on Instagram My sweet little 9 year old couldn’t sleep last night because she was worried about all the people in Toronto without shelter. She was wondering where they were going to go during the snow storm and how they were going to survive the inclement weather. She knows Toronto shelters are crowded and often unsafe, especially for women and children. She has seen these people, face to face, asking for help when we go downtown. She has given them money from her allowance and her “charity” fund that she saves up. She is wondering what else she can do and what else can be done. So, tell me, @johntory @kathleen_wynne what are you going to do about my daughter’s worries and sleepless nights? . . . 📸@toronto . . . #concernedmom #concerned9yearold #homelessness #affordablehousing #torontosnowstorm #torontohousingcrisis #snowmaggedon #torontolife #yyz #thesix #toronto #welovetoronto #empath A post shared by D U L A, ND (@dula.nd) on Jan 29, 2019 at 8:01am PST\nWhen it comes to Southern Quebec, while they may be seeing some snow showers as soon as October 19, the snowiest period won't be until late November.\nEven though snowfall is expected to be below normal, Southern Quebec can expect snow all the way until the end of March.\nSouthern Ontario isn't much different. While Ontario can see flurries as early as next week, real snowfall isn't expected to hit the area until mid-December, which means hopefully we'll be able to see a white Christmas.\nSnow is expected to fall until early March, with the level of snow expected to be normal compared to previous years.\nView this post on Instagram Time to dig ourselves out. #yyc #spring #sunrise #newday #snowstorm A post shared by Lori Andrews (@theoriginal10cent) on Apr 28, 2019 at 6:44am PDT\nThe Maritimes will see their snowiest periods begin in mid-November but some snow might appear as early as Thanksgiving day. However, snow is expected to stop by early February.\nBritish Columbia will be last of the pack, not seeing snow until late December, which means the province might not have a white Christmas. Snow is expected to fall into early February, but April and May will be warmer than usual.\nDespite the forecast, winter can often be unpredictable. So, make sure to always have your winter coat and shovel on standby because you never know when the next big snowstorm is going to hit.\nThere are stories everywhere.
