It's hard to believe it but summer is halfway over and the first day of fall is less than two months away. In fact, the first day of fall is on Monday, Sept. 23, and that's just over 50 days away. For people who are eager to get into the spooky, sweater-wearing season of pumpkin-spiced everything, you may be wondering what Fall 2019 in Canada is going to look like and now we have the answers. 

The Old Farmer's Almanac, which was founded in 1792, is a long-trusted source on long-range forecasting and they have just given us our first peek of what fall will look like. At the start of every month, they release a 60-day weather forecast, broken down into weeks or clusters of days. According to their website, their "long-range forecasts can be used to make more informed decisions about future plans that depend on the weather, from vacations and weddings to sporting events and outdoor activities."

In this case, we've used it to round up all the long-range forecasts they have for Canada. Now we can predict what the weather on the first day of fall, Sept. 23, 2019, will be like. For some Canadians, it looks amazing but for others, there could be snow! 

The Old Farmer's Almanac has divided Canada into seven different regions. According to the almanac, here is what Fall 2019 will look in each of those regions.

Atlantic Canada: 

This region includes Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, PEI, and New Brunswick. According to the Almanac, there, Sept. 23-30 will have rainy periods but will be mild. 

However, they also say that in this region, "September and October will be rainier and slightly cooler than normal."

Southern Quebec

According to the almanac, Southern Quebec includes Montreal, Quebec City, Sherbrooke, and even eastern parts of Ontario like Ottawa, Cornwall, and Kingston. There, Sept. 21-24 will include showers, but it will be warm. 

They also say that in this region, "September and October will be cooler than normal, with precipitation above normal east and below normal west."

Southern Ontario

This region stretches from Sarnia, east to Peterborough, and up past Thunder Bay. This includes Toronto and the GTA. According to the almanac, there, Sept. 21-28 will be a roller coaster week with rain, then sun, and it will be cool. 

They also say that there, "September and October will be cooler and rainier than normal."

The Prairies 

For the prairies, which includes the southern parts of Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta, the Almanac says that Sept. 23-30 will actually include snow showers and be chilly. 

Fortunately, they also say that in this region "September and October will be warmer and drier than normal."

Southern British Columbia

This region covers all of southern BC, up past Prince George. According to the Almanac, Sept. 19-24 will be rainy, and then sunny, and then cool. 

There, the Almanac also says that "September and October will be warmer and drier than normal."

Yukon

Unfortunately for the Yukon, the Almanac says that Sept. 21-30 will bring snow showers and it will be cold. 

However, it's not all bad news. While it may be wet, the almanac says that in the Yukon, "September and October will be warmer than normal, with above-normal precipitation and snowfall."

Northwest Territories 

The Northwest Territories is also in for a cold fall. According to the almanac, Sept. 18-25 will include flurries and it will be cold. 

They also say that in Northwest Territories, "September and October will be colder than normal, with above-normal precipitation and snowfall."

If you are one of those people that is dreading the end of summer, then these forecasts are likely depressing — especially the ones with snow! However, if you are a fall fanatic then get ready, because sweater weather is right around the corner!
