We have some bad news: winter is coming and not the Game of Thrones kind. The Farmers' Almanac winter forecast for Canada is here and it doesn't sound good. The predictions are that this winter will be especially cold and snowy in most parts of the country. Get the shovels and boots ready!\nThe Farmers' Almanac is calling this upcoming winter a "polar coaster" with cold temperatures and lots of snow and winter precipitation across Canada. January is looking to be the stand out with lots of storms predicted during the month.\nIf you love winter you'll certainly love this forecast but if you're not a fan of the season, we're sorry.\n"We expect yet another wild ride this winter with extreme temperatures swings and some hefty snowfalls," said Pete Geiger, editor of the Farmers' Almanac, in a press release.\nView this post on Instagram My drive way this morning!!

But that's what could be in store for most areas across the country.\nIn B.C., you can expect chilly temperatures but normal amounts of precipitation. The prairies will be snowy and frigid with Ontario getting most of the same.\nMuch of Quebec will get a wintery mix of precipitation and cold temperatures while the Maritimes will be cold with lots of wet, white conditions.\nView this post on Instagram If we want to travel into the future, we just need to go fast. Really fast. And I think the only way we're ever likely to do that is by going into space. — Stephen Hawking Great 📷 shared by @ianmcalpine ______ Tag your travel companion ✈️ Don't forget to follow @stunningcanadaa and use #stunningcanadaa to share your posts with us, divine pic is coming soon. ______ A post shared by Stunning Canada 🇨🇦 (@stunningcanadaa) on Aug 1, 2019 at 1:06pm PDT\nThe almanac states that in late Januaray and early February, arctic air could cause temperatures to drop to -40°C in the prairies. So double-check that your winter jackets and boots are still good to keep you warm.\nThe Great Lakes region could see above average amounts of snow while the rest of Canada could see the usual.\nThe almanac also predicts that winter could hang on until April in some parts of the country, specifically Quebec and the Maritimes.\nWinter doesn't officially arrive until December 21 so there's still some time to come to terms with this snowy forecast.\nThere are stories everywhere.
