Summer & Winter Weather Are Duelling It Out Across Canada This Week
Which season will reign supreme?
Battle of the seasons! With thethis week, it's a fierce duel between summer and winter across the country despite the fact that we're in fall right now. After the week is over, only one region will be crowned the most extreme.
Will there be snow?
If you're still wishing it was summer and trying to ward off, this might be a little disappointing.
There will be snow this week in different parts of the country.
Big parts of northern Manitoba and Ontario will see wintery precipitation fall down from the sky during the second half of the week and it'll be enough that The Weather Network considers it a "nuisance."
Further east in Labrador, parts of the province are expected to get some of the heaviest snowfall across the entire continent.
However, this early taste of the season might not be surprising for people living there. Snow actually accumulated in one town there back.
B.C. is going to be less stormy but there could be some snow in the northwestern part of the province.
However, there is no chance of flakes in the south from Vancouver Island all the way to the B.C.-Alberta border so that's a silver lining!
What will the temperatures be?
Out west, there will be a late taste of summer with the temperatures.
B.C. is about to head into a second warm spell thisseason with temperatures being 8 C to 10 C above normal there and in Alberta.
Some parts of those provinces could actually reach 15 C above normal this week.
It's a different story in Manitoba,and Quebec.
Those provinces will see temperatures that are 5 C to 8 C below normal with cold air dipping really far south. It'll be pretty chilly!
Which part of the country will have the most extreme weather?
According to The Weather Network, the weather pattern moving through western Canada this week is a little bit more extreme than what's happening in the east.
That's because there will be July-like temperatures in B.C.
Snowfall didn't give the east the crown because northern regions usually get wintery weather right at the beginning of October.
It's possible that waterspouts could pop up again in the Great Lakes because of cold temperatures and warm lake water but that also wasn't enough for the east to be the most extreme.
