It's the first day of fall in Canada but some parts of the country apparently missed the memo and have skipped ahead to winter!
Environment Canada has issued a snowfall warning on September 22 for areas along the Dempster Highway in Yukon and 10 to 15 centimetres of snow with local accumulations of 20 centimetres is expected. According to The Weather Network, this is the first snowfall warning of the season.
Today marks the official start to fall, and in true Canadian fashion, the first snowfall warning of the season has been issued. #YTStorm
Ontario's fall forecast has just been released and it's predicting a total mixed bag of weather this year with a chance of early snow.
According to The Weather Network, the province will enjoy warmer-than-normal temperatures at the start of the season, with the end of September and October creating the perfect condition to get out and enjoy the colourful foliage.
However, the extension of summer-like weather won't last, with a pattern change expected to bring about an early arrival of winter weather come late fall.
In fact, things will be so wintry leading up to the holidays that it could bring more snow and cold than we've seen in the past 20 years.
"This period of colder weather should also bring an abundance of lake effect snow to the traditional snowbelts east and southeast of the Great Lakes," an excerpt from TWN reads.
It became stormy in Saskatchewan and Alberta on Tuesday afternoon, according to The Weather Network, with "torrential downpours, localized flooding, hail of different sizes and strong winds" hitting the two provinces.
Stay safe out there, friends!
