Here's When Every Province Should Brace For The First Snowfall Of This Year's Early Winter

Spoiler alert: winter is coming sooner than you'd like.

It's only a matter of time until winter in Canada arrives and the long-range forecast from the Farmers' Almanac reveals when you can expect the first flakes of snow, with some provinces getting an early blast of the season.

For Ontario, the first taste of winter comes at the end of October as stormy weather moves into the Great Lakes region, potentially bringing wet snow with it.

Also at the end of October, storms are forecast to bring wet snow to Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and P.E.I. Over in Newfoundland, the first blast of winter weather is expected at the beginning of November with wet snow threatening to fall for a few weeks.

For the Prairies and B.C., some snow is possible on or just before Remembrance Day in November.

As for the upcoming winter season as a whole, the Farmers' Almanac is forecasting a "frosty flip-flop" for Canada with times of frequent storms and then quieter periods. Temperatures are expected to be below normal pretty much nationwide.

It's never too early to start preparing for winter in Canada and the season could be colder than expected because of a weather phenomenon called La Niña.

The World Meteorological Organization has forecasted that there's a 40% chance La Niña might emerge between September and November and then re-emerge from November to January. This phenomenon is the large-scale cooling of the sea surface temperatures in the Pacific Ocean, which can affect weather around the world.
