Winter Forecast: Colder over much of Canada



    OTTAWA, Nov. 30 /CNW Telbec/ - Environment Canada is predicting that much
of Canada will experience colder temperatures this winter season. The
prediction is found in Environment Canada's Seasonal Temperature and
Precipitation Outlook for December 2007 and January and February 2008 released
today.

    
    The highlights from the Outlook are:

    - Temperatures are expected to be below normal over much of Canada from
      coast to coast except for Southwestern Ontario and parts of Northern
      Canada where temperatures should be near normal.

    - No clear trends were noted for the seasonal precipitation forecast for
      this upcoming season.
    

    The Seasonal Outlook can be beneficial to specialized users as it offers
advance notice of possible conditions. For example, it allows energy companies
to plan ahead the future requirements of their clients for the upcoming season
which could also influence the energy market prices.
    As the accuracy of long-range forecasts varies from region to region and
from season to season, Canadians should consult the Skills Maps for further
information on the seasonal forecast and should also rely on Environment
Canada's five-day forecast regularly for the latest weather information in the
near future.
    Because weather can vary from one year to the next due to natural
variability, it is difficult to attribute these colder then normal
temperatures to a specific cause.
