OTTAWA, Sept. 4 /CNW Telbec/ - Environment Canada's Meteorological
Service predicts that much of Canada will experience above normal to normal
temperatures this season, as outlined in the Fall seasonal outlook for
September, October and November.
Highlights from the Seasonal Temperature and Precipitation Outlook for
September, October and November 2007:
- Temperatures are expected to be above or near average over most of
Canada. However, below average temperatures are expected over most of
- Seasonal fall precipitation appears varied across Canada. Generally,
wetter conditions are expected across northern portions from British
Columbia to Quebec and along the Atlantic Coast. Drier conditions are
likely for southern sections of British Columbia, the Prairies, Ontario
and in the far north.
The Seasonal Outlook can be particularly beneficial to many users as it
offers greater advance notice of possible conditions. Firefighters may
consider seasonal forecasts to position staff in areas susceptible to forest
fires; merchants to stock up on items such as snowblowers, shovels and
generators; farmers to determine the best time to plant their seeds; and
commodities markets to trade futures in weather-dependent industries.
As the accuracy of long-range forecasts varies from region to region and
from season to season, we suggest that you consult the Skill Maps:
http://www.weatheroffice.ec.gc.ca/saisons/index_e.html for the latest
information on Environment Canada's seasonal forecasts.
Because weather can vary from one year to the next due to natural
variability, it is difficult to attribute these changes to a specific cause.
