A tumultuous temperature pattern is expected across the country during the upcoming winter season. This will result in a come-and-go winter for much of the country, with periods of high impact winter weather, interrupted by periods of mild weather. Frigid temperatures will out-duel the periods of milder weather, especially during January and February. Meanwhile, across eastern Canada, the periods of mild weather should be more dominant.
In British Columbia, a stormy pattern is expected to continue across southern B.C. through the winter season, resulting in above normal precipitation totals. This will bring an abundance of snow to the alpine regions, and at times, and significant snowfall across lower elevations, including Vancouver and the Lower Mainland, Victoria, and the Okanagan Valley.
Meanwhile, a La Niña weather pattern in the Pacific Ocean will continue to support an active storm track across southern Canada, leading to above normal precipitation and snowfall for southern parts of B.C., Alberta, Ontario and Quebec.
