Canada Winter Forecast 2017 Is A Grim One, Sorry
Shh, shh. Just curl up under the covers. It’ll all be over by April. We hope.
After a warmer-than-normal winter last year, Canada is due for an old-fashioned deep freeze in 2017, according to the Canadian Farmer’s Almanac.
Most of the country will see a cold or very cold winter, the publication says, with the Prairies, Ontario, Quebec, the north and the Maritimes expected to shiver until spring.
The Northwest Territories, Yukon, Nunavut and the Prairies will see average levels of snow, but an active storm track will dump above-average levels of precipitation on Quebec and the Maritimes.
Another active storm track will bring B.C. more precipitation than normal, but with the temperatures expected to be mild, we’re going to assume that for the coast at least, that just means more rain.
The Almanac also forecasts a chilly February. It said between Feb. 16 to 19, a small, powerful storm near the U.S. mid-Atlantic coast will gift heavy snow to Nova Scotia — potentially up to 30 centimetres — along with powerful winds.
