A high-profile weather forecaster in Canada said this winter will continue to bring storms similar to the ones that pummeled parts of the country over the past month. Chris Scott the Weather Network chief meteorologist said cold water temperatures in the Pacific Ocean are creating what is known as La Nina conditions. This is when drastic weather shifts occur across southern Canada.
Scott explains that it will feel like a “weather whiplash”, as temperatures and precipitation levels swing between extremes throughout the season. He noted that most of the Prairie provinces and British Columbia are expected to have above-average precipitation and temperatures. The recent flooding caused by the torrential downpours in B.C. is an example of the drastic weather conditions.
The lower temperatures and increased precipitation forecasts will result in an extended ski season in B.C. An extra snowy winter is expected in the Southern half of Alberta and Saskatchewan. Near normal forecasts are forecasted everywhere else.
