Don’t let what has been a shovel-free November (so far) fool you: Winter is coming and apparently it is packing a bit of a punch.
Meteorologists with the Weather Network presented their three-month outlook for all of Canada on Monday, and they warn conditions won’t really compare with last year’s tame winter.
Prince Edward Island, like most of Atlantic Canada, should encounter above normal temperatures and with that, above normal precipitation for the three-month period starting in December, the Weather Network predicted. The average high temperature for Charlottetown will be around minus two degrees Celsius, and the average low will be minus 10, and Charlottetown should receive around 209 mm of precipitation during that period.
The meteorologists issued a three-month outlook for all of Canada, predicting a rather typical Canadian winter.
It will be a winter of alternating weather patterns, such as periods of calm followed by a winter storm.
Most of Atlantic Canada, including P.E.I., Nova Scotia, most of Newfoundland and southeastern New Brunswick are in line for a winter of above normal temperatures with the rest of the region experiencing near normal temperatures, the Weather network is predicting. It also predicts P.E.I, Nova Scotia, eastern New Brunswick and western Newfoundland should get above normal precipitation while the rest of the region should get near normal precipitation.
