The locally-based Weather Network released its 2017 Winter Forecast this morning (Nov. 20) predicting plenty of shoveling, icy windshields and delayed commutes for residents this year.
One of Canada's high profile weather forecasters is warning Canadians across the country to brace for a whole lot of snow this winter.
This year's winter could bring the most snow Oakville and the GTA have seen in a decade.
One positive is that The Weather Network expects excellent ski conditions for much of the season in B.C.
The good news is that it is not expected to be an incredibly cold winter with Gillham noting that while the thermometer will dip below -20C from time to time it shouldn't stay down there for weeks and weeks.
Weather Network predicts colder-than-usual winter for Thunder Bay
Like AccuWeather, The Weather Network is also calling for the increased risk of freezing rain for parts of southern Ontario. The cold will be the bigger story across northwestern Ontario with colder than normal temperatures expected. However, the pattern will relax at times. Temperatures should still be cold enough for an abundance of snow and ice, but periods of milder weather and rain will keep the snowbanks from getting as high as they did during the infamous winter of 2014-2015. Scott says Nunavut can expect warmer than usual temperatures again this winter, along with average levels of snow.
For southeast B.C., including the Thompson and Okanagan regions, there will be an above normal amount of precipitation this winter as well.
With an abundance of snowfall and storms expected across the country, Canadians should pay extra close attention to the daily forecast as winter weather conditions can develop rapidly. Canadians can prepare for changeable weather patterns by visiting www.theweathernetwork.com or by downloading The Weather Network App and creating an account for personalized and up to the minute forecast information.
