What are the holidays without a little bit of snow? While some of us are keeping our fingers crossed in hopes of a white Christmas, others are praying for mild holiday weather this winter season. Eager to know what’s in store for Canada this winter? Well, buckle up folks, cause we’ve got the long-range weather forecast for the next two months and you may want to know what The Old Farmer’s Almanac has predicted for winter.
According to its predictions, Canadians can expect temperatures to be much colder this year across the board. And depending on where you live, you may see blankets of snow. Will it last? Most likely not due to the chances of above-normal precipitation in certain provinces.
Knowing how Canadian weather tends to fluctuate, it’s hard to be certain. But we’re here for predictions and that’s what we’ll give you!
Here’s the long-range weather forecast for the next two months in Canada by province:
You can expect your winter to be colder than normal in the northern part of B.C and warmer in the south. Coldest periods are expected in mid-and late November and throughout most of December, according to the Almanac. As for precipitation, expect that to be above normal, on average, with snowfall below normal in the north and above normal in the south. If you’re waiting for that snowfall, the snowiest periods are predicted to be in late November, early and late December, and late January.
Snow showers are predicted to hit B.C during Christmas but heading into New Years, we’re looking at a more snowy and cold week.
Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba, your winter is predicted to be colder than normal this winter season. According to predictions, you can expect above-normal precipitation and near- to below-normal snowfall. Right now is predicted to be the coldest period, extending through early December, early and late January, and late February, too. You may see some of the snowiest periods yet, in late November, mid- and late December, and late January.
As for Christmas? Snow!
Oh, Ontario. Your winter is expected to be colder than normal, with above-normal precipitation and snowfall, per the Almanac. The coldest periods will be in mid-and late November (and we’re definitely feeling it), early and late December, early and late January, and late February, as well. Will we see some of that fluffy white stuff? Perhaps. The snowiest periods are predicted to be in late November, early December, and mid-January.

In Quebec, we’re looking at winter temperatures to be slightly above normal in the east and below normal in the west, per the Almanac.
