It’s time to face the music, friends. Canada’s November weather forecast is out, and you know what that means — winter is coming.

According to The Weather Network, “November will feature a transition from a mild fall pattern to a colder, winter-like pattern.”

The worst of it will be in western Canada, where colder-than-normal temperatures and “shots of winter-like weather” will dominate in early November.

On the flip side, much warmer-than-normal temperatures are expected in Ontario and eastward to Atlantic Canada, “with temperatures more typical of late September and early October,” says TWN.

Ontario will get a taste of wintry weather come mid-November as the cold temperatures track east across Central Canada, including Alberta. But, “the focus of the cold weather will remain across western Canada.”

However, by the end of the month, the party will officially be over for central and eastern Canada.

“As we head towards the end of November, we expect a shift in the pattern, with the focus of the coldest weather spreading across Central Canada, including much of Ontario and into western Quebec.”

And once that cold weather hits, it’s here to stay through early December, according to TWN. So, enjoy it while it lasts.

As for precipitation (read: snow), eastern Canada may see storm activity pick up by the middle of the month, however, below-normal precipitation totals are expected for the month of November.

Meanwhile, above-normal precipitation is expected across most of southern B.C. and southern Alberta (and it wouldn’t be the first time this season).

Eastern Manitoba, northwestern Ontario, and northern Quebec will also get hit with above-average precipitation.

Well, it was fun while it lasted. We’ll be hibernating in our PJs if you need us.
