Environment Canada Has Already Issued Snowfall Warnings In The Provinces

As summer comes to a close and cool air slowly begins to seep through the city streets once again, Canadians are clinging to the last vestiges of warm weather.

Some are more fortunate than others. Southern Quebec is set to break all-time heat records this week.

Autumn is a capricious season in Canada. Ideal fall conditions last about two weeks. After that, we plunge into the winter chill.

So it's understandable that so many treasure this time.

Unfortunately for some, however, winter is already here.

Today, Environment Canada issued snowfall warnings for parts of British Columbia and Alberta.

Huge swaths of both provinces are bracing for storms that, according to Environment Canada, will reduce visibility and drop up to fifteen centimetres of snow on some communities.

That sucks.

The affected areas are:


Grande Prairie - Beaverlodge - Valleyview
Hinton - Grande Cache

British Columbia:

B.C. Peace River

Snow will come sooner than expected to Quebec, as well. Some predict that Montreal residents can expect their first snowfall on November 5th.

Thankfully (perhaps), much of Canada will have a warmer-than-average winter. Of course, milder winters are also a symptom of climate change. 

Is a short, cool, regular winter with no global warming consequences or extreme storms to much to ask?
