Shap­ing up for a fine fall in New­found­land, The Weather Net­work pre­dicts

The Southern Gazette - - News -

The Weather Net­work me­te­o­rol­o­gists re­leased their fall fore­cast un­til the end of No­vem­ber on Sept. 17.

Above nor­mal tem­per­a­tures are fore­cast for ar­eas of New­found­land and Labrador this fall with ex­tended pe­ri­ods of dry weather.

Tem­per­a­tures in cen­tral and north­ern New­found­land are pre­dicted to be near nor­mal, while it’s an­tic­i­pated Labrador will be cooler than nor­mal.

Pre­cip­i­ta­tion will be near nor­mal in the prov­ince ex­cept above nor­mal in the south­west and be­low nor­mal in south­ern Labrador.

There is the threat for a cou­ple storms to tap into trop­i­cal mois­ture and that could re­sult in ex­ces­sive rain­fall, ac­cord­ing to the fall fore­cast.

The fall fore­cast in­cluded an up­date on the rest of the hur­ri­cane sea­son as well as a pre­view of what win­ter has in store

A lull in the hur­ri­cane sea­son is ex­pected dur­ing the se­cond half of Septem­ber. It looks like there may be an­other ac­tive pe­riod in the trop­ics in Oc­to­ber.

Un­usu­ally warm wa­ter of the east coast of the United States and Canada is con­cern­ing, as it cre­ates more favourable con­di­tions for the sys­tems to de­velop near the coast, pos­ing a greater threat for com­ing ashore. It also means storms can po­ten­tially keep their in­ten­sity as they ap­proach the coast.

There are ru­mours of a de­vel­op­ing El Niño, and The Weather Net­work is fore­cast­ing a milder than nor­mal win­ter in Western Canada.

From the cen­tral Prairies to At­lantic Canada, a more tra­di­tional Cana­dian win­ter is an­tic­i­pated, how­ever. The Weather Net­work says it could look much like last win­ter, whereby pe­ri­ods of harsh weather were punc­tu­ated by sig­nif­i­cant spells of milder weather.
