The changing of colours in Canada’s landscape during the fall is always accompanied by changing temperatures.
Canadians kissed summer goodbye on Thursday and welcomed in fall, with the season officially beginning with the fall equinox. It will run until the winter solstice arrives on Dec. 21.
Aside from apple picking, pumpkin carving and fall fairs, what can Canadians expect from the weather this time of year?
To start: warmth, said David Phillips, senior climatologist with Environment Canada.
“Overall, when you look at the temperature, we are delaying the coming of winter,” he told Global News.
“We had a warm summer and that will help keep the fall going.… If you consider that good news, then I think it’s positive news for Canada this fall.”
