November Forecast From Environment Canada

Bruce/Grey | by Travis Jackson  

Winter isn't going to be as bad as usual, according to Environment Canada.

Spooky season is over, and as we transition from fall into winter, Environment Canada Meteorologist David Phillips tells us what to expect in Bruce and Grey counties.

Phillips tells us that usually the temperature highs are about 8 degrees in November, but he wouldn't be surprised if we got some double digit temperatures early on, before seeing some white stuff later in the month.

He says that though it isn't expected to be the next ice age by any means, ''winter isn't cancelled'' and that you need to get your snow tires on soon and put away that lawn furniture.

Phillips says that the Old Farmer's Almanac predicted that the winter was going to be ''very, very cold'' but says that Environent Canada disagrees.

He says that winter isn't expected to last as long as previous years, which will be great news for anyone who drives along Highway 21 on a regular basis, or just dreads the thought of shovelling snow.

The official Environment Canada forecast for this winter will not officially be released until December 1st, 2018.
