Fall 2012 Forecast for Alberta, Saskatchewan, And Manitoba.
Issued 8:48pm Sept 25th 2012
The long hot summer is coming to an end so what does fall have in store.
First a look back at summer 2012
Temperatures were up to 3C above the norm and nobody missed out. July saw the return of the intense humidity last seen in 2007. July saw more tornadoes in the region than the entire United States! Dozens of touchdowns generally in Saskatchewan and the Alberta foothills north of Calgary. A Tornado warning also effected my own community on July 23rd though no touchdown was confirmed.
Now for the Forecast:
Overall the warm and dry weather will persist though shrink in size from east to west. Alberta will be warm and dry overall with normal to cool and dry in Saskatchewan and Manitoba
Rest of September: Very warm and bone dry over the entire region, some of the last thunderstorms of the year here and there
October: Dry and Near to warmer than normal in Alberta, Colder than normal for the rest of the region
Becoming very cold rapidly in the easternmost areas as warmth hugs the Alberta foothills. early snowfall will be a problem over much of the Eastern
Prairies with temps as low as -15C.
November: Warm and dry weather hangs on in Alberta but signs point to a brutally cold and early start to winter in Saskatchewan and Manitoba. Heavy snowfall and potential blizzards also a threat
December 1-21: Lingering heat in Alberta. With record low arctic sea ice there is a potential of very strong -AO values and a very weak jet stream, some areas May see most of this time in a deep freeze while other areas(most likely BC/Alberta) may not see any cold at all.
