Forecasters warning of busy hurricane season

The Weather Network is predicting a typical fall in most of Atlantic Canada.

AMHERST – Amherst residents should expect a typical fall when it comes to weather, says a forecaster with The Weather Network.

The network released its outlook for September, October and November earlier this week, suggesting most Canadians will experience typical fall weather as the country transitions from warm, summer conditions to colder, wet weather leading into winter.

The same is true for Nova Scotia and most of Atlantic Canada.

“In general we’re expecting quite seasonal weather with normal to slightly above normal temperatures, especially in the Amherst area. In terms of precipitation we’re expecting nearly normal amounts of rainfall,” meteorologist Elena Lappo said.

Lappo said the forecast is suggesting lengthy periods of warm, dry weather followed by lengthy periods of cooler temperatures and wet weather throughout the fall months.

“It’s fairly normal to see this pattern of ups and downs,” she said. “You may see a few days of below normal temperatures followed by a few days of above normal temperatures. It’s going to be fairly typical of fall.”

Tthe network is saying most parts of the country should have two rain-free days out of three during the Labour Day weekend.

After that, it’s expected wet, muggy weather will envelope the Atlantic region.
