Fall Officially Arrives Today
Prince George, B.C. – Fall officially arrives at 1:02 this afternoon in Prince George, and it looks like it will warm up a bit.Environment Canada Meteorologist Alyssa Charbonneau says the cool temps of this past week are nearing an end “It is going to warm up, but it’s going to come with some rain. We’ve had some really cool air in the province over the past week or so, it came in behind a cold front and has lingered.”
She says while the precipitation that accompanied that cold front has cleared out, the cooler temps will hang on for today “As we get into Saturday and into early next week, we will see some warmer air move in. Some showers will move in as well, but we have highs of 19 degrees for Tuesday and Wednesday of next week. So we are going to swing from below normal to above normal temperatures.”
As for what lies in store for fall? Charbonneau says the current modelling would suggest warmer than normal temperatures for the next three months “Our forecast for the fall has been pretty consistently indicating a chance of above normal temperatures for those three months, averaged together. The amount is basically in the order of a half degree or so, that’s what’s been showing up, but above normal forecast has been pretty consistent.”
Although the prediction is for a warmer than normal fall , she says there is nothing “really extreme, but that said, when we look at these three month averages, they definitely average out . That’s not to say we won’t have a really warm stretch in there, or a really cold stretch in there, just that on average it will be warmer than normal.”
