Frequent snowstorms to slam eastern Canada – Get ready Montreal!
This winter is expected to play out much differently across eastern Canada than it did last year, when mild conditions and below-normal snowfall dominated.
“The upcoming winter will likely be a stormy one across eastern and Atlantic Canada, especially during January and February,” AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Brett Anderson said.
“This pattern will lead to a higher probability of significant snowfall events from eastern Ontario through Quebec and into New Brunswick and Newfoundland,” he said.
This includes some of Canada’s largest cities such as Montreal, Ottawa and Quebec City.
The forecast is good news for ski resorts across the region that had a slow season last year due to mild weather and below-normal snowfall.
“I expect this upcoming ski season to be significantly better than last winter’s,” Anderson said.
Meanwhile, areas closer to the relatively warmer ocean water will receive more than just snow.
“Areas such as Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island will see constant battles between snow, ice and rain,” Anderson said.
