With such a dry summer, all the rain we have been getting has been a nice change of pace, yet some may be wondering when the snow will fall.
We spoke with Environment Canada Meteorologist Gerald Chang to see what he thought about the weather we have been experiencing.
“It's been, it's been a really wet few days, especially over the weekend, over 16 millimetres of rain on Sunday. It's a wet October right now, though, in the forecast, I don't see temperatures dipping to the point where it will get huge snow. There could be a few flurries, maybe next week, but for now, we'll have to wait and see how those temperatures play out,” explained Chang.
Both this amount of rain and lack of snow is rather unusual for this time of year in North Western Ontario, Chang commented “Well, usually we see about 14 centimetres of snow in Kenora and we haven't seen any yet, so that’s something to think about. But we have seen a lot of rain.”
“So far this month, 106.6 millimetres of rain, and normally we should get about 49 millimetres. So, we've already doubled the normal rainfall total for October, and there's still more than 1/2 month left,” he continued.
Expect to see the rain continue into Friday, but we might get some sun on Saturday and Sunday. Weekend high of 15 degrees on Sunday.
