With a winter expected to be the victim of a big chill and lots of snow, it might be time to buy a snowblower.

We’re in for unseasonably cold conditions and lots of snow in Ontario this winter, according to the Canadian Farmers’ Almanac.

The winter of 2015–2016 is looking like a repeat of last winter with colder than normal temperatures and snowier-than-normal conditions in Ontario, Newfoundland, Labrador, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick and Quebec.

It will be closer to normal in western Quebec, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta with intervals of unseasonably mild temperatures with some periods of bitter cold.

In British Columbia, Farmer’s Almanac is predicting milder than normal temperatures and near-normal winter temperatures in the Yukon, Northwest Territories, and Nunavut.

The Canadian Farmers’ Almanac fall weather predictions for Ontario for the next couple of months:


20-23 Heavy precipitation spreads in from west.

24-27 Clearing, followed by colder temperatures.

28-31 Fair, then rain, possibly mixed with some wet snow, followed by clearing and cold temperatures.
