Across Canada, snow will be on the ground (or at least in the air) for Christmas Day on the Prairies, Southern BC, Yukon, NWT and Southern Ontario. 

 

Expects temperatures for the winter season to be near to below normal across most of Canada, while parts of Atlantic Canada will be warmer than normal.

Southern parts of Alberta, B.C. Ontario, and Quebec will receive above-normal precipitation and snowfall due to an active storm track. Above-normal precipitation will also extend into Atlantic Canada.

Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba can expect a frigid winter with a heightened risk for episodes of severe cold.

There will be periods of mild weather at times across Alberta, and temperatures may end up near normal for the season as a whole.

Southern Alberta and southwestern Saskatchewan can expect a snowy winter. Snowfall will be near-normal in other regions and the entire region should be prepared for blizzard conditions at times.
