Hot drop in Ottawa forecast, weather agencies predict

A warm fall is predicted for the city of Ottawa as the leaves begin to change for the new season.

The Weather Network and Environment Canada are both predicting above-season temperatures for Ottawa and eastern Ontario through the fall, with below-average precipitation.

The Weather Network published its fall forecast on Tuesdaycalling for above-season temperatures for much of the fall season, with temperatures returning to “typical late fall weather” in November.

“Warmer than normal temperatures are expected to dominate much of the fall season, with long stretches of pleasant weather continuing through October,” the Weather Network said.

“However, there are signs that the soft pattern will break down before we get to the end of the season, resulting in more typical late fall weather periods in November. Keep in mind that November is the month that usually brings our taste of early winter weather.”

Forecasts from the Weather Network indicate that fewer storms than “we usually see” are expected in Ontario this fall, but the torque that is occurring could be enough to bring precipitation back to near normal levels for the season. Ottawa typically sees 19cm of snow in November, according to The Weather Network.

The Weather Network reports that normal monthly high temperatures in Ottawa are 21.1 C in September, 13.2 C in October and 5.7 C in November.

Environment Canada’s fall forecast released September 1 calls for above-normal temperatures through September, October and November, with below-normal rain and snowfall over the three-month period.
