More Dryness Expected for Southwestern Alberta this Fall

Mostly typical precipitation and temperatures are expected for the bulk of Western Canada this fall, although more dryness could be in store for a portion of Alberta still badly in need of relief. 

The Weather Network’s seasonal outlook suggests the months of October and November will bring drier than normal weather to the extreme southwestern portion of the province, including around Calgary. Near normal precipitation is expected elsewhere in Alberta but continued dryness in the south is more bad news for many farmers in the area who are coming off another poor production season caused by drought. 

As of the end of August, much of southern Alberta was already being impacted by a mix of severe to exceptional drought. 

The Weather Network’s long-term outlook also indicates the likelihood of generally warmer-than-normal temperatures in Alberta for the fall season, with a period of much colder temperatures preeceding a return to milder conditions for the end of autumn and the beginning of winter.
