Pleasant autumn predicted for Comox Valley

A weather outlook for September to November predicts slightly above-normal temperatures and normal rainfall for the region.

The Weather Network is predicting a warmer-than-normal autumn for an area that includes the Comox Valley.

Although recent late August weather might feel more like a preview of fall than summer, a weather outlook for September to November predicts slightly above-normal temperatures and normal rainfall for the region.

According to The Weather Network’s 2013 Fall Outlook, part of the province from the tip of Haida Gwaii down the central and south coasts (including Vancouver Island) is predicted to be slightly warmer than normal.

For the rest of the B.C., they are predicting near-normal temperatures.

As for B.C. precipitation, the Outlook predicts near-normal rainfall, with the exception near Chetwynd south and east through the Rockies and Columbia mountains, where precipitation could be above normal.

The Weather Network’s Chief Meteorologist Chris Scott said it is looking like a fairly typical fall.

“We’ll see mostly near-normal temperatures across the country with pockets of above normal in some places,” he noted.

He added fall is considered a transition season, so temperatures will fluctuate.

“Most of Canada should enjoy warm, dry stretches in September, but on cue, the weather will start to change quickly as we go into October and November.

Although the last few weeks of August have been cool and wet, temperatures will return to normal for the Comox Valley beginning this weekend with the sun emerging, just in time for Labour Day.

Environment Canada is predicting highs of 21C and 22C for the weekend through to Tuesday, with a mix of sun and cloud for the beginning of the week.
