They predict that British Columbia in particular will have slightly warmer than normal temperatures for fall. 

“While fall will include stretches of dry weather, periods of wet weather will overdeliver with above normal rainfall expected for coastal areas,” states the forecast for the region. 

BC is also expected to have higher than average precipitation along the coast, and near normal everywhere else. 

Last month, AccuWeather released their long-term fall forecast, also predicting warmer than average temperatures for BC with a slower than normal transition from summer to fall. 

Meanwhile, Victoria has already been the recipient of copious rainfall and cloudy weather, with temperatures dropping to 10°C at night

Stay dry out there!
