After experiencing the sunniest summer on record since 1967, Victoria is in for a cooler, rainier Fall, according to the Weather Network

For many, this is an exciting change from the dramatic weather and temperatures we experienced this summer.

According to the Weather Network’s 2021 Fall Forecast, mild temperatures are expected for the end of fall and through December. 

The report also suggests consistent cold weather hitting western Canada will be delayed. This means we still have some sunshine to look forward to!

While most of Canada has seen an early arrival of cooler early fall weather, warm weather is not finished with much of Canada just yet,” the Weather Network said in its report.

“Late September and October will feature extended periods of pleasant fall weather with near seasonal or above seasonal temperatures.”

The report indicated BC would see near normal temperatures, but southern areas should be slightly warmer than normal.

“A typical number of fall storms and rainy days are expected, but this should result in above normal precipitation totals as moisture-laden systems will bring a heightened risk for excessive rainfall at times.” 

However, once this weather comes, we can expect above normal precipitation throughout the season. 

Time to break out the rain boots!
