well i guess this alright for a winter outlook depending on where you live.

Following is a look at what Canadians can expect this winter:

- Much of British Columbia is expected to experience near normal temperatures. Weather systems travelling south from northern Canada will spread across BC, giving wetter than normal conditions to the northeastern region of the province and near normal precipitation for the rest. Central and northern coastal areas should expect the beginning of the winter to be drier than normal.

- Most areas of the Prairies can expect to see cooler than normal temperatures especially for the beginning of the winter. The jet stream will sink across the west which will allow in cold arctic air. Southern areas of the Prairie Provinces can expect near normal precipitation. Wetter than normal conditions are expected across central and eastern prairies. Normally, the prairie region does not receive a great deal of snowfall during the winter season, however with the path of the systems this winter, Prairie residents should be prepared for more snow than usual.

- With temperatures near or above seasonal for the beginning of winter, Southern Ontario and Quebec may be very messy. The expected conditions could mean a bad start for many winter resorts. Temperatures near or above freezing will create mixed precipitation and any snow received is likely to melt quickly. These conditions are expected to change later in the season when temperatures are expected to cool. Systems travelling along the jet stream and across central parts of Ontario and Quebec will bring wetter than normal conditions. Lake effect snow will be a factor for the traditional Snow Belt areas.

- Atlantic Canada is expected to be wetter than normal. With temperatures milder than normal look for mixed precipitation and messy weather conditions. As a result, it may not be a good season for winter sports.

- For Northern Canada, the below normal temperatures for Yukon and Northwest Territories are good news for the ice roads. Nunavut can expect above normal temperatures and near normal precipitation.
