Fall is expected to be warmer than normal in Toronto

The Weather Network has released its official 2022 Fall Forecast for the rest of September, October and November, providing a glimpse into what Toronto can expect as the days grow shorter and sweltering heat makes way for brisk, grey blah-dom.

Warm, dry conditions are predicted throughout most of Canada for the rest of autumn.

This is great news for typically-stormy eastern regions like Ontario and Quebec, but not so much for B.C. and Alberta, where wildfire season is in full swing.

Forecasting "extended periods of pleasant fall weather deep into October," Weather Network meteorologist Dr. Doug Gillham warns that the combination of warm and dry weather will likely "result in the fire season lasting later than normal, especially for Western Canada."

For Ontario specifically, we can expect plenty of beautiful days with conditions ideal for enjoying fall foliage.

"However, there are signs that the mild pattern will break down before we get to the end of the season, which would result in periods of more typical late-fall weather during November," notes Gillham.

"Keep in mind, November is the month that typically brings our first tastes of early winter weather."

The weather may normalize, temperature-wise, near the end of November, but the storms we're used to seeing in the late fall months won't be knocking at our doors as much as usual this year, according to meteorologists.

"The months of October and November are also well known for their fall storms," reads the forecast. "This year we expect fewer storms than what we typically see, but a couple that do occur could still pack quite a punch with strong winds and enough precipitation to bring our totals to near normal for the season."
