Break out your fall jackets, summer is over in the southeast.
"It's come in with a vengeance," shared Terri Lang, with Environment Canada. "It just seemed like somebody flipped a switch and summer was over. Especially after that heat, it does feel cold. But at least we haven't seen the snow like Alberta has been experiencing."
"We're in an unsettled pattern as we like to call it, meaning there's no big ridge of high pressure that keeps the skies clear and things dry. And with these types of upper troughs, we see a lot of systems moving through so a lot of showers, maybe even some thundershowers thrown in there."
"It certainly looks like Sunday is going to be the wettest day as a bigger system gets itself organized in Montana and spread showers and thundershowers into the southeast corner."
She noted that we are still on the warmer side so there is hardly any chance of snow.
As well, the temperatures, along with the cloud cover will keep the frost at bay.
"The colder air mass is sitting off to the north. I think will sort of slide down early next week so there is a possibility of frost early next week. But over the weekend, with the clouds, warmer temperatures, and wind which also prevents frost from developing, to be frost-free for the next few days."
She added that we'll be seeing temperatures below the normal 19oC.
"So get out the sweaters, but not the snow shovels."
Luckily the worst thing we will see this weekend is a little cold rain unlike parts of the United States which are now experiencing the landfall of Hurricane Florence. Despite being a massive storm, it will have no bearing on weather patterns in the province. Lang did mention that typhoons originating in Japan and surrounding countries can affect weather in the southeast when they get to the western coast of Canada and are sucked up in the jet stream affecting the prairies.
