The wet and cool weather, along with some frost, could become the norm for the next week or so.

Environment Canada's Terri Lang says our recent warm weather has gone away quickly. 

"Temperatures are really starting to cool off. It's been warmer over the southeast corner of the province than it has been many places in the province. But now, it's kind of a cooling trend coming along and running a bit below normal for this time of year," Lang said. "The next couple weeks are looking like they're going to be on the cool side. Long-range forecasts going ahead that far, continue that sort of cooler trend."

We have already seen a few cold mornings that required the windshield to be scrapped and the plants to be covered. 

Lang says although it's unfortunate to see signs of winter already, it's not overly abnormal for September.

"It is not uncommon, it is earlier than what we've seen for the last few years. Certainly not a record early frost or anything," she said.

The current forecast calling for highs in the mid to upper teens and rain for much of this week. As we move into mid-September, it appears the summer weather is officially gone. 

However, Lang says the autumn and beginning of winter overall shouldn't be too bad. 

"For the next few months, it's forecasted temperatures to be above average, but below normal precipitation," she said. "Of course, that doesn't mean it won't rain or it won't get cold. It's sort of just a generalization of how things are going to go."
