With Thanksgiving in the rear-view mirror, there’s no denying that winter is well on its way to Canada.

With the cold season comes heaps of snow, biting winds, and sub-zero temperatures for Alberta, which is par for the course.

According to AccuWeather, parts of Canada will experience a rather mild winter, such as British Columbia, though eastern Canada will be hit by colder weather than normal.


It’s expected to be extra windy in Alberta and Saskatchewan, though it is predicted that the arctic blasts will stick to the eastern side of the Prairies.


“However, there will certainly be some bitterly cold outbreaks, especially during the first half of the winter,” AccuWeather’s Canadian Weather Expert Brett Anderson noted for Alberta.


The Autumn snowfall that the province saw in late September and throughout October may provide a quick start to the ski season for resorts in the Rocky Mountains, though snow totals may actually be below average throughout the entirety of the winter.
