The Weather Network's meteorologists release the Fall Outlook for 2013. Find out what's in store in your area.

"It's a fairly typical looking fall overall," says Weather Network chief meteorologist Chris Scott. "We'll see mostly near normal temperatures across the country with pockets of above normal in some places." Scott adds that fall is considered a transition season, so temperatures can go up and down depending on what week you're in. "Most of Canada should enjoy warm, dry stretches in September, but on cue the weather will start to change quickly as we go into October and November."

"Precipitation will also be mainly near normal with patches of above," says Scott, adding that in some places, November brings some of the biggest snowstorms. "We've also got to watch that Atlantic hurricane season as it will be heating up," Scott warns.

This outlook covers the period from September 2013 through November 2013.
