Find Your Forecast

    Wednesday, December 18, 2013, 1:36 PM -

    The Weather Network’s meteorologists have checked the weather twice to find out if conditions for Christmas will be naughty or nice.

    A white Christmas is likely for much of the country, meaning snow cover of two centimetres or more on Christmas morning at 7:00am. A notable exception is the South Coast of B.C. which will likely see a typically green Christmas. East of the Rockies and most of the Prairies will see a white Christmas, although some areas close to the U.S. border may have only a small amount of snow on the ground.  Across Eastern Canada, a messy pre-Christmas storm will eat away at some of the recent snow from Southern Ontario through Atlantic Canada, but most regions will still have some snow on the ground Christmas morning.


    Weekend weather systems

    Travellers and last-minute shoppers across the country should be aware of storm systems this weekend bringing a variety of conditions. A fast moving weather pattern will lead to yo-yoing temperatures across Western Canada. While cold air will dominate much of the region this weekend, a system dropping through B.C. into Alberta early next week will briefly boost temperatures before another blast of arctic air settles across the Prairies for Christmas Eve.

    Meanwhile, a stormy weather pattern is expected for Eastern Canada, leading to travel headaches this weekend as a moisture-laden system moves up from the southern U.S.  This storm has the potential to bring heavy precipitation from Southern Ontario across Southern Quebec and into Atlantic Canada. Depending on the exact location, heavy snow, rain and even freezing rain is possible. Plan ahead and check the Beat the Traffic app before you travel to stay safe and avoid headaches and delays.
