Near average temps predicted for fall

Don't expect any wild, out of the ordinary temperatures this fall.

Environment Canada's Peter Kimbell said it will likely be par for the course.

"Near average and there is really no El Nino signal to look at this point, the temperatures are neutral, so it's a neutral condition right now in the equatorial Pacific."

He added that might be a silver lining to some people.

"Near average is better than below average I guess for the people who are tired, or remember the cold winter we had last winter and spring, so it's good news."

Kimbell said you may think summer was kind of lousy, but in fact July and August were only about one degree cooler than the average.

    "likely be par for the course" is so "Scientific". Considering the poor record of predictions, and repeatedly "changing" predictions that Environment Canada has earned in the last few years... I guess that "likely be par for the course" is about as neutral and non-committal as we can expect. I have no doubt that the fall forecast will be "modified" several times before Dec 20th. That's usually the way it happens.
