Meteorologists with the MétéoMédia weather network are predicting an autumn that will very pleasant for most of Canada right up to the month of November.

Forecasts made public Wednesday also predict, however, that usual weather conditions will prevail across the country come November, with autumn storms and a preview of winter.

André Monette, chief meteorologist for MétéoMédia, notes that near-normal temperatures and rainfall can be expected in Quebec and Ontario this fall, with a fair number of warm, dry days.

British Columbia, Alberta and the southeast Maritimes are expected to experience above normal temperatures, a vestige of what has been a very hot summer in those regions.

Rainy conditions will return to B.C. in the wake of a summer marked by wildfires, while the southern Prairie regions will see lower than normal rainfall.
