Brace yourself for the ’classic’ Canadian winter, meteorologist says

Chris Scott, The Weather Network’s chief meteorologist, says the message from his forecast team is “‘buckle up’ because it looks like a stormy winter.”

Just keep it above the 49th parallel please.

    Those bastard scientists promised us global warming.

      Write to Climate Barbie and complain because she is the “minister in charge of the weather.”

          I distinctly re-remember him as saying “pass the ammunition, and death to tyrants!”

      Global warming? We normally use our swimming pool from 1st October onwards through to late March next year.

      It has been too cold in Brisbane, Australia, to swim even now. This has to be the coldest November (last month of Spring, summer is officially 2 weeks away!) in living memory. I am old, but can still remember.

      I have no doubt whatsoever that we will be told by all of these authorised scientists in early December that “This has been the hottest November EVAH!”

      No, it isn’t. It has been substantially cooler than usual.

        If you are not already reading Jo Nova’s Australian blog about weather issues, then you should be. It’s right up there with WattsUpWithThat in the quality of the reports and articles: http://joannenova.com.au

          Ahh, I religiously look at Jo and Dave’s excellent blog. Wonderful stuff.

      A True Believer™ anthropogenic catastrophic global warmist   global warmist   climate changeist  climate disruptionist would tell you that the global warming has ameliorated what would be a rare random temporary low temperate event and that the global temperature is still looking to rise up to 6°F by the year 2100.

        A True Believer climate disruptionist a Marxist junk science douche

    I have a feeling it’s going to be a cold winter in the GTA but last year when we had the lousy, cold summer like this year’s, that winter was mild as if it was averaging between the two extremes of hot and cold. So I’m hoping it will be the same this winter.

    The obligatory bow to the Globull Warming con artist weasels is at the very end.
    Poor chap would be defrocked if that wasn’t included.

    Are the squirrels extra fluffy this fall? That used to be a point of interest back in Pennsylvania among DIY prognosticators.

    They are expecting the temperatures in San Diego to plummet to the mid 60’s by the end of December.
    We will persevere and still insist on ice skating ⛸ 4-miles North of Mexico.
    That must cost a fortune in electricity to keep that ice rink going for the entire month at the Del.

      DbN, we go ice-skating as a family only when it is blisteringly hot, and of course have the Christmas holidays (normally say from Friday 22 December through Tuesday 9 January at the minimum) to get over any sprains and loss of bark.

      Natural ice-skating would be awesome, but I’m allergic to the cold…

        I always wondered what an actual “white Christmas” would be like.
        It sounds fun!

        • Maurice Miner

          We would be so far out of our element with a White Christmas.

          Then again, a trip to Russia and Trans-Siberian this year should cure that.

        • WalterBannon

          if your idea of fun is having a stroke while freezing your ass off shoveling three feet of snow from your driveway so your visiting relatives can leave you in peace to digest your turkey

          white christmas only looks good, but cold and wet is actually no fun

          You’re better off living vicariously through photographs: I spent 18-years in NY, ten in LA, and 10 in New England and I gotta say, even though I hate Cali for all the reasons everyone that isn’t from there hates it, my God, do I miss the weather…I *never* missed “white Christmas”.

  • Gary

    Keep in m ind that record colds and snow is a sign of Global warming . Dwarfism is the first sign of acromeglia where obesity shows you have Anirexia while cancer means you’re healthy .

  • Tooth&Claw

    Just wait until January/February…then the climate change will hit the fan.

  • vimy

    if you read to the last paragraph they just had to get this in.

    The only region of Canada not following the nation-wide trend is Nunavut, which has seen warming temperatures in recent years due to global warming. Scott says Nunavut can expect warmer than usual temperatures again this winter, along with average levels of snow.

    Time for a snowmobile ! Yay

    The Weather Channel can’t get a three day forecast right, so that pretty much sums up my opinion of these long term liefests.

  • Lightstream

    Well all I can say is, “Shit.”

  • Justin St.Denis

    It will be lotsa fun watching Toronto come to grips (yet again!) with the fact of actual winter. Every year it seems to get worse. “What IS this ABOUT? It’s so COLD! And that WHITE STUFF is really scary! Wuz happ’n’n’?”

  • Man_with_Hat

    48th parallel?

  • John Boy

    I hope all the “Syrian refugees” get the full Canadian winter experience.

      Remember the scene in Jamaican Bob Sled Team where John Candy & the team arrive at the airport in Canada? They walk out the door into a nice 50 mph breeze; snow going horizontal and their breath making big clouds of steam/ice.
