Looking ahead to winter, The Farmers' Almanac predicts that Canadians should expect frigid weather and more snow.

On Tuesday, the journal that forecasts long-range weather released its Extended Winter Weather Forecast which is calling for several winter storms Canada-wide, noting specific areas in the south and east of the storm track, such as the Maritimes, which will see “a good number of cold rains and storms filled with snow, sleet, ice, and rain.”

Areas north and west of this active track — Labrador, Newfoundland, Quebec, Ontario, and the Great Lakes — will more often than not see winter’s precipitation falling as snow, and sometimes a lot of it,” the Almanac says.

A significant amount of snow might fall in Ontario and Quebec between January 20 and January 23, according to the long-range forecaster.  Additionally, “it will be extremely cold.”
