After a chilly start to the week, temperatures are expected to remain below average at around 0 degrees for the start of November.   

Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) meteorologist Terri Lang explains.  

“We are running below seasonal averages. Average daytime highs around this time of year are about +4 C and overnight lows around –7 C. So, we know we're running below average, and that pattern looks to continue for the rest of the week.”  

It's looking like we could finally enter seasonal temperatures after Saturday. Lang also added there is a chance for some precipitation this weekend.

“Looks like we may have a weather system move through on the weekend and bring some snow. But we're keeping an eye on that one because we know the weather models can push it north or push it south, so keep an eye out for that.” 

As mentioned earlier, October got off to a warm start, but things cooled off with some snow falling in the area, which is not uncommon.
