What sort of weather can sledders look forward to this winter? Well, according to The 2024 Old Farmer’s Almanac Canadian Edition, a winter whiteout is on the way!

The Almanac’s winter weather prediction is tailor-made for snowmobilers and winter lovers across the country: snow and lots of it.

From the Atlantic seaboard to Arctic shores to the Pacific Coast—in almost every nook and cranny that typically sees snow—Canadians should expect oodles of fluffy white throughout the season. This will be coupled with seasonably chilly temperatures at or below normal.

Yes, traditional winter weather is coming back. Very cold temperatures are expected for much of Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba. Winter in Southern British Columbia will be remembered for bouts of bone-chilling cold. Snow and rainfall in the area will be near- or above-normal for the season.
