Ive found that when the hills get a great start to the season, it usually ends up kind of crappy by mid season, but when the season starts slow, it ends up better.

My observation in my whopping 3 seasons of skiing, too. Here's hoping! (Although I heard Sunshine and Louise got dumped on late today)

Some rain mixed with snow showers at the top of Vermont's mountains on my way back. It was only a few flakes and didn't accumulate but it is the first snow for me this season.

Nikko, looks like you got a big update to do on the freeze list, yesterday Hamilton went down to -2.9, Sarnia went down to -0.2, London froze deep with -5, and Windsor also dipped below 0 but yesterday's high and lows have not been posted yet.

(meant for Nikkos comment, hehe) You have to love that, still no freeze along the coast, my garden and everyone else's are still lush and green, in fact I have to cut my lawn today or tomorrow, still growing like a weed. Today is beautiful, it is currently 15 at YVR and 17 in White Rock and Agassiz, with pure sunshine! Tomorrow is suppose to be a repeat.

Nice in the interior as ell with 15 in Kamloops and 16 in Penticton.

It is way below normal in the Maritimes - much of NS saw high temperatures of 2 degrees when the norm is about 10 degrees. The normal low in many of these places is 2-4 degrees. Seems like it's been a little cooler than normal there for a while. It's probably not very common to see a night below freezing in Halifax before Montreal.

Meanwhile, tomorrow's also supposed to be 15 and sunny around Vancouver.

If you obsessively watch nation-wide weather patterns, this is pretty typical. It isn't just an old saying, it's true: warm in the west, cold in the east (and vice-versa).

I suspect it has to do with how the jetstream is influenced by the time it hits the center of the continent. Oftentimes just east of Manitoba there's a sharp line dividing "below normal" from "above normal". In fact I can only remember a handful of days in my life where it seems like the entire country is either above or below normal.

I'm sure someone that's studied this on a more formal basis (ie: not just looking at maps every day) can provide firmer facts.

Pretty fantastic day in Winnipeg today. Got up to around 14 or 15C and plenty of sun. I'll take it for early November!

Cold... 6C and sunny!

The weather is turning crappier and crappier(4C below average, the temperature should still be close to the double digits)...It's been 2 months without a new record high. We're due to break one soon...

When there is a large trough of low pressure in the west there is often a large ridge of high pressure in the east (or vice versa). So it does tend to always balance out and it is definitely rare that the entire country would ever see well above or well below normal temps at the same time. I have a Masters degree in Climatology so I figured I should chime in.

Is this because of some peculiarity in the landmass that the country is "split" in 2 so often? Or is it just that air masses form up in sizes that roughly correspond to half of the country? Or am I reading too much into it?

Only 2 degrees in St. John's today, I actually had to scrape off my car this morning and there was snow on the ground for a few hours. It's suppose to warm by Friday and I don't think I've ever been so happy to see 14 degrees and rain forcasted for the weekend.

If this is a sign of how winter is going to be... bring it on! Currently 3C but we're supposed to go to 11C today. Yup, I'm enjoying this!

Totally agree a bout the snow thing and i was just thinking the same!....... I cant wait. I love how we have about 15 (mountain) ski hills within a 3 hours drive! I may be exxagerating about the 15 number.....it is probably more like 13.... lol. I moved here for the snowboarding.

5. Sunny, warm
6. Sunny, warm
7. Sunny, warm
8. Sunny, warm
9. Sunny, warm

So far November has been the same. It is great for a guy like me who bikes to work!
It almost makes up for the crap summer.

Outstanding day in the Victoria region again.

What stands out is how warm it was first thing this morning - much of the city is sitting at 16 right now in the bright sunshine

Same tomorrow, with possible isolated showers late afternoon = perfect fall day. Maybe even see a rainbow tomorrow!

I hope we make it to December without freezing - for what its worth the (WN) two week forecast looks promising - lots of sun and mild temps
