Not everyone can agree on what the seasonal forecast is going to look like.
Environment Canada's seasonal weather forecast suggest that this winter will be warmer and dryer than usual, due to an El Niño situation.
"El Niño is that word we hear every few years where it's a global type weather pattern but it's centered in the Pacific. It modifies weather patterns around the world and in western Canada, it typically brings milder and dryer winters," said Dan Kulak with Environment Canada.
The Old Farmer's Almanac is predicting a much different forecast. It says winter temperatures will be colder than normal, with above-normal precipitation and snowfall for western Canada.
Environment Canada and the Almanac have different methods of predicting long-term weather. Environment Canada focuses on analyzing water temperatures, while the Old Farmer's Almanac looks at solar science, climatology and meteorology.
Fort Saskatchewan and area will be experiencing some snowfall on Wednesday (Sept.12) and Thursday.
