According to the 2020 Canadian Farmers’ Almanac, the upcoming winter is going to be long and cold.
“Our long-range forecast is calling for yet another freezing, frigid, and frosty winter for two-thirds of the country,” says Canadian Farmers’ Almanac Editor Peter Geiger, Philom. “If you remember last winter’s freezing temperatures, you’re going to want to be prepared.”
The weather publisher states that people can predict very cold conditions this winter.
“As the freezing air blows across the Great Lakes, intense bursts of heavy snow showers and squalls could, in extreme cases, deposit perhaps 70 cm in just a single day, especially in the snow belt of Ontario. The western third of the country will see near-normal (winter) temperatures,” states Farmers’ Almanac.

The Almanac also calls for above-normal winter precipitation for much of Canada, so the country will be very white.
According to Farmers’ Almanac, there will be an active storm track to deliver frequent bouts of heavy precipitation, along with strong and gusty winds in January. From January 4 to 7 and 12 to 15, people may see copious snow, rain, sleet, and ice.
