If you love the summer heat, you’re in luck — it’s going to stick around for a while.
According to a recent statement from AccuWeather, autumn is expected to have a late start in Canada this year, delaying the first wave of cold air for some of the country’s most populated areas.
“Fall will get off to a late start around the Great Lakes and into Quebec as the main storm track allows for surges of late-summer season warmth and humidity,” says Brett Anderson with AccuWeather.
This includes the Toronto area, Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec, and Halifax, the report states.

“This pattern may delay the annual first freeze by a week or two from southern Ontario to southern Quebec and the Maritimes, which would extend the growing season,” Anderson says.
The first chill of the season is expected to arrive sometime in October, so we can expect a relatively warm September.
“Any surges of cold air coming down across the warmer Great Lakes during October may lead to an outbreak of thunderstorms and waterspouts,” Anderson added.
