Saskatchewan is part of a western system that will see warmer than normal weather, but still with some cooler periods.
Carter explains that it's just that the milder weather will outweigh the cooler days.
When it comes to precipitation in whatever form it may arrive, Carter expects a below normal fall for the southern third of the province including Saskatoon and near normal to the north of that.
The Weather Network's winter forecast for the southern half of the province is for below normal temperatures, with a system that will settle in to the middle of the country from the Prairies through the western Great Lakes.
There are connections between hurricanes down south and what we experience in Canada. Carter, says the hurricanes come from the warm temperatures over the Gulf of Mexico, which has pumped a lot of moisture into eastern Canada. The flip side is over western Canada, the moisture has been blocked from coming off the Pacific, which is why it has been drier this summer.
