Weather Network forecasts mild fall for most of Canada, except East Coast

One of Canada's most high-profile forecasters is projecting comparatively mild temperatures and dry conditions for much of Canada this coming fall.

The Weather Network says temperatures are expected to be near or above seasonal norms from coast to coast, with only momentary flashes of prospective winter conditions.

Chief Meteorologist Chris Scott says the outlook is similar for precipitation.

Most regions are on course to receive rainfall in line with seasonal averages.

The one exception is the East Coast, which Scott says is likely to experience some fallout from an unusually active Atlantic hurricane season.

The network says Canadians fresh from summer conditions that have deviated from the norm in many cases can now ease into a ``quintessentially Canadian'' autumn.
