VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – Now that we’re getting back into flannel season, many of us are wondering, what kind of weather are we into?

“No pronounced La Ni├▒a ocean circulation, no dramatic shift in the northern hemisphere temperature distribution,”┬áMeteorologist Russ Lacate explains, adding the B.C. south coast appears to be on track for a typical fall season.

Of course there are a number of variables that could change things long-term, he notes.

The past soaking wet week and Tuesday’s forecast notwithstanding, Russ says you can expect an overall fall forecast which doesn’t stray too far from normal for the next little while.

“And that translates into average daily highs in the mid-teens, and measurable rainfall on about 50 per cent of the days through October, November, and December,” he says.
