Print Friendly and PDF

Ready for a “chilling” prediction? If you live or vacation in Canada, here’s the 2022–2023 winter weather forecast.

For 231 years, The Old Farmer’s Almanac has been helping readers to prepare for the season ahead with its 80 percent–accurate weather forecasts.

Lulled—or frozen—into a sense of frigid-as-usual, many Canadians will be hit by surprise shots of extra-deep cold. 

A “Sneaky Cold” Winter for Canada

The 2023 Old Farmer’s Almanac Canadian Edition has arrived with a winter weather warning: Most Canadians should be prepared for a typically chilled season—but with bouts of “sneaky cold.” 

“Frosty, frigid, freezing … however you say ‘cold,’ that’s what’s in store for most Canadians this winter,” reports Janice Stillman, editor of The Old Farmer’s Almanac Canadian Edition.

“But as an added ‘bonus,’ we also expect a number of unusual mini-deep-freezes throughout many parts of the country, which will sneak up and surprise with their intensity.”


2022–2023 Canadian Winter Forecast Summary

  • Winter will arrive early, with cold temperatures dropping down from the Yukon and northern Alberta to settle in across the Prairies and into southern Ontario and southwest Quebec.
  • By mid- to late November 2022, icebox conditions will arrive—to likely worsen as the season progresses. For example, in January, temperatures on the Prairies will average 7°C below normal. 
  • While temperatures throughout the rest of Canada will be normal or nearly so, this doesn’t mean that these areas will be spared their own winter woes: Several major snowstorms are predicted for southern Quebec and Atlantic Canada, with the first arriving before the end of November!
  • Much of Ontario will also see increased snow, while the southern portions of the Prairies and most of British Columbia will sometimes be more wet than white, with sleet and freezing rain more prevalent than usual.
