WETANDMILD: Labrador and the very eastern tip of Newfoundland will be the real outliers this winter, with average or slightly above-normal temperatures and below-normal snowfall. Keep the shovels and umbrellas handy, though: The season is still expected to be very wet, with periods of snow and lots of rain.
SWEATERWEATHER: Winter in Southern British Columbia will be remembered for bouts of bone-chilling cold. Keep the fireplace going and hot cocoa at the ready! Snow and rainfall in the area will be near- or above-normal for the season.
