Experts from Environment and Climate Change Canada is forecasting higher than normal temperatures as the winter begins in the country.

It is, among other things, the El Niño meteorological phenomenon that explains these forecasts. This phenomenon is generally associated with warmer temperatures. It alternates with La Niña, which is linked to colder temperatures.

After three consecutive winters of La Niña, experts believe that El Niño will bring warmer temperatures and drier weather.

Environment and Climate Change Canada reminds that 2024 could be the hottest year on record. The effects of climate change combined with El Niño could give rise to extreme weather phenomena.

The ministry stressed in a press release that the country is warming about twice as fast as the global average and even faster in northern Canada, which will cause more damaging weather events.
