The Weather Network is warning to prepare for more of the same as we approach the winter season.

The network has released it’s seasonal forecast.

Spokesperson Michael Carter says the fall storm season arrived early this year and we’ll have more rain and storms in the forecast through the winter this year.

Carter says the freezing level is likely to stay higher as winter starts, but that will lower as the season settles in, meaning we’ll likely see a good snow-pack in the mountains this year.
