It looks like fall will be warmer than normal in the Stratford area.
Environment Canada Senior Climatologist David Phillips says the temperatures, with fall officially starting on Saturday, will be higher through October, November, and into December when compared to the same time the past few years.
He says it will also be dryer than normal with less rain expected to fall.
Phillips says that means good news for local farmers.
“Farmers that couldn’t get that hay crop in because of wet weather will maybe get the third crop in, the harvest will be able to finish on time.”
Phillips adds that days are getting shorter though with around three minutes of less sunshine.
