Vancouver and Toronto Are Battling It Out For Rainiest Month in Canada

Vancouver weather forecast

It’s east versus west.

Vancouver may be in rain season mode right now, but it appears Toronto is having quite the wet November as well.

“Thanks to an active storm track, while eastern Canada has seen round after round of rain this season, wet weather has been slow to arrive in the west” reports The Weather Network.


In fact, “in what should be Vancouver’s rainiest month of the year, here we are about half way through November with only 61 mm of rainfall has been recorded so far.”

The November average? 189 mm.

Over in Eastern Canada, “Toronto’s gloomy skies have resulted in 59 mm of rainfall; that’s almost 79 percent of the usual November 75 mm”.

Who Will Have The Rainiest Month?

Strong high pressure off the coast remains in place through next week and that could see some storms develop. However, that “means storms coming into the coast will tend to trend north, keeping the Lower Mainland out of the main storm track”.

As for Toronto, the end of November might be drier and that means a return to the usual frigid temperatures.
