If you felt like fall came unseasonably early in the Lower Mainland, you aren’t alone.

Not only have there been many dreary, rainy days, but there have also been a number of downpours. Vancouverites witnessed an intense downpour around 4 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 9 that caused flash flooding in parts of the city. As a matter of fact, Vancouver received over twice the average rainfall for September.

According to The Weather Network, summer may have ended early this year across parts of Canada. However, B.C., Alberta, and southern parts of Atlantic Canada are expected to see temperatures that will tip to the mild side of normal heading into fall.
