September through to November, railway operators in Canada work diligently to create contingency plans to overcome potential delays caused by our unpredictable Canadian winter weather. During this pre-winter planning process, operators analyze and study available weather data in order to begin forecasting potential interruptions to the rail, and continue to make adjustments as this data becomes more substantial.
