Spring Forecast – Early March to feel like January


Spring Forecast – “It looks like a furious finish to winter east of the Rockies with some wild winter weather during early March. However, later in March we expect an abrupt flip in the weather pattern,” said Chris Scott, Chief Meteorologist with The Weather Network. This will bring an extended period of mild spring weather about a month earlier than last year. However, it is important to remember that spring is a tumultuous season, and this year will be no exception with chilly interruptions to the warmer weather well into May.”

Below are conditions expected across Canada this spring:

Ontario & Quebec â€“ Early March will feel more like January, but a pattern reversal is expected mid March with an extended period of warmer spring weather. This will bring a heightened threat for spring flooding, especially across northern Ontario and the Ottawa Valley, where the snow depth is well above normal. This extended period of warmer spring weather will be a welcome contrast to last year, which featured one of the coldest Aprils on record. Spring will struggle at times with significant shots of colder weather that will interrupt our mild pattern later in April and into May.
