“The deep freeze is behind us, but the threat of wintry weather is not over”
The calendar has flipped to March and the hope for warm spring weather comes with it.
The Weather Network has released Canada’s long-term spring forecast as milder weather has finally returned to much of the country.
Most Canadians will be treated to an early taste of spring in March, April, and May, says the weather agency, but we’ll have to “be patient as we wait for consistent warm weather.”
March will feature dramatically warmer weather compared to February for the Prairies, and spring will “struggle at times,” especially across western parts of the region.
“The well below normal snowpack across the region means a greatly reduced risk for spring flooding,” says the forecast. “We expect that spring will bring typical amounts of rain and snow, helping to alleviate the increasingly dry conditions, but we are concerned that drought conditions south of the border could become more widespread and impact southern parts of the region by the start of the growing season.”
