Canada expects to see ‘temperature rollercoaster’ – Victoria News
Canadians should be patient this spring as a “temperature rollercoaster” is expected across the country in the coming weeks.
The Weather Network said that while Canada should see the tastes of spring, there are several weeks left before the cold winter conditions subside.
In British Columbia, The Weather Network predicts a few more storm systems and below normal average temperatures.
More precipitation than normal is forecast for southern and central British Columbia
In the Prairies, The Weather Network predicts an increased potential for turbulent temperatures in the region.
There is an increased risk of spring flooding in southern Manitoba, where there has been more snow on the ground than normal.
The weather is shifting to colder than normal north of the Yellowhead Highway in Alberta and Saskatchewan.
In Ontario and Quebec, MétéoMédia anticipates the onset of warm weather in the spring, with periods of very hot weather as the season progresses.
But residents should expect “back and forth” between hot and cold weather before things start to cool down between late April and May.
In Atlantic Canada, The Weather Network is predicting a more typical weather pattern this spring, with near-normal temperatures across most of the region.
Above normal temperatures are expected in southwestern Nova Scotia and below normal temperatures are expected in parts of Labrador.
In northern Canada, below normal temperatures are expected for most of Yukon and the Northwest Territories, while near normal temperatures are expected for most of Nunavut.
