Spring 2012 weather forecast

March came in like a lion for many parts of Canada, so does that mean April and the rest of the spring season will be lamb-like? The Weather Network’s meteorologists say it should be “near normal” spring conditions across Canada, but some areas can expect weather patterns that are outside of the normal range.
British Columbia
In northern B.C., The Weather Network says residents can expect below normal temperatures this spring, with near normal temperatures forecast elsewhere. Near normal precipitation is expected for the province.

Alberta and Saskatchewan
Temperatures in northern Alberta and northern Saskatchewan will also be below normal, with near normal temperatures elsewhere. Parts of southern Alberta, including the city of Calgary, can expect drier than normal conditions with near normal precipitation elsewhere. Saskatchewan can expect near normal precipitation as well.

Manitoba
While temperatures for Manitoba will be near normal, the far south of the province, covering most of its Grain Belt, will be warmer. Near normal precipitation amounts are expected.

Ontario
With normal spring temperatures expected for most of the province, above normal temperatures are forecast across the southern tier of the northwest. Wetter than normal conditions are likely for the southern half of northeastern Ontario through cottage country and across eastern Ontario. Wetter than normal conditions are expected for the Lower Ottawa Valley including the National Capital Region.

Québec
Temperatures are predicted to be near normal for the province. Wetter than normal conditions will extend from the Ottawa Valley in Ontario into Québec’s adjacent St. Lawrence Valleys, including Montreal. Near normal precipitation is forecasted elsewhere in the province.

Atlantic Canada
Near normal temperatures are in store for most of the region, except for Nova Scotia, Newfoundland’s south shore and the Avalon Peninsula where we expect milder than normal temperatures. Precipitation amounts will be near normal for the entire region.

Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavut
Below normal temperatures are forecast for the Yukon and the Northwest Territories, but Nunavut can expect near normal conditions. Near normal precipitation is likely everywhere.
