Here is my latest interpretation of the ECMWF weekly long range forecast model.....
The latest run of this model continues to show colder than normal conditions on average into April across large portions of the country.
Keep in mind though, average temperatures are now steadily rising and even if temperatures are below normal it will not feel nearly as bad as what it was much of this winter. Also, there will no doubt be brief periods of milder weather in between each cold air mass. Spring is coming, its just going to be a little late for many.
I will take a look at the monthly charts from the ECMWF in the next blog....
Do recent cold weather events signal an early winter for Canada?
Here are my latest thoughts on upcoming weather pattern highlights across canada for the next few weeks.
Frost and freeze across parts of eastern Canada and the interior Northeast U.S. later this week, while the West gets into another warm/dry spell this weekend and into early next week.
