Overall, it looks like cold air will dominate across the eastern two-thirds of Canada for much of March, though it's not going to be cold all the time.
However, the pattern will be fairly progressive with several fronts moving from northwest to southeast. Ahead of these fronts there should be brief periods of milder weather followed by several days of cold.
The near-record ice extent across the Great Lakes will likely result in an increased cooling influence within that region through the month and probably into April.
This type of pattern will likely lead to at least a few more Alberta clipper type storms that produce light to moderate snow along and north of the tracks.
The main storm track (bigger/more moist storms) will mostly lie off the East Coast and up toward Atlantic Canada.
On a brighter note, daylight is now rapidly increasing each week and you can certainly feel the stronger sun going to work as you sit in your car during a sunny afternoon while the outside temperature remains well below freezing.
I have finished the Spring forecast and will post that later today (Tuesday)
Monday afternoon update on the impending snowstorm for Atlantic Canada and the next system for midweek in eastern Canada.
A look at the next two snowstorms and the long-range forecast model update...
A coastal storm will bring accumulating snow to parts of Atlantic Canada from Thursday afternoon into early Friday.
A new pdate on the quick-moving snowstorm coming for parts of Quebec later today into early Monday.
Looking cold in the East for early February while the west turns milder.
A buckling of the jet stream pattern in the East this weekend into next week will end up deflecting much of the milder, Pacific air farther south into the U.S.
