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.
