The map (courtesy of Environment Canada) below shows the temperature anomalies across Canada for March 2010.
As you can see from the map, much of northern Canada down through Ontario experienced temperatures that were greater than 5 degrees celsius (9 F) above the average monthly temperature. Only extreme southwestern BC experienced temperatures that were close to normal for the month as a whole.
The next map from EC, shows the latest precipitation departures from normal so far this growing season, which began April 1.
The growing season has gotten off to a wetter start, especially over Saskatchewan, but a dry start over southern New Brunswick, PEI and Nova Scotia.
Longer-term drought conditions continue across a large portion of Alberta.
The latest 8-10 day outlook shows an active storm track from west to east across the United States, while much of northern and central Canada look fairly dry and warm compared to normal. I see no break in the well above-normal temperature pattern across much of northern Canada through the first week of May.
