While meteorologists at The Weather Network are predicting near normal spring conditions for most of Canada, some regions can expect patterns that fall outside of the normal averages. See below for provincial and regional breakdowns.

British Columbia
The northern parts of British Columbia 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 wil extend from the Ottawa Valley in Ontario into Québec's adjacent St.Lawrence Valleys, including Montreal. Near normal precipitation elsewhere.

Atlantic Canada
Near normal temperatures are in store for most of Atlantic Canada, 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.
