While it may feel like spring these days in Toronto, it’s still technically winter.
With 22 days of
our least favourite the season left (but who’s counting?), The Weather Network has released its national spring forecast to give us the low down on what we can expect.
The days will get longer, but will Toronto see a warm or a rainy spring?
“While dramatic swings in weather are a normal part of the season, this spring looks to have a particularly volatile mood,” said Chris Scott, chief meteorologist with The Weather Network.
According to the long-term forecast, Ontario, which has had a decent taste of spring recently, “will struggle at times to maintain consistent warm weather during the upcoming months.”
The bad news is, March is expected to bring periods of “late winter weather” with more winter storms expected in both Ontario and Quebec.
“While significant periods of warmth are expected at times, chillier stretches of weather will tend to win out overall for most. The exception may be along the 401-corridor where there will be periods of warm and cold weather that will average out to a near normal spring,” states the Weather Network.
And there will be more rain.
“An active storm track is expected across the region, bringing above normal precipitation and stormy weather at times through the spring season,” reads the spring forecast.
This, of course, is a concern, as flooding may continue to be an issue this season.
So, while warmer temperatures are just around the corner, expect more rainy days… until summer at least, which is 114 days away (not that we’re counting that either…).
