The Weather Network releases Ontario's long-term spring forecast

Feb 26 2020, 6:04 am

While it may feel like we keep getting roped back into winter with all the snow storms and cold weather alerts lately, spring is actually on its way.

We promise.

With just 22 days of our least favourite season winter 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?

According to The Weather Network’s Spring Forecast, which looks at March, April, and May, “most Canadians will have to be patient as we wait for the arrival of consistent warm weather.”

Remember warm weather?

So while it will eventually be warm, it won’t happen quick.

“Spring will tease us at times with periods of warm weather, but the warmth will lack consistency across most of Canada,” said Chris Scott, Chief Meteorologist with The Weather Network. “This spring will bring a heightened risk for several weeks of colder than normal weather, even for regions that will see average temperatures for the season overall. In addition, large parts of the country will have a wet spring.”

The longterm look at Ontario’s spring calls for it being “changeable and wet.”

Temperatures are expected to be near seasonal across southern areas, and warmer than the previous two springs. “However,” said the forecast, “an interruption to the pattern is expected with several weeks of colder than normal weather before consistent warmth arrives.”

And it’s expected to bring rain, as the precipitation outlook is calling for “above normal” activity this spring.

So, near-normal warmth, with more rain.

Sounds like spring.
