Weather expert's 'good news' for Canadians: warmer and drier spring for most

By CTV News Ottawa, March 1, 2018

Canadians east of Saskatchewan can expect a warm spring as temperatures are expected to surge up to 70 per cent above the seasonal norm at times, according to Environment Canada’s latest long-term forecast.

In the West, the agency’s outlook calls for seasonally average temperatures on the heels of a cold winter.

Dave Phillips, Environment Canada’s senior climatologist, is optimistic that Canadians nation-wide will be content with the weather spring has in store. Environment Canada is not expecting any colder-than-normal conditions on the horizon between March and May.
