A warmer-than-normal spring for the province is being predicted in the Weather Network's 2024 Spring Forecast.   

Doug Gillham, Senior Meteorologist explained that spring is known for flip-flopping weather patterns. However, this year, even more dramatic temperature swings and bursts of winter conditions are expected.  

“Warmer-than-normal temperatures are expected to dominate the season, with a reduced risk for spring flooding due to the below-normal snowpack across the region,” Gillham said.  

Temperature patterns will change more than usual with periods of cold temperatures and the risk of late winter-like events interrupting the mild weather pattern.   

This season, drought is a major concern for the province, resulting in a heightened risk of an early wildfire season.
