Cold Weather in Canada

As Atlantic Canada suffers through a massive spring storm, people in other parts of the country can take heart that they’re being spared the high winds, driving rain and snowfall seen throughout the region Wednesday. 

But they shouldn't get too comfortable: the cold weather is not behind us yet.

While forecasts beyond five to seven days are difficult to make with any accuracy, Environment Canada's monthly and seasonal forecasts are suggesting that the unseasonably cold weather will continue off and on at least into the first half of April pretty much everywhere but the West Coast.

The biggest weather drivers this year are the fact that most of the country is still covered in snow, which reflects most of the incoming solar radiation back to space and therefore prevents the ground from heating up, and the fact that the Great Lakes and Gulf of St. Lawrence are still mostly covered in ice, which prevents these massive bodies of water from warming the adjacent atmosphere.
