The weather is a bit all over the place for spring break this year.
Many area kids started the break on Friday, a bit chillier than normal for the area, with the highs just above 0 C. The average temperature for this time of year is a high of 7 C.
The region has also been hit with a bit of snow.
By Wednesday (Mar. 30), the forecast is calling for a high of 9 C. From there on, the temperature should be closer to normal for the rest of the week.
However, since there are a few days calling for overnight snow this week and the temperature is getting below 0 C at night, Environment Canada meteorologist Natalie Hassel warns the freeze-thaw might affect road conditions.
"It would be really important for people to continue taking the same precautions that they have been taking, so driving to road conditions, planning for things to be delayed."
She mentioned kids out and about this week may want to be careful on the sidewalks.
Hassel also recommends getting together an emergency preparedness kit as summer gets closer.
