This week is unusually warm for March.

Most of the week is reporting highs above 10 C. The warmest day will be on Wednesday (Mar. 23), with a predicted high of 16 C.

According to Environment Canada meteorologist Brian Proctor, this is the warmest the area has seen since late October.

"This is above normal. Typically this time of year we should see daytime maxes of about 4 C," he explained. "However, as we look at the longer-range forecast, we're sort of dropping those temperatures down to just below 0 C as we move into the last week of March. So we're trending cooler."

There is a chance of snow falling over the weekend and Proctor mentioned it isn't uncommon for the area to see highs around -10 C during this time of year.

"The key thing would just be, let's just be prepared for changeable conditions."
