Late March and early April have been chilly.
 
The worst part is, we won't see average temperatures anytime soon.
 
"The normal daytime high in April here is around that 8 C, 9 C and the low is right below the freezing mark," said Environment Canada meteorologist Dan Kulak
 
It'll feel more like January over April.
 
"It's not going to get a lot warmer very fast," added Kulak. "Daytime highs will slowly be moving to just above 0 C by the early part of next week and probably staying close to that mark until the middle of April."
 
As of Thursday morning (Apr.5), the 14 day forecast for Fort Saskatchewan doesn't crack 6 C.
 
The record high for the month was 26.2 C on Apr.27, 2001. The record low was -13.3 on Apr.6, 1997.
