We may be almost three weeks into spring, but Old Man Winter clearly didn’t get the memo.
At this time of year, the average daytime high is around 10 C. The Fort and surrounding areas will be waiting a bit to see those temperatures.
"Realistically, with the information we have right now, cooler than normal temperatures are going to last past the middle of the month," said Environment Canada meteorologist Dan Kulak. "At some point in time, the different air masses do clash and you get these significant storms, so be prepared for one of those. That's not necessarily saying it's going to happen, but this is the time of year when these things are most likely."
Day time highs are expected to float around 1-3 C until the latter half of the month. Apr. 20 is our first expected spring day with a double digit high.
Right now, no significant snowfalls are in the forecast.
The record high for the month was 26.2 C on Apr.27, 2001. The record low was -13.3 on Apr.6, 1997.
