Ontario is in for a mild, showery spring

The Farmers’ Almanac released its forecast for spring 2023.

“Spring in Canada can be a trying season filled with slush, mud and a surprise snowstorm or two. And this season promises to comply,” the forecast says.

Spring officially arrives on March 20 at 5:23 p.m., but it will take some time for the weather to feel springlike.

Temperatures will rise slowly and April will be a stormy one.

“We are calling it a ‘turbulent transition to warmth,’” the almanac says. “Overall though, spring should see near-normal temperatures.”

Ontario, especially near the Great Lakes, is in for a mild and showery spring.

This includes forecasted rain on Easter weekend and the Victoria Day weekend from May 20 to 22.

And western Ontario could experience “dangerous” thunderstorms between the middle and end of June.

Unsteady weather patterns into June could bring more adverse weather to Ontario and other parts of the country the almanac says.

“Another threat of severe weather, this one more widespread, is forecast around the time of the June solstice, as a surge of very warm, humid, and unstable air triggers showers, violent thunderstorms and possibly even a twister or two across much of the central and eastern parts of the nation.” Its spring forecast says.

Moving east, Quebec could see seasonable temperatures with dry conditions.

And Atlantic Canada is forecasted to have a spring with normal temperatures and below normal levels of precipitation.
