Do robins leave the Interior? They seem to be in the Lower Mainland year round.

They do leave us I think. Hadn't noticed their chirping till this am.
Ya I'm guessing it's mild enough on the West coast to stick around year round.

3 straight days of 10+ degree weather coming next week from Tuesday until Thursday in Toronto, finally. It will be short lived however, as at the end of next week we will settle back into an average to cool pattern.

Today, it's windy, sunny and 0.

Surreal Places on SRC posted a pic today, first bees of the season.






At 13 it is the warmest day since December 7 (14 degrees). The Elbow has reopened entirely between the Glenmore Dam and the forks of the Bow, except for a short 40-meter section in Mission. Currently 10 degrees at 6 pm.

How does your snow stay around if it has been above freezing it seems for days w/o any new snow.

I dunno. We've only had one high below freezing in the last two and a half weeks, and we haven't had considerable snowfall since February 5. Could be just that the ground froze quite deep during the cold snap in the first week and a half of February? There was a day when the high was -26 and low -31, so... maybe that? Also of course that image is taken on the last frozen 40 ish meter stretch of a river fed by nearby glaciers (ie. extremely cold water at any time of year).

The snow is disappearing fast though. Last week my pooch and I were walking all the way from Macleod to Elbow Island Park entirely along the Elbow River (about a 3 km stretch), now we can't anymore


Currently 6 degrees at 8 pm.

YYC Airport reached a high of 13.1 today. Warmest day of the year to date. Also ahead of where we were a year ago as we hadn't reached a temp higher than 11 until early April.

Next 5-7 days is cooler, but still above seasonal with highs around 5-8C.

-7C with a wind chill of -17 and a mix of sun and clouds. Disgusting day. Another day where being outside for 5 min is more than enough. Sick of this BS. Nobody deserves more a massive warm spell than us. We haven't had any in more than 2 months.

Low of -12C (wind chill of -22) this morning.

The warmspot was Fort Macleod, AB at 16.7C

Sun and cloud and 2 degrees at just before 12. Looks like we have a pretty good, sunny week ahead with seasonal to above seasonal temperatures.

Enjoy it now. Mid-month things are looking to change:

-7C in Moncton at noontime, sunny and with a windchill of -16. The temperature will get up to -3C later today (average high +0.2C).

This extended early March cold snap is getting tedious. This is colder than it has been all winter, and here it is almost spring!

The end is in sight though. The next six days are expected to be -3C, -1C, +2C, +7C, +11C, +7C.

The weather was springlike when I was driving by Colborne; there was barely snow. Then, when I got to Brighton, it was a whole other view.

-6C with a wind chill of -13 and mainly sunny. This is getting old. It's sickening seeing other parts of Canada enjoy above normal temperatures early spring while we're stuck in below average weather.

Low of -12C (wind chill of -20).

The warmspot was... hold your bananas... Maple Creek, SK at 16.2C.

-9C and sunny in Moncton at 9 AM, going up to -2C later this afternoon. The weather pattern set up by that pesky low pressure system over Labrador is only very gradually breaking down.

Cloudy and 1 degree at noon. Hopefully this week of warm weather (plus some rain near the end of the week) will help get this snow depth down.
