A number of coworkers have canceled meeting in YYC today to avoid the drive down. And a number of the Calgary staff in town today are heading back early. This one seems to have people a little more wary.

Shouldn't be any worse than the dump we got 2 weeks ago, I expect a lot of this will melt right away. The freezing rain is what people are nervous about, doubt we will get much of that to be honest.

Expect the same, the heat from the sun and ground temps are high enough now that any new snow disappears quickly.
We might get some flurries but the melt continues. If all goes well the river will be open in 5 weeks. The trails in the valley should be good to go by then. Still fat bike riding those trails.

Pouring rain, so hard it splashes when it hits the ground. Gross.

Roads and highways weren't that bad for me today and I drove down to High River this morning and back late this afternoon - the afternoon drive was actually quite good.

The warmspot was Sheringham Point, BC at 15.2C.

Mostly sunny today but still cold, high of only 2C, low tonight of -5C. Only one day this coming week will be above normal! Regardless, Snowdrops and Crocus are still managing to bloom somehow! Normal high is 6.4C

My tulips are coming out of the ground but yeah March has been disappointing so far and that looks to continue. I guess it hasn't been horrible, but consistently a couple degrees below normal every day, and the long range looks like a continuation to that trend. Atleast there's no snow I guess.

I'd be ecstatic with a couple of degrees below normal.

-9C and -17C windchill. Today is going to be a normal day around 0C. Hopefully the sun stays out today and we lose a bunch more snow. There's still so much of it around from the storm and the weekend looks cloudy which sucks. Forecast for longer term looks cold as they are still predicting another week of -6C for the end of March which is when the normal high is around 6. So 10C below normal has been the pattern since the last week of the January.

I'm going to guess the tulips are probably still a month away from even coming close to making an appearance of any sort. It's going to be close if outdoor youth soccer starts May 1st this year.

Sunny and gorgeous! Great start to the Paddy's Day long weekend! OMG what a busy week at work. I've been waking up tired. Bring on the beer and the break!

Just one song for this glorious day, by the band me mudder named me after.

I'd say this March has been quite awful. Never very cold, but it hasn't gone past 5 degrees once and we are only forecasted to hit it once in the next week. In February we had 10 days above 5 degrees, and in January we had 8. Pair that with virtually no rain (0.2 MM) and everything is looking very drab and dead around my way.

Bright and sunny here again today with a high somewhere between 5C and 7C, depending on the source. Even better tomorrow with more sun and a high around 11C!

It looks like the second half of March will be closer to normal temperature wise than the first half has been!

As of late all we've been getting is a lot of flurries which look nice when you walk around, but never actually stay on the ground longer than a day. Yesterday was about 0c, and in Toronto (likely surrounding areas too) there was a nice bout of snow, which came and left through the day. None of it accumulated....which is rather annoying. Today's 4 c, less windy I think.
