Easter weekend forecast

Easter is just around the corner and many Canadians will be travelling this long weekend. The weather will be less than ideal in many areas.

Good Friday

A pair of lows over Atlantic Canada will result in heavy rain for most of the region. Labrador will see snow with freezing rain for southeastern areas. Nova Scotia, PEI, and Newfoundland will see temperatures near 10 degrees or more.


A high centred over southern Ontario will result in fair skies for most of Quebec and Ontario. Temperatures across southern Ontario and southern Quebec will be between 5 and 10 degrees.


The Prairies and British Columbia will be mostly clear as week, but there will be an area of snow along the Manitoba/Saskatchewan border. Highs between minus one and minus five are expected across the Prairies. In British Columbia, highs ranging from 5 to 10 are expected for most areas.


Saturday

A low over the Lower North Shore of Quebec will continue to spin resulting in snow across most areas of the Lower North Shore of Quebec and northern Quebec. In Labrador, it will be a rain and snow mix. Warmer temperatures continue for most areas on Saturday.


Some spotty showers or flurries are expected across Southern Ontario. Temperatures will cool by a few degrees compared to Friday.


Western Canada remains quiet. Highs between minus one and minus five are expected across the Prairies. In British Columbia, highs ranging from 5 to 10 are expected for most areas.


Easter Sunday

The best day of all three will be Easter Sunday. Clear skies are expected for most of the country. There will be some lingering snow across northern sections of Quebec. In the east, cooler air begins to return on Sunday.


There will be a slight warm up on Sunday across Alberta and Saskatchewan. In British Columbia, highs ranging from 5 to 10 are expected for most areas, across Vancouver and the Lower Mainland, highs near 15 are possible.
