Warm Week Ahead for Most of Canada


It is expected to be a very warm week across most of Canada. In fact, all areas with the exception of British Columbia and Yukon are expected to see above-normal temperatures.


Temperatures across Atlantic Canada will be about 5 to as much as 12 degrees above seasonal, especially in Labrador. A couple of low-pressure systems this week will make most of Atlantic Canada unsettled with several days of rain.


Across Quebec and northern Ontario, temperatures are expected to be between 7 and 10 degrees above normal. In Southern Ontario, temperatures will average between 2 and 4 degrees above normal. Ontario and Quebec look mostly fair.


Temperatures will be about 4 to 7 degrees above normal across the Prairies also. The exception will be the Alberta Foothills where highs will be about 2 degrees above normal. There are no systems of significance on the horizon this week.


For the BC Interior highs will be about 1 to 4 degrees above normal, coastal sections will see near-normal temperatures. Coastal sections will have several systems pushing through making for a very unsettled week.


As a result, areas that have snow on the ground will likely see some snow-melt this week.
