While there are spring-like temperatures in southern Saskatchewan Monday, it’s still too early to put shovels and mittens into storage.
The Weather Network’s Nadine Powell told the 980 CJME Morning Show Saskatchewan residents can expect above normal temperatures for the end of February and the first few days of March.
There may also be some precipitation on the way this spring, with slightly above normal amounts in the forecast for March, April and May.
“We anticipate we will see a few more storms so that may help to bump up precipitation just a little bit.”
She said it’s too early to know if it will be snow or rain.
“You really have to wait until you get closer to the actual event to determine whether it’s going to be rain, snow, even a bit of mixing.”
There is also a bit more cold weather on the way for March and April, with early spring temperatures expected to be slightly below normal.
“But once we head into the second half of April, I think we can say that winter is gone.”
