Below-normal temps likely: Forecaster

THE WEATHER NETWORK Enlarge Image

With a half-metre of snow on the ground — and more still to come — plus frost so deep in the ground that it’s causing pipe problems across the province, many people are starting to come to grips with the possibility that this will be a late, cold spring.

But The Weather Network held out a beacon of hope for Westman on Tuesday, as it issued its latest seasonal outlook.

Although meteorologists expect a colder-than-normal spring in most of Manitoba, they say the southwest corner of the province could be spared the worst of it.

"There’s no doubt Canadians are looking for signs of relief from the cold, wintry conditions and rest assured, you can’t hold back spring," said Chris Scott, The Weather Network’s chief meteorologist. "While the vice-like grip of Arctic air will give much of the country a lingering winter headache to start March, the guarantee of rapidly lengthening days and a higher sun angle mean the first tastes of warmer weather are only a few weeks away."

Although the generalized spring outlook is for March through May, there is some relief in the near term as well. The Weather Network expects that milder Pacific air is poised to move east of the Rockies next week, which will bring a reprieve from the bitter Arctic air over Manitoba

Precipitation-wise, all of the province is expected to see normal snow and rainfall during the next three months.
