Environment Canada 2007 Spring Outlook
"Most of the Atlantic provinces can expect near normal temperatures with
the exception of Labrador where below normal temperatures will dominate. New
Brunswick and Prince Edward Island can look forward to near normal
precipitation this spring. Nova Scotia and parts of Newfoundland and Labrador
can expect above normal precipitation".
May 5th - I wish Environment Canada would define what "near normal
temperatures" means. Late
February to the early part of
spring has been the coldest since the early 90's. The last bit of
snow left the front lawn May 4th but some snow still remains around the the back
of the property. I saw this weather warning earlier this spring.
This is what I woke up to May 1st. By the middle of the afternoon
the overnight snowfall had all melted and what remained was what fell during the
winter. The only good thing about this weather was that there was not
much that could be done around the yard except chunk up next winter's wood.
