Frost Advisories In Effect For Three Provinces In Canada... And It's The Middle Of May

At this rate summer isn't coming until July.
Frost Advisories In Effect For Three Provinces In Canada... And It's The Middle Of May

For most of us, a little frost isn't going to ruin our lives. It sucks, no question. And it's a reminder that we're still out here waiting for real Spring to arrive, but it's not the end of the world for most regular people.

That said, the Government of Canada does issue Frost Advisories for days that are abnormally coldand "temperatures are expected to reach the freezing mark during the growing season," as frost definitely has the potential to damage new crops.

So again, while most of us don't have to worry about damage to our front lawn, I thought it was pretty nuts that THREE Canadian provinces currently have Frost Advisories in effecttoday, considering it's the middle of May.

Here are the areas in Quebec that are currently under Frost Advisory:

  • Beauce
  • Kamouraska
  • Rivière-du-Loup
  • Trois-Pistoles
  • Montmagny
  • L'Isle
  • Saguenay
  • Témiscouata

These are the areas in Ontario that are currently under a Frost Advisory:

  • Algonquin
  • Bancroft
  • Bon Echo Park
  • Burk's Falls
  • Bayfield Inlet
  • Haliburton
  • Parry Sound
  • Muskoka
  • Peterborough
  • Kawartha Lakes
  • Renfrew
  • Pembroke
  • Barry's Bay

These are the areas in New Brunswick that are currently under a Frost Advisory:

  • Campbellton County
  • Restigouche County
  • Edmundston County
  • Madawaska County
  • Grand Falls County
  • Victoria County
  • Mount Carleton
  • Renous Highway
  • Stanley
  • Doaktown
  • Blackville
  • Woodstock
  • Carleton County

Can I just throw it out there and say why the hell does the East Coast have to put up with these Fall-like temperatures when out West they're dancing through Cherry blossoms?!

Ok, no, that's not fair... several areas in western Canada are actually dealing with wildfires right now, so we should compare suffering. Clearly, Mother Nature is out to show us we done screwed up with all this Climate Change and while we complain we should also be seriously considering what we can be doing as individuals to fix. This. Mess.

In local weather, Montreal can expect rain for the next week. We'll have a break this Saturday and next Tuesday, but from now until next Thursday it's gunna rain. We also won't be seeing temperatures above 18°... which isn't bad if it's sunny and you're taking the bike around town... but a high of 18° with rain is really nothing to get excited about. 

We'll keep you posted if any exciting weather news crops up, but for now the only thing we have to look forward to is the Northern Lights... and in all honesty, with the forecasted rain, there will likely be too much cloud coverage to really see anything.
