Face it, the weather has been the only thing anyone has been able to talk about over the last few months. No matter what the temperatures or conditions are, you want to be prepared for what's about to hit the country next.
Luckily, you will be. Although the month of April isn't bringing the most ideal weather, at least you won't be surprised when it does hit.
For the most part, the weather taking over the rest of the month is less than ideal. You probably won't know whether spring is here to stay or if winter is making a comeback during the entirety of the month. At the very least, it makes things a little more interesting for Canadians.
TL;DR Weather conditions during the month of April across Canada are expected to reach cooler temperatures in the north and in the Prairies and Maritimes, with British Columbia and other eastern provinces experiencing the warmer conditions. Things may change quickly, with a block pattern expected to suppress warm weather on the horizon. More details below.
The good news is that according to The Weather Network, the constant hits of cold weather the eastern part of the country experienced throughout March is on the way to disappearing for good.
The bad news comes for parts of northern Canada that received a more mild weather pattern last month. It's all about to change as the colder air is now travelling in that direction, leaving regions of northern provinces and territories with a sudden cold blast.
On top of the already bad news, even wetter conditions are expected to hit British Columbia this month as well. So, you probably should take "April showers bring May flowers" literally.
The silver lining in all of this is that it isn't expected to last very long. As for eastern Canada, a warmer April is expected in contrast to the unbelievably cold temperatures that just previously took over. So, maybe spring really is making its official introduction.
The Weather Network is expecting that a smaller scale version of the blocking pattern experienced last month will be making a return during the second week of April. This will mean that sustained warmth in western Canada will be prevented from moving eastward towards the Prairies and the Maritimes.
So, as you can probably tell, all of Canada will be facing some pretty back-and-forth temperatures this month.
Western Canada is by far the luckiest this season with the warmest weather, but if the blocking pattern happens to continue into the second half of April, then colder temperatures will return to the south.
