Warning: 15cm Of Snow Coming To These Canadian Provinces

Unfortunately for Canadians in the Prairies, spring will have to wait a little while longer. This past week, Alberta, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan experienced a taste of spring, with unexpected temperatures of 22-degrees. This weekend, there's some sad news for the Prairies, as all three provinces will be getting some snow. 

Spring will have to wait at least one more weekend for our friends in the Prairies, which I imagine must really suck. Here in Montreal, we're going to be blessed with spring weather all week. Even though it's raining a lot, I'd rather that than snow! Poor Central Canada.

In Calgary, for instance, up to 3 centimetres of snowfall is expected on Friday and Saturday, according to The Weather Network. While this all might change in the coming days, that the unseasonable -6 degrees in the city on Saturday morning is cause enough for alarm. They don't call us The Great White North for nothing.

TL;DR Alberta, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan are projected to get anywhere between 3 and 5 centimetres of snow this weekend. Spring will have to wait a little while longer, unfortunately!

Above is an example of what the weather forecast in Calgary will be like for this week. 

As you can see, the nasty stuff will start on Friday and continue into Monday morning. If you live in Calgary, I'm so sorry about this.

Albertans seem to be getting the brunt of this sudden winter weather as cities like Saskatoon will be seeing only one day of blustery weather. Saskatoon will be getting a mix of rain and snow on Saturday. 

It seems that the further East you go, the better the weather gets.

Winnipeg, on the other hand, seems to be easy breezy this weekend. If you live in the 'Peg, expect some rain and chilly winds this weekend. 

As of right now, the snow for Calgary and some parts of Alberta is still in the forecast. If anything changes, y'all out there will be the first to know. 

I know that this isn't the news you wanted to hear, especially after your beloved Calgary Flames just got ousted from the playoffs. Snow this weekend and the Maple Leafs are the last Canadian team in the playoffs, a sign of the end times for sure.

It soon looks like spring weather will be delayed across Central Canada, but don't worry. Next week, you guys are expected to return to seasonally warm temperatures.

While we wait for summer, how about we band together and cheer for the Leafs? 

Ok, you're right...that was too much to ask.
