    Wednesday, March 4, 2015, 2:51 PM – As anticipated with our Winter Outlook, a very active storm track took over for Canada’s Atlantic provinces. The stormy pattern across Atlantic Canada this winter will likely continue into April with the potential for late-season winter-like storms, according to The Weather Network’s 2015 Spring Outlook for March, April and May.

    “March is going to be a pretty nasty month across Atlantic Canada,” chief meteorologist Chris Scott said.

    “A stronger and more persistent upper level ridge off the East Coast of the U.S. will turn storms north toward Atlantic Canada,” Weather Network meteorologist Dr. Doug Gillham said.

    Flooding may be a concern for residents given the snowpack, but the below normal temperatures predicted could allow time for the ground to thaw and may result in a slower melt, potentially reducing the chances of major flooding. It’s something to monitor.

    Wednesday, March 18, 2015, 3:52 PM – These people are true Canadians.
    As the winter season drags on endlessly in parts of Canada, it’s more important than ever for communities to rally together for protection and encouragement.

    We asked our Twitter followers to tell us about their “Storm Hero:” that neighbour, friend, family member or even stranger whose kindness and bravery have helped them get through this historically tough winter. The responses we received are heartwarming and inspiring.

      Ren the winter of 1971 – 72 was one for the record books. I have strong memories of there being nowhere to shovel the snow near the end …. the snow banks were just too high to throw the snow up to the top. Also dad and I went out to our cottage to check the snow on the roof but the wind had cleared it for us 🙂 … however we could walk off the drift on one corner right onto the rooftop! No ladder necessary to get on the roof of a bungalow.

        Back in the 1950s when I lived just south of Syracuse NY, the dog climbed the snow drift and sat on the roof every winter.

    According to the graphic in the article I should get 5-8″, according to the Weather Channel I should get 2-4″, according to my local tv station I should get 2-4″ with 4-6″ possible, and hubby heard on the radio 1-3″. The science is settled!

    The tv also said our normal temperature for this time is 49 but we’re in the mid-30s.
