We’re likely to see a cooler start to spring, but that could mean less risk of flooding in March. This is from Environment Canada Meteorologist Geoff Coulson, who says the warmer than usual temperatures in February shouldn’t give anyone high hopes. Coulson says we’re not expected to see warmer than usual temperatures until April arrives.

With these temperatures fluctuating between warm and cold, Coulson says the snow pack should continue to melt slowly, which will give the rivers and lakes a chance to keep up. However, he says there might be some concern for flooding once April hits and the thermometer starts to rise much higher.
