If this is going out like a lamb, is it too late to give the lion a shot?

Easter egg hunters awoke to a fresh dusting of snow on the last day of March and there’s a 30 per cent chance of more flurries before the morning is out. Winds are north at 30 km/h gusting to 50 km/h and today’s high is expected to hit -6 C, a full 11 degrees below normal.

Skies will clear tonight with a low of -18 C, 12 degrees below seasonal lows.

Things should pick up slightly for the week with mainly sunny days on Monday and Tuesday with expected highs of -3 C and -1 C respectively.

We will finally see the plus side of the ledger on Wednesday when the forecast high is 2 C.

On the bright side, flood forecasters will be happy to see these far-from-scorching temperatures as they will help minimize the amount of run-off into the province’s waterways this spring.

It’s back to minus side on Thursday with a high of -4 C predicted and Friday and Saturday are expected to be sunny with highs of 0 C both days.
