In the GTA we have had about a centimetre of snow.....periods of snow here and there. A lot of snow fell this morning....but it hasn't accumulated to much. We had some light hail/snow mixture 3 hours ago.....the temperature is good, just around -1.

I'm glad to see the snow....we didn't have much in the last few weeks so it was a lovely spectacle.

Hit a high of -10C today. Nice. 18C below normal. The wind chill last night was -34C.

It affects how long it takes to warm up and how quickly it cools down, so even if you're not out and about during the time of the low you're still feeling its residual effects all day. For instance, if Calgary and Toronto have identical highs on a particular day, it will likely be warmer at noon/sunset/late night in Toronto than in Calgary. It also affects plant growth and growing season, so that may be an important factor for some people.
The major difference for Calgary is it's proximity to the mountains plus it's altitude (some parts are well over 4,000 feet, Rocky Ridge at 4,150) - Edmonton has much nicer summer evenings and better growing conditions, highest altitude is 2,349 feet. Lows in the positive single digits are very common in Calgary during the summer, tomatoes can be a real challenge to grow outside with no protection.

I was shocked after dressing for rainy weather this morning to see temps of 17 on my drive home!

It's funny because you are further North and at a higher elevation than Timmins, ON (about 1000 ft) yet we get colder temperatures on average. We have quite a few single digit lows in the Summer.

Yup we left our hotel in Coal Harbour at 9am and it looked like it was going to be a drizzly day, by noon it cleared nicely we managed to walk the sea wall in t-shirts. It was a gorgeous Vancouver afternoon. Still nice now... off to Vij’s and a walk around before cocktails later tonight

This city is truly incredible.

Looks like Saskatoon recorded a new record low temperature for April 6th with our morning low of -24.4C, beating the previous record of -20. We're on track to repeat this tomorrow, with another forecast low of -24 versus a record low of -20.

Maple Creek SK is forecast to go down to -21°C in the next few hours. Looks like what Alaska weather would be like in April, if you moved Alaska to the North Pole.

A frigid -6C here this morning! At least it’s sunny, but it’s only going up to 2C later today! Somehow some Star Magnolias have started to unfurl their flower buds even though we’ve been quite chilly! Their flowers will turn brown from the freezing temperatures if they open up any further before it warms up next week.

We've had about 5 cm of snow this morning, should be changing over to rain shortly. I'll hope that means I can get away with not shoveling this

Tough break for the Maritimes tomorrow. Halifax possibly getting 15 cm of snow, sheesh.

Not the whole Maritimes - NB is going to get away scot free this time - It's a coastal storm.
