Very light dusting of snow on the grass this morning in Moncton (although judging by the amount of snow on the truck in front of me driving into work this morning, they must have received a few cm not too far out of town). Going up to +9C later this afternoon and partly cloudy.

There may be some more snow this weekend, but warming up again by next Tuesday (+13C)

They're little white balls. Very light. You can blow them off your car with your breath if they havent melted into each other when landing. Very common type of winter precip here. Closer to miniscule styrofoam balls than snow.

Sunny and nice here again. Air is chilly but sun is hot. Jacket off and window down required in the car.

^ Not anymore right atm! The sun's just starting to come out - and I hope it stays that way!

About prolly 1 cm's fallen this morning, but I expect this to be gone by evening - if it ever gets above freezing today (a high of +5 is forecast, but this remains to be seen).

Liverpool NS hit 16 degrees today, while Halifax is only 8 or so, and Kentville is 9. The far South Shore and Annapolis Valley both have somewhat nicer spring temperatures than the Halifax area, while exposed coastal areas in Cape Breton have really bad spring weather and are about a month behind.

Liverpool and Greenwood have April mean highs in the 10-11 degree range while Louisbourg (Cape Breton) is only 5.6.

One of the interesting things this time of year is how big local temperature differences can be if one area gets a bit more sunshine than another. When the sun comes out it has a lot of heat now.

Here's a fun stat about weather in Edmonton, we're now at 167 consecutive days of temperatures at or below zero, with the next seven days all showing sub zero overnight temps. So we'll be at nearly half a year of consecutive sub-zero temps this season

If you don't know what ice pellets are, consider yourself lucky.

This ice storm is just the cherry on top of this truly pathetic “spring”.

So far we've escaped the freezing rain, but it's only 2 degrees, so there might be freezing rain tonight if the temp falls further.

0C in Moncton right now at 7PM. The temperature has been falling all day - it was +5C at noon time.

Cold and clear tomorrow and Monday. Some freezing rain overnight Monday then warmer and wet for the rest of the week.

Halifax Public Gardens last week:

Seems.. not completely brown? Most days lately have had nighttime lows above freezing. But usually by mid-April the grass would be completely green there, and a bigger variety of early things would be blooming. Trees there normally start leafing out around early May or late April on good years.

Spring in Nova Scotia is so slow that there are usually very clear transitions when certain things start happening. There are usually weeks when there are lots of spring flowers and the grass is bright green but the trees are completely bare. It is not like some other areas that go from winter to +20 overnight.

Up to 11°C today and mostly sunny. It's clouded over a bit, but still mild at 10°C.

Oh, and as one can imagine - the snow's really disappearing faster than it did yesterday.
