You know, 20 degrees is really the gold standard for spring and fall. When it makes it up to 20 everything feels right. Feels good. I did a two-hour bike ride this evening into the setting sun, and the euphoria I'm experiencing isn't just from the endorphins.

It should be consistently 20 degrees from March to early May, and from October to late November. That would be perfect, and I would never complain about anything again.

16C and sunny this afternoon after a cloudy and soggy morning. At least this meant the low stayed high (9C).

The first day this year that I spent all afternoon out and about without a jacket. Not long after I got in though, I looked out and there was rain slashing against the windows... in the sunshine. Fortunately, the sun shower was brief.

Wednesday's high at Vancouver Harbour was 15 C, the low was 8 C.

This little pond on top of Southside Hills is where we go swimming in the summer. Looking at it now it's hard to believe it ever gets warm enough lol. That view though. It's worth chilly water.

I expected more leaves on the trees in Vancouver by now. Are not trees leafing out later than usual this year? We are starting to see leaves on the shrubs here in Ottawa and it seems we are only about 10 days or so behind Vancouver (perhaps even just one week if we keep getting weather like today), which I find suprising.

Spring comes very suddenly in Ottawa. The snow melts, the grass turns green, flowers and trees sprout, all within a few short weeks. One month ago, we had freezing temperatures and over 20cm of snow, today it's going to be 26 with a humidex.

Our trees are all budding here and grass has never been greener. It usually happens fast, in a matter of a week.

Most of our trees have leafed out now, the tree canopy is very green, and people have been mowing their lawns for weeks. We are right about where we normally should be for this time of year. It pays to be Canada's Southern most city

I love construction in Alberta during the Spring.

You are starting to see more and more sites using Rig Mats so that you can work on the site with little ground disturbance.

Spring in Vancouver comes early but that is partly because there isn't much difference between normal winter and spring conditions. The month-to-month variation is small. Early spring usually starts in February when nighttime lows are reliably a bit above freezing. May is still spring-like. We often don't get reliable summer weather (over 20 degrees for many days at a time with lots of sun) even in June.

Last year it was warmer than normal and the trees around here were leafing out in late Feburary.

Early spring this year into March was colder than usual but lately conditions have been fairly normal. Most trees have small leaves now and some are just about fully leafed out. Because the spring is so gradual here you see obvious stages, with some plants starting well before others. In a place like Ottawa I'm guessing a lot of plants start all within a few weeks.

I was away for the Easter Holiday. When I came back to my neighbourhood it immediately struck me how different it was. I left with mostly yellow grass and some patches of green (and the odd pile of dirty snow), and I came back 3 days later and every was lush green. Quite the difference over three days.

I guess Windsor is Canada's southernmost city that matters.......

Meanwhile, it got up to 22C today in Moncton - very humid and sticky out. The grass is greening up nicely and I actually did some yard work this evening.

I'm actually considering putting on the air conditioning since it's very warm upstairs in the house, but I'll probably hold off since the temperatures will fall back to normal later this weekend.

There were parts of the Maritimes that got as high as 25C today (Cheticamp on Cape Breton Island). Meanwhile, in Bathurst NB, a mere 180 km north of Moncton, the temperature is currently 0C and they're experiencing freezing drizzle.

25C with a humidex of 29 and sunny today. Perfection... still somewhat of a cold morning though at 10C.

The warmspot (like travis posted) was Brockville, ON at 29.2C. That is a new high for 2017. Brockville and St. Catharines reported a humidex of 32 which also a new high for the year.

It's sad we won't have a single 30C this April. And by looking at the forecast across the whole country, it's going to be an UGLY spring.

Spring in Vancouver can take months and it seems like everything is late this year. There are so many different kinds of trees here (some native, some non-native) and they leaf out at different times. A lot of the Japanese Maples, Chestnut and Beech trees seem to be fully leafed out now but there are some other kinds that haven't even started to show any signs of green growth.

Thursday was a nice day in Vancouver. Sunny, dry, warmish. The high at Vancouver Harbour was 12 C, the low was 9 C. I think when we finally do get a string of 20+ degree days it will be a shock to our system.
