Guilty as charged.

Lets see if the Meteorologists get it right this time around.



Unlike when they totally botched the forecast when there was that huge 100 car pile up.

I've taken a partial interest in how absolutely miserable early spring has become in Edmonton since I returned in 2006. I never remember there being snow on the ground in May left over from the winter. Sure there's some odd freak May snowstorm but that didn't count. I was looking for snow left over from winter.

I can almost guarantee this year there will be snow in my backyard come May 1st. It's sheltered as my yard is north facing. Right now it hasn't even really begun to melt.

This will be year 2 of 3 since I've started paying attention. It just seems so odd to me. During this time I've also tracked the temperature vaguely to see how often we're below the average. In the last three years I think I can count on my hand the number of days in April where Edmonton has hit its average high in April.

My wife always makes fun of me for getting cranky because I rant how April is crappy month(happens to be her birthday month hehe). This being the third year of it and shaping up to be the worst one yet.. she's starting to agree haha.

If you want to see something depressing go to the 14 day forecast at the weathernetwork.com for Edmonton. It's pretty much a constant for the month of april.
Always says it will warm up in a week but never happens. You'll look at it a week later and will be the same as a week before. 8-10 degrees below average for the next 5 days then gradually warm up to average or above in 7-10 days.

It can always be much worse.I remember a few years back when we had snow in June,not to mention back in Aug,1992,when we had snow in the middle of the month.

Josh Classen says the storm is tracking more south now. Hopefully we don't get the predicted amount.

People in this thread acting like this cooler weather is an Edmonton thing only. It's happening across the entire country and even the northern US. Minnesota just got a ton of snow a couple days ago.

Not here really. Been a pretty normal spring, and mild winter.

Pardon us for talking about a locally relevant topic?

This time of year is always the worst time of year for me. I'm raring to get out in my yard to do the spring cleaning, but the weather never co operates. Just waiting for decent temperatures in the mid teens seems like a hapless task in Edmonton.

Unfortunately around here, the May long weekend is the time to get most outside projects started.

I envy my family in Chilliwack who were doing their May long weekend stuff back in February or early March.

EDIT: According to a website, Edmonton is frost free as of May 7 this year while Calgary is May 23. If we get a two week head start like that, it will be pretty good.

Does this mean I can finally take off those heavy gas waster sandbags on my car now?

Seriously?

We are more likely to get ****ed up weather because of global warming. It doesn't just mean that the world gets warmer. Please try to educate yourself.
