Surprised Cold Period Could Last Throughout April In Parts Of Canada

Cold Weather Alert
Environment Canada’s senior climatologist says he’s surprised how long winter is lasting on the Prairies and warns the cold temperatures could persist through the end of April.
David Phillips blames a polar vortex for the current spring cold snap.
Temperatures in the region are still in the negative double digits today, with lows reaching -27 C with the wind chill in parts of Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
In southern Alberta, a snowfall warning is calling for up to 20 centimetres of the white stuff.
Phillips says it’s difficult to see such conditions last longer than a day or two at this time of year.
The Weather Network’s forecast centre manager says the conditions will delay the spring runoff.
