Currently, it’s 8 C at the Edmonton Blatchford station, with winds of 17 km/h blowing from the east southeast.

Today could potentially see some showers. This is exactly what we need to start seeing green grass start to appear.

We will see the wind start to pick up around noon. We are expecting gusts of 20 km/h to 40.

I can’t wait to see and hear the signs of spring all around. I can see the tree buds in the garden have started to burst. The frogs in the park’s pond have started singing their croaking chorus and a great blue heron, which has nested nearby every year, has been seen several times swooping in for a snack.

While today might not be as gorgeous in terms of the weather, the signs of spring are everywhere and it’s pretty awesome!
