Mother Nature certainly got the memo that yesterday was the first day of spring.

Yesterday we saw top temps of 4 degrees with high winds and moderate to heavy areas of rain lasting throughout the morning and into the afternoon. We did see some overnight snowfall but it was dampened by the rain which came into play early morning.

Overnight we saw around 5cm of fresh but similar to yesterday the winds were a factor blowing at 105 km/h on the peaks. As for today we’re in for a drop in temperature and wind seeing tops of -6 at the base of the mountain with light snow showers spanning across the day. As we head into the afternoon we should see the winds decreasing further with a centimetre or so of snowfall at the base of the mountain.

Looking toward the first weekend of spring, we’re in for some nice partly cloudy conditions on Saturday morning with some clear skies to look forward to come Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning.

Friday: Cloudy with high winds and tops of -4 degrees, with snow showers
Saturday: mostly clear skies, tops of 4 degrees with light to moderate winds
Sunday: Tops of 11 degrees, moderate winds with afternoon rain
