Well, I’m going to throw just a little cold water on it….

The UWash models don’t have us getting over 14C, though they do show warmth stretching up to Vancouver.

Orange is up to 14C, red, 18C.

Likewise, the basic GFS model doesn’t have us reaching over 20C.

Now all that said, if I recall, I believe we were only supposed to get to 13C on Monday and we got to over 15C, so who knows we might just creep over that 20C mark even if the forecast comes back down to Earth.

So don’t lose heart, it will still be a beautiful spring weekend. Those lawns, gardens and BBQs will be screaming out for attention! 🙂

And just for the record… The record high for March is 23.3 (March 28, 1994) for the 31st the record is 18.9C and 24C on April 1st, both in 1992.
