After a brutal winter that saw colder-than-normal temperatures across much of the country, many Canadians are eagerly anticipating the arrival of warmer weather. But they're going to have to be patient, according to Environment Canada.
Spring has finally sprung, but Canadians will have to wait another few weeks for warmer weather to arrive. Environment Canada meteorologist Marie-Eve Giguere said cold air is expected to linger in many parts of Canada for about one more month.
Last year was tied for the fourth warmest year on record around the world, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, which has just released its global temperature figures for 2013.
Parts of the Maritimes could be hit with more than 30 centimetres of snow as a forecasted storm makes its way north from the U.S. eastern seaboard. Environment Canada has issued a blizzard warning for Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island for Wednesday.
