Possible frost overnight as winter continues to disappoint

WEST CARLETON – Like in-laws overstaying their welcome, we have a winter that just won’t go.

The good news is Environment Canada’s latest advisory, issued this morning (May 7), is the shortest of the year.

“Frost may damage some crops in frost-prone areas,” Environment Canada released in a statement today. “Clear skies and calm winds will allow for temperatures to fall to near or slightly below the freezing mark overnight into early Wednesday morning.”

The expected low this evening is about 1 degree Celsius. The rest of the week is forecast to have temperatures in the teens except for Thursday with a forecasted rainy high of 7 C. Prognosticators are calling for rain on four of the next seven days.
