Snow, cold blanket western Canada, while east sees summer-like temperatures

Weather conditions at opposite ends of the country this weekend will be as different as well, east is from west.


Weather conditions at opposite ends of the country this weekend will be as different as well, east is from west.

A massive spring snowstorm is moving its way across the Prairies, with Environment Canada forecasting up to 25 centimetres of snow for Calgary by Sunday, and 30 to 50 centimetres in some areas near the Alberta-Saskatchewan border.

In B.C., unseasonably cold weather has fruit growers in the Okanagan Valley worried about the fate of their spring crops.

However, parts of Eastern Canada, recovering from one of the worst winters in recent memory, are now basking in almost summer-like temperatures.

Daytime highs surpassing 20 degrees Celsius are being seen from Ontario through to the Maritimes, with several daily records set in New Brunswick Friday.

A smog alert was even issued for parts of southern, central and eastern Ontario on Friday, and is to continue through early Saturday afternoon.
