Also known as Victoria Day weekend
No gardening going on here.
The month of May is nearly over. Summer is just over 3 weeks away and we've had two, yes, two days of what I consider slightly warm temperatures for this time of year- 80 F or about 27- 28 C.
Two days for all of May- The rest of this month has been cold.Windy. Rainy. Below normal all month long.

Midsummer heat has been warmly welcomed across southern Ontario, with a two-day streak of temperatures surpassing 30 oC in some parts (not where I live) of the region.Yup, two days of warmth.
But cooler conditions are ahead, ( the whole month has been well below norm, except for two days) along with a widespread risk of severe thunderstorms Thursday as the cold front moves through. Severe thunderstorm watches covered almost all of the south of the province in the afternoon, with some storms already sparking in areas further north in the early afternoon, and in most of the Greater Toronto Area by the late afternoon.Looking to the end of May:
"Warmer than the first half of May, but no sustained 20 o+C weather in sight," Gillham says. "The pattern also becomes more unsettled again with next system of significance around Wednesday."Here's hoping. Because May except for two days has been cold. 20 C = 68 Fahrenheit
How about the Atlantic Provinces- How about more snow?
50 cm of snow, more rain for Atlantic Canada long weekend

Though snowfall warnings were slowly dropping off Sunday, the system leaves behind very hefty totals, according to Environment Canada.
"Cartwright has reported snowfall amounts of 50 cm since Friday. Latest indications suggest another 5 cm can be expected before the snow tapers off tonight," the weather agency says.
