Spring finally arrives and you start dreaming up plans for Easter. An outdoor picnic. Maybe an egg hunt for the kids. Then, you see this week’s forecast. There’s an Easter in there, but its got a big NOR in front of it. Snap back to reality. No clear trails for the rabbit just yet.

This winter isn’t about to give up, no matter how much you will it. Might as well strap yourself in and enjoy the ride.

Weather, good or bad, plays such a major role in what defines us Atlantic Canadians.

I just got back from a playoff game at the Metro Centre. The Rainmen beat the Island Storm, but Wednesday’s match-up may be postponed due to the Nor’easter.

Our tolerance for inclement weather has surely been tested this winter and it seems patience is running thinner than the ice in the Cabot Strait (currently 120 cm thick).

One thing’s for certain. If we can make it through this one, we can make it through anything.

Winds will be gusting at near hurricane strengths. Exact snowfall totals are still uncertain, but it’s going to be a lot.

Here at The Weather Network, we've got a huge team who live for these moments and they’ll be keeping you updated around the clock.

I’ll be out in a snow drift somewhere providing live updates as the storm hits. Be sure to tune in!
