Chilly start to spring in Edmonton, Alberta

Sure, spring had sprung in Alberta, and the rest of Canada, by Friday, but you wouldn't have been able to tell by standing outside in Edmonton, Alta.
We found people bundled up like it was another winter day on the city's Jasper Avenue, with below-seasonal temperatures in almost all areas of the province.
Needless to say, people weren't impressed with the start of the spring, and weren't afraid to tell us so.
Weather Network meteorologist Doug Gillham said temperatures this spring should feature some extended periods of some very cold temperatures, and some very warm spring-like temperatures, but on the balance, it should even out to about-average this spring.
