Thursday, May 18, 2017, 11:26 AM - Though the Canadian groundhogs, Willie and Sam, predicted an early spring, winter has had different plans.

Frigid temperatures fought a tug-of-war with spring-like warmth for the earlier part of the season, extending beyond Punxsutawny Phil’s six-week prediction. But spring and even summer temperatures have finally won and make their presence known across Canada just in time for the May holiday weekend.

Looking at the 14-day forecast for major cities across Canada, the average holiday temperature ranges from the high teens to the low 30s, perfect summer-like weather for the season’s unofficial start.

Unfortunately for residents of Newfoundland, their temperatures do not exceed 10oC, while the rest of the country will see temperatures range from low to high teens after the holiday.

Summer forecast premieres Tuesday, May 23 at 9 p.m. ET
