** Here's a report from a poster in Canada on a weather website Im a member of. I believe this report may be a copy from 'Environment Canada', but I was unable to find the original link to it. Anyway, here is the report **



==weather event discussion==

A huge unprecedented feast of summer in March.

We are in the midst of a historic March warm spell across Ontario
with record temperatures tumbling by the dozen every day. Some
records have been shattered by more than 15 degrees. Afternoon
temperatures yesterday and today are more typical of average
afternoon temperatures in the summer.

The sizzling maximum temperature of 28.8 c reported in Petawawa
Wednesday is the second highest temperature ever recorded in
Ontario in March. The highest temperature recorded during March was
A midsummer like 29.4 c in Wallaceburg on 26-mar-1921. Interestingly
enough, two short days later on March 28, 1921 many folks must have
been shocked when the temperatures remained just below freezing all
day long.

Normally we are still often feeling the frosty fingers of old man
winter's final presence of the season interspersed with a few
normally mild days of early spring where temperatures get into the
low to mid teens. But instead, words such as humidex, tulips,
Fresh green grass, patio weather, swimming pool opening, and
summerlike warmth are on everybody's lips. Satellite photos and
surface observations indicate that there is no significant
Snow cover left across Southern Ontario.

This warm spell is also remarkable for its duration. It is more
reminiscent of a persistent summer heatwave. Many locales such as
Windsor, Sarnia, London and Kitchener have enjoyed 7 or 8 days in a
row where the afternoon temperature reached 20.0 c or higher. This
Is unprecedented for March in Ontario. This record long warm spell is
will last through today after which a cold front will introduce
somewhat cooler air (but still above normal) on Friday.

Below are record maximum temperature records set on Wednesday
21-mar-2012. Please refer to the table below for more details.
