HALIFAX - Although the calendar says it's spring, Atlantic Canada is not getting a reprieve from the winter weather.
In fact, a major snowstorm expected to hit Wednesday could be one of the strongest of the season, Environment Canada said on Sunday.
Meteorologist Jean-Marc Couturier said it's not unusual for the region to get a blast of winter in springtime. He said it's still "prime time" for storms to develop over the warm waters of the Gulf Stream, and this one could be significant.
