Chateauguay Valley weather March 2022 
(… and a little bit of April)

March ended up slightly above normal for average temperature, finishing at -0.8 degrees Celsius which is a half degree warmer than the normal for the month at -1.4 C. The average figure disguises the fact that there were several nights that dipped below -20 C, and several days where the daytime high reached above 15 C – so, in the end, we were comfortable in the middle.

The ups and downs in the daily temperatures appear to have been good for maple syrup producers, with good yields being reported. There is the prospect of more in the early days of April, as the temperatures will continue to go below zero for a few more nights and the buds haven’t yet spread their wings (so to speak).

85 mm of rain fell during the month, topped off with 23 cm of snow, which combined to produce 108 mm of precipitation in total. For those still working in imperial units, that was 4.2 inches, which means that rain and snowfall in March was 40 per cent above average – a wet month.

And it looks like this trend might continue throughout April, with some form of shower or rain activity forecast for every week. Although only two days into the month, the average temperature for April so far sits at 2.8 C (normal for the month is 6.5 C) and there was 1 mm of rain.
