BROCKVILLE – Many people are hoping to close the chapter on a bitterly cold and icy winter across the region.

Spring officially arrives at 5:58 p.m. tonight (Wednesday).

The Weather Network says spring is going to “struggle at times” to get in place with “significant shots of colder weather” that will interrupt the weather pattern in April and May.

Overall, spring temperatures and precipitation are expected to be near normal.
