Victoria Day 2011 Forecast

As Americans wait impatiently for a their three-day weekend to come, Canadians will be celebrating a full week earlier, with Victoria Day — or National Patriots’ Day, depending on which province you live in — on May 23.

Will the skies be sunny, or will things get soggy, this Victoria Day? The Farmers’ Almanac knows the answer! Here’s what we’re predicting for your region:

Zone 1 – Newfoundland, Labrador
Dry and pleasant for Victoria Day weekend.

Zone 2 – Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, Quebec
Variable weather for the Victoria Day weekend: thunderstorms sweep from Quebec across the Atlantic Coast, then clear.

Zone 3 – Ontario
Mixed sun and clouds for the Victoria Day weekend.

Zone 4 – Alberta, Manitoba, Saskatchewan
Slowly clearing for the Victoria Day weekend.

Zone 5 — British Columbia
Gradually clearing for the Victoria Day weekend.

Happy barbecuing!

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
