Southern Saskatchewan is enjoying the second warmest winter in over 60 years.
David Phillips, senior climatologist with Environment Canada, says temperatures are several degrees warmer than normal and he expects more of the same this month.
Phillips also expects an early spring and drier than normal weather.
But he admits long-range forecasting is difficult at best.
He says the mildest winter was in 1944, but other recent warm winters include 1955 and 2006.
