Spring is just around the corner, and soon we’ll know what kind of iceberg season we can expect this year. Looking at the Canadian Ice Service daily iceberg charts, it’s clear that there are plenty of icebergs around, they’re just not on their way to St. John’s just yet:

We need the right kind of wind to spread these icebergs out all along the East Coast Trail, a sustained wind that blows the bergs into shore where we can all enjoy them.

This is what the wind is doing today, it’s blowing them southeast, further into the Atlantic:

This cool Newfoundland wind map comes from this beautiful website where you can see the wind blowing right across the globe, amazing!

If you’re interested in seeing the icebergs close to shore too, keep an eye on the charts and the wind and you’ll have a pretty good idea of what to expect.
