If there is such a thing as a great time for weeding this is it. The winter has worked on the soil, the ice expanding and contracting freeing and breaking up the soil.
This action makes those weeds, and their roots, easier to extract. So when you are tugging away you can ease out the whole root thus stopping the weed from growing back. It's noticeable at winter and early spring, how much more easily the weeds come away. Good time to clear the borders before spring growth.
