Sunny Monday

Cross border shoppers were not the only Canadians taking a break on Sunday. These geese paused on their flight south along the Lake Champlain shoreline just off Route 9 in Plattsburg, NY.

It was a mixed weather weekend in our region with steady rain and windy conditions Saturday followed by cooler but dry weather Sunday. About 20mm of rain fell in Montreal Saturday with much less to the north and west, (6mm in Kemptville) and more south and east of the city. Portions of Vermont had nearly double that amount.

High pressure will remain in control today, with a sunny and cool day, close to 7C. A weak area of low pressure will move across the area tonight with just a couple of showers or flurries. A stronger system will impact the area on Wednesday with a greater threat of rain. The week will be mild, with no major cold outbreaks in sight. It is early in the forecast period, but it looks like Halloween could be on the wet side. The rain may taper in time for the trick or treaters. More on that later in the week.
