Pleasent weather to start week
A windy, wet Halloween on the West Island of Montreal
It was a very windy Halloween across the island of Montreal, with peak gusts over 70km/h. The good news was that the rain was much lighter than expected with about 9 mm falling. The wet weather was over by trick or treat time, but the wind continued well into the overnight before diminishing. Sunday was sunny with cloudy periods and breezy, but mild for early November with temperatures around 10C.
Monday will be fair before unsettled weather for the balance of the week. Several cold fronts will affect the region with showers at first but the threat for flurries by Thursday as much colder air moves into the St. Lawrence Valley and New England. Daytime highs in the 7 to 10C range will lower to the 3 to 5C range by Friday.
