Rare November weather

Out of the fog: The tropical air mass from the east coast storm produced high dew points and plenty of fog in Montreal this past weekend. The photo is of the St. Lawrence Seaway early Sunday.

Strong high pressure is dominating the weather in southern Quebec and eastern Ontario this week with abundant sunshine in what should be the cloudiest month of the year. Temperatures will be near normal, 6C during the day and just below freezing at night. The next chance of rain will come by Friday.

Yesterday we had some wild weather across the middle portion of the continent. While it was snowing heavily in Kansas, Nebraska and Colorado, northern Alberta had record highs. Portions of northeast Kansas had nearly a foot of snow with 8 inches in Denver. Meanwhile Edmonton shattered their record high, reaching 14C breaking the previous high of 10.9C set in 2001. There were several other record highs in northern Alberta as well.
