Showery weekend ahead
Showers continued overnight providing the region with much needed moisture. Montreal ended last month with only 38mm of precipitation, that did include 0.2cm of snow on Mother's Day, but also a 35C high temperature reading last week. We are heading into a period of unsettled weather this weekend across Ontario and Quebec. Skies will be partly cloudy today with temperatures no better than 20C and the ever present chance of showers. Tomorrow will be the best day of the next four with sunny skies and temperatures warming to 26C. The weekend looks cloudy with a chance of showers and thunderstorms for the entire weekend and even into Monday. The damp and cooler weather is helping the forest fire situation here in Quebec. Firefighters are now battling 40 blazes down from 45 and more importantly only 5 are listed as out of control down from 16 last weekend. The air quality region wide has improved tremendously from this past Monday.
