Typical October weather

It is another chilly start to the day across eastern Ontario and southwestern Quebec. Montreal is at 5C at 8am but we were as cold as 1C overnight, and below freezing off island with frost. Kemptville starts the day at 1C after an overnight low of -1C. All areas will be partly cloudy to start the day before clouds increase around the noon hour. Winds will be gusty again, out of the west at 20-40km/h. Temperatures will be a little warmer reaching 12C, it was 11C yesterday. A combination warm front and cold front will bring showers to the area Wednesday and Thursday before cooler air overnight Friday allows some flurries to occur at higher elevations and possibly north of Montreal. The weekend at this time looks decent with sunny skies and a little warmer. No major storms in sight at this point.

TROPICS: In the tropics another area of disturbed weather has developed between Honduras and the Cayman Islands, roughly in the same location that Hurricane Paula did last week. The National Hurricane Center predicts a 50% chance of storm formation and plans to send a NOAA Hurricane Hunter into the system later today.
