Another cold and frosty night is expected across southern Quebec with overnight lows from 5C in Montreal down to below freezing off island north and south of the city. Frost warnings are in effect for a wide portion of the region from the Laurentians south into the Townships as well as Eastern Ontario. Sunday will be sunny and warmer with temperatures warming up to 20C.
Hurricane Maria made landfall on the Avalon Peninsula late Friday with gusty winds and about 60mm of rain, but only 13mm in St. John's. The fast moving storm meant water and wave damage was minimal and the strongest winds remained well east of the center with 130km/h winds offshore. On the west side of the system in the broad circulation winds gusted to 90km/h over far eastern Quebec and the Gaspe.
