Frost Warning

Major flooding in Salem, Mass yesterday morning. Heavy rain dumped 4 to 6 inches in Boston and across the metro area Monday night.

It looks like may parts of southern Quebec will have their first frost tonight especially off island to the north and south of metro Montreal. Environment Canada has posted a frost warning for all our regions for overnight lows into Thursday morning between 0 and 4C. That is the bad news, the good news is the weekend forecast is spectacular for all outdoor activities from apple picking to foliage viewing and even bike ridding. Temperatures on southwest wind and bright sunshine will soar to well above normal readings with highs from 19 to 25C right into early next week.

The news is not great everywhere. A major low pressure area over Atlantic Canada will produce high winds and heavy rain across the Gaspe, lower North Shore and most of the Maritimes including Newfoundland. Further north and west winter storm warnings are in effect for southeast Labrador. A total of 20 to 30 centimetres is expected inland and over higher terrain, most notably for the section of the trans Labrador highway from Red Bay to the Charlottetown junction. Not to leave out the west a major storm moving into southern California is producing the first major snow event over the higher elevations of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
