Indian Summer

Warm and sunny weather is the rule across Ontario, Quebec and New England this weekend. Strong high pressure is producing warm southwest winds with temperatures at least 10 degrees above normal. Officially Indian Summer is two or three days of above normal temperatures after the first frost. Most regions in southern Quebec were near the freezing mark this past week with a hard freeze in several regions outside the city and in the mountains. Here on Ile Perrot we had temperatures very close to 0C on Thursday morning with frost scattered on the ground and roofs of homes. But there is no frost in the air this weekend as late August conditions are expected. Temperatures will soar to between 20 and 26C across the area on all three days with nothing but sun. At noon today, Montreal is already 21C, the normal high for today is 14C.

Enjoy the Holiday weekend and be safe.
