|Kuujjuarapik Airport on Hudson Bay (B) reached 31C yesterday, warmer than Montreal (A) at 30C.|
Here in the south, cloud cover allowed temperatures to remain uncomfortably warm overnight and most areas are sitting close to 20C this morning. A slow moving cold front is inching its way across Ontario and heading for western Quebec. Gusty showers and perhaps some thunder are possible beginning this morning in the Ottawa Valley and spreading into Montreal by early afternoon. Some of the storms could produce heavy rain with some ponding of water on roads again, but not the generalized flash flooding of two weeks ago. In any event a good 25-40mm is not out of the question in many locations. The rain and showers will taper off by Wednesday, setting us up for a long period of sunny and warm weather into the weekend. With abundant sunshine temperatures will warm to 30C by Saturday.
