|A rare June snow in Gillam, Manitoba.. (The Weather Network)|
I wanted to mention the bizarre weather in Ontario and Manitoba this past weekend. On Friday a hailstorm moved across Cornwall, Ontario causing millions in damages. The storm was part of the same cell that produced a tornado near Huntingdon. Meanwhile in Manitoba strong thunderstorms produced hail as big as golf balls across southern portions of that province with major damage reported. Claims are still being assessed, but it could run into the tens of millions of dollars. In the north it was snow, in June! A record 20cm of snow fell on Gilliam, Manitoba surpassing the previous June record of 9cm. I still can't handle June snow, thankfully we have never had snow in June, July or August here in Montreal...so far!
