As Canadians we talk about the weather relentlessly, I just talk about it a little more! I hope to provide useful information to my family, friends and all those who simply enjoy talking about the weather. While I try to include information of interest from all over North America, my primary region of concern is the St. Lawrence Valley of Quebec, Ontario, and New York, as well as our neighbouring regions. This Blog is dedicated to my late father for inspiring my interest in weather.

As strong low pressure continues to lift into Quebec tonight, a potent cold front is causing damage up and down the east coast. A variety of warnings are in effect for high winds, flooding and strong thunderstorms. Montreal received over 27mm of rain, along with winds over 60km/h. Here on the Seacoast of New Hampshire, winds have gusted over 30mph, and we have a high wind warning posted. Strong winds will reach over 50mph with heavy rain tonight. Another threat will come from high surf up against the seawall right across the street from my condo. Some ocean overwash is possible during high tide around midnight. Should be an interesting night. Power outages are also a big problem in New York and Vermont with thousands in the dark tonight.
