Not the best weekend ahead for outdoor activities, but not the worst either. We start this Friday with scattered frost north and south of Montreal with temperatures down to -1C in the mountains north of the city as well as in Lennoxville in the Townships. Frost has occurred in places but the warnings have been allowed to expire. I managed a low of 3C (39F) here on L'Ile Perrot, but with no frost. With the clouds and showers forecast for the weekend, frost will not be an issue. Speaking of rain, we have low pressure south of the area with precipitation moving slowly into southern Vermont at this time. This will reach Montreal by late in the day with just a slight chance of a few showers. On Saturday a large upper level low will sink into the Great Lakes and then move ever so slowly across Ontario and southern Quebec during the weekend. The forecast is simple, clouds with drizzle and periods of steadier rain most of the weekend. We may see a few sunny breaks Saturday but they will be isolated in nature. High temperatures will be near 15C with lows near 10C both Saturday and Sunday.
