Chilly damp weekend in Montreal

The remains of Sandy in the form of an upper level low is very slowly spinning across southern Ontario towards the Quebec border tonight. The result has been a very raw day with temperatures in the mid single digits, currently 6C (43F) in Montreal, far from the record high of earlier this week. A breeze and some drizzle are adding to the miserable weather day. Light rain will continue tonight and into Friday as the low pressure area move across our province. Temperatures will be hanging around the 5 or 6C mark for highs. The weekend will be even colder down around 3 or 4C with scattered rain and perhaps even a snow shower. Next week looks no better with perhaps another storm affecting the region by Wednesday. Stay tuned for more on that with updates over the weekend on the Blog, Facebook and Twitter. Thanks for reading.

I really liked the photo above from the Standard-Freeholder in Cornwall, about Cornwall Electric sending down two employees to help with power restoration across the southern tier of New York state. Five million people remain without power tonight after Sandy ripped across the northeast. It is great to see even a smaller utility offer support to our American friends and neighbors. Hydro Quebec currently has over 150 employees in southern New Hampshire and Vermont. You can read the full story HERE.
