First snow of season on L'Ile Perrot - Montreal

That is it! You are looking at all our snowfall so far for the month of November here on L'Ile Perrot. (ValleyWX)
Not much of a headline event this morning but it has snowed nonetheless. It was a wee bit of a surprise to wake and see the gourd white here at home on L'Ile Perrot. A weak cold front moved across the area overnight with just enough lift to produce an area of light snow and flurries. Areas from eastern Ontario and the Ottawa Valley, across extreme southwestern Quebec, and the west end of Montreal had anywhere from a dusting up to 1cm of snow. It is a cold morning with a light wind and temperatures around -5C. As I said, not much, but in a month with only 12mm of precipitation, this is the best we can do. Cold air will remain in place this week with temperatures staying below freezing for Montreal, expect lows in the -6 to 10C range and highs from 0 to -2C. There will be a chance of a little light snow late Tuesday and Wednesday with another cold front passage with perhaps a dusting expected  Otherwise no major storms are on the horizon as we end what has been a very unusual November  Moving into the first weekend of December it looks like mild air and some rain may arrive here in the east by the weekend. Mild Pacific air will then dominate most of southern Canada and the US into the first week of December.
