|Area temperatures at 3pm on Tuesday, looking more like early October and not December. You can add record highs of 19C in both Cornwall and Brockville to that list. (Weather Underground)|
As far as winter weather goes, arctic air has most of Alaska and northwest Canada in its grip with little bite size pieced falling off and drifting across the Prairies. How cold? Fairbanks in Alaska has been below -18C since mid November for highs and lows. November in Fairbanks was the coldest in 100 years. Temperatures have been as cold as -56F in portions of the state and forecasters see no relief any time soon.
For Montreal, several areas of low pressure are forecast to move into our area by the weekend and early next week with perhaps some rain or snow. As I mentioned yesterday temperature profiles suggest a mix of precipitation but it is way too soon to tell how much of each. It will however remain mild.
