Happy New Year

The celebrations are being held in 3C (38F) dry weather in NYC.
Happy New Year, thank you so much for following this blog and allowing me to share my passion for weather with all of you. I can't believe I am starting my 34th year writing about the weather, the last 7 as a blogger. This love for weather began in 1979 and continues to go strong today. It is only possible with all of you reading and dropping me comments and questions.

So to all of you, Happy New Year, and all the best in 2013.

Now back to weather. We start 2013 with an arctic cold front between Montreal and Ottawa at this hour. Look for increasing northwest winds and dropping temperatures overnight and into the daylight hours. Our high has been reached at midnight at 0C (32F) and temperatures will drop into the minus teens during the day today. There will be a brief period of  heavy snow and blowing snow along the front during the next few hours, this has prompted snow squall warnings for the Ottawa Valley at this point. They may be extended into Montreal during the next several hours. The gusty winds will make it feel colder as well as cause blowing snow. Skies will clear out on later towards morning.
