|The celebrations are being held in 3C (38F) dry weather in NYC.|
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.
