Mild with flurries for Ontario & Quebec

Weak high pressure will try to clear skies out today but I think low clouds and moisture will limit any sunshine we see here in southern Quebec. On Tuesday and overnight we had periods of very light snow with a trace to as much as 1cm here on L'Ile Perrot. It is mild with the cloud cover keeping the temperatures in the -2C range. Highs today will be up above freezing to 2C. Thursday will be partly cloudy and a touch cooler with highs generally below freezing at -1C. By Friday another clipper system will affect southern Ontario and Quebec with some light snow and rain. As a rule these type of systems produce up to 5cm of snow or rain and not much more. The weekend at this time looks fair with near normal temperatures, but we are watching the potential for another east coast storm once again by Sunday. This will need to be monitored as several scenarios are at play at the moment. The system could hug the coast or move well out into the Atlantic and miss us entirely.
