Unsettled end to week - brighter Easter

It feels a little more like Spring this morning after a few overnight showers and mild temperatures remaining above freezing in Montreal. Last weeks snow is just about gone and we are back down to the frozen solid, dirty piles that trace back to early December! These will take a little longer to melt, and this may be the weekend we cut into that. First today we have a few pockets of moisture spreading southwest down the St. Lawrence Valley from the Atlantic. These produced a few showers overnight in the valley and some light snow across upper elevations. Today will remain damp and cloudy with more showers this evening into Friday. Temperatures will be mild, near normal highs of 6C and lows around 0 or 2C.

High pressure will attempt to nose into the area for the weekend with sunshine and temperatures rising to around 10C by Easter. By late Sunday low pressure will lift into central Ontario and Quebec and bring a series of cold fronts across the region. Monday at this time looks rainy and breezy. That will continue into mid-week next week with even some snow possible behind the cold front by Wednesday. Temperatures will fall back below normal with highs dropping to around 3C by Tuesday.
