Some much needed moisture for Montreal

A few showers will move into the St. Lawrence Valley later today along a warm front. The moisture and milder temperatures will be welcome after a chilly start once again this morning. It was not as cold as Tuesday morning with the mercury dipping to 2C (36F) here on L'Ile Perrot. On Tuesday morning we had frost and a record low of -1C (30F) here on the island. It was just slightly warmer at Trudeau Airport with 0.4C (33F), missing the record low of 0.0C (32F) set in 1979.

Temperatures will warm today with a southerly breeze and increasing clouds, highs will be around 16C (61F). Showers will move into the region by this afternoon and last until around midnight. We are not looking for a huge amount of rainfall but anything is good at this point. With the month halfway over we have recorded only about 10-15mm of rain in the metro region. Conditions remain very dry with an elevated fire threat, but no burn ban as of this time. That may change over the weekend - after today the forecast looks dry right through the Victoria Day holiday. Temperatures will be in the low 20's with a mix of sun and cloud.
