Wet weather continues for Quebec & Ontario

It will be another day of muggy, humid air with scattered afternoon showers and thunderstorms and temperatures near 28C. Overnight lows will remain warm, near 21C for Montreal. Yesterday we managed another 30C day here on L'Ile Perrot before clouds thickened around 1pm and storms moved across the region. The most intense activity moved across Eastern Ontario and into New York and Vermont. Additional storms with very heavy rain over the Adirondacks moved into the Champlain Valley and remained south of Montreal. There was a few decent cells across the middle portion of the Island of Montreal with some hail and heavy rain, but otherwise it was a pretty quiet afternoon here on L'Ile Perrot. Look for the same today with some morning breaks followed by thunderstorms after lunch.

The ground is becoming saturated in many parts of southern Quebec, New York and Vermont. The news for the weekend does not look any better at this time. More showers and thunderstorms are possible Friday with a general rain over the Canada Day weekend as an upper level low moves east from Manitoba. We will iron out the details as we get closer, but some flooding is possible for portions of New England. Temperatures will drop below normal in the showers and cloud cover.
