Another spectacular weekend for Montreal

High pressure has settled into the region this morning as a cold front slides off the New England coast. Temperatures are a little crisp around the area with a hint of fall in the air. Temperatures range from 12 to 16C with a very heavy dew. It will warm quickly today with afternoon highs up to 23C. The weekend looks perfect for anything outdoors with sunshine and high temperatures in the 25 to 27C range.

On Wednesday warm air surged into the area for what may be the last 30C highs of the season. Several records were broken including 30C (86F) at St. Anicet/Lancaster. I recorded 30.0C here as well on L'Ile Perrot, the warmest temperature for August. It was slightly cooler at the airport as usual, reaching 29C.

Showers and some thunder on Thursday produced a little over 13mm (0.5") rainfall here on the island. Welcome moisture for the lawns and gardens. Both Trudeau and Ottawa had about 8mm, while St. Hubert on the South Shore recorded the same as here at home, around 13mm.
