Warmer weather for Montreal
We are finally going to see a warming trend over the next 48 hours with a broad southwest flow bringing in a much needed break from the frigid cold. Today will be a rather docile day with a few flurries around and partly cloudy skies. Montreal should make it to -6C, we are currently -13C. Winds will be lighter today, thankfully, after three days of blowing and drifting snow across areas highways. The break from the wind will be short lived as a southwest flow up to 50km/h will develop this evening ahead of a weak front. Some light snow overnight and Friday is possible with perhaps 1-3cm. Temperatures on Friday and over the weekend will be even milder, getting close to the freezing point. Another frontal boundary and low pressure area will cross southern Quebec late Saturday with perhaps some measurable snow. At this time it looks like 5-10cm before skies clear out for the big event Sunday, no not the Superbowl, Groundhog Day!
