Sunshine & cold to start week
There is not a whole lot to talk about as far as Montreal weather is concerned this morning. It is another cold Monday with current temperatures between -14C and -18C across southern Quebec. Between 1-2cm of very fluffy light snow fell overnight with clearing skies now and sunshine expected all day today. It will be cold with highs no better than -8C. It will drop to -18C tonight and up to -11C on Tuesday with lots of sun.
The sunshine will last well into Thursday before a winter storm takes shape along the Eastern Seaboard. The forecast for this system at this time is all over the place with a track well out into the Atlantic to one that hugs the coast. Either scenario will likely keep Montreal and eastern Ontario on the western edge of the heavier snowfall. It will snow Friday but it could just be a few centimeters here in the St. Lawrence Valley with more to the south and east. Later computer model runs should help solidify a track as well as the location and intensity of the precipitation.
