Meanwhile an arctic cold front will bring an end to the mild temperatures in Ontario and Quebec. Montreal was 0C (32F) Friday and can expect a high of -1C (30F) today under cloudy skies. The cold front will cross the region late this afternoon and this evening with some light snow possible. At best 1-3cm may fall locally across southern Quebec and eastern Ontario. Temperatures will fall quickly overnight under gusty northwest winds of 20-40km/h, down to -14C (7F), along with cold wind chill values. Sunshine returns Sunday, but it will be breezy and cold. For most of this upcoming week arctic high pressure remains in control, temperatures will be cold with lows around -18C (0F) and highs no better than -10C (14F). The next chance for snow in Montreal will come along yet another arctic front late in the week.
