As Canadians we talk about the weather relentlessly, I just talk about it a little more! I hope to provide useful information to my family, friends and all those who simply enjoy talking about the weather. While I try to include information of interest from all over North America, my primary region of concern is the St. Lawrence Valley of Quebec, Ontario, and New York, as well as our neighbouring regions. This Blog is dedicated to my late father for inspiring my interest in weather.

Frigid weekend for Montreal

Another shot of arctic air has arrived in southern Quebec this morning. Skies are clear, but it is breezy and very cold in Montreal with a 10am temperature of -21C and windchill values down in the minus 30's. It will be sunny all day with increasing clouds late in the day. A weak front will cross the area tonight with a just a few flurries. It will be cold again on Sunday and well into next week. Another winter storm is forecast to develop today over the Midwest US and spread snow to places like Chicago, Detroit and Pittsburgh before heading east to NYC and Boston on Sunday. We will likely remain on the northern edge of this system late Sunday and Monday with just some clouds, but it will have to be monitored for a northward shift.
