Strong thunderstorms today
Today a sharp cold front will bring an end to this most recent warm spell as it moves across the St. Lawrence Valley later this afternoon. In advance of the front, gusty southwest winds will reach 60km/h in Montreal with a warm, muggy high of 25C (77F). Thunderstorms will develop by 1pm in southern Quebec as well as New York and Vermont and move northeast across the region. Some of the storms may produce small hail and strong winds up to 100km/h. The weather should clear late tonight or early Wednesday followed by dry but much colder weather for the balance of the week. High temperatures will only be around 15C (59F), with lows of 5C (41F). We may even see a little frost by Friday night in areas away from the city.
