Sunday turned out to be a very cold day with a well below normal high of only 14C (58F) in Montreal along with spotty showers and gusty northwest winds. The rainfall to end the month in Montreal brought us up to 77.2mm for May, just shy of the normal of 81.2mm. Most of the rain was convective in nature so it was highly variable around the city with only 60 to 65mm reported in Vaudreuil and L'Ile Perrot for the month, but 108.2mm at the McTavish station in downtown Montreal. May was a very warm month despite what many think. The average temperature was 16.6C (61.8F) at Trudeau Airport well above the 30 year average of 13.4C (56.1F).
June will start chilly as strong low pressure passes south of Montreal. Showers and clouds will dominate the weather through Tuesday night with temperatures no better than 15C (59F). High pressure will move into southern Quebec by Wednesday with sunny, warm and dry weather forecast to end the week.
