Strong storms for Tuesday morning commute in Montreal
Last night the strongest thunderstorm so far this year to affect the West Island and L'Ile Perrot dumped close to 20mm of rain in less than 30 minutes at my home. Gusty winds and frequent lightning accompanied the 10pm storm. It has been a partly cloudy, humid day in Montreal today with high temperatures around 27C (81F). Tonight will be muggy with mild lows near 18C (65F). Tuesday will start off with widespread rain and thunderstorms from the pre-dawn hours through midday. Once the showers and storms move off to the east of Montreal, skies should clear, but it will be very windy, gusting from 40-70km/h in the St. Lawrence Valley. Temperatures will be mild again, up to 26C (79F). A spell of quiet, cool and dry weather is then expected from Wednesday through Friday.
