Cool and dry week ahead for southern Quebec

The current storm track should keep Montreal dry all this week, with below-normal temperatures. (AccuWeather)
Strong high pressure continues to provide Montreal and southern Quebec with sunshine, but cool weather as well. Daytime highs have been below normal, either side of 10C (50F), while overnight lows have dropped just below the freezing mark. A warm front to our south is the dividing line between very warm and humid summery air across the Mid-Atlantic states, and the cool weather here in Quebec. That warm front will produce an area of light rain, and even some wet snow, across the Adirondacks and Green Mountains tonight. Light rain is also expected south and west of Kingston, towards Toronto.

In Montreal, however, strong high pressure should hold all this week, with the current forecast looking great. Expect nothing but sunshine today, with a high near 10C (50F). A few clouds may work their way into southern Quebec tonight, but any precipitation should remain south of the US border. The overnight low will be very chilly, dropping to -3C (27F). Any clouds will clear early Tuesday, and we can expect sunshine all day, continuing well into next weekend in Montreal. Temperatures will be cool, ranging from 9 to 12C (49 to 54F), but warming towards the end of the forecast period.
