|Warm, muggy weather will dominate the east coast and southern Quebec once more this week. (AccuWeather)|
There has been a slight improvement in the drought conditions in southern Quebec after the rainfall of late August. September however has been very dry once again, with only 23.4mm of precipitation so far. Montreal normally receives 83.1mm of rainfall for September. We have plenty of catching up to do. Showers and thunderstorms over the weekend missed Montreal, with only 3 or 4mm falling in the city. The next chance for rain will come along a cold front Thursday. Cooler, more seasonable weather is expected to arrive by next weekend. However it will be short lived, as the much warmer than normal Great Lakes continue to modify the cooler fall air as it moves southeast from northern Canada.
