Only in Canada could you go from 20C weather on Monday, a snowstorm on Tuesday, 20C weather by Friday and thunderstorms and 24C by Sunday. What a weather week. Power was slowly being restored across Vermont, NY and southern Quebec after the record setting snowstorm that saw nearly 2 feet of snow fall across some regions. Montreal had 7cm which melted by the end of the day on Wednesday. Another strong low pressure area is moving across Montana and the northern plains and into Ontario. A warm front will generate some showers this evening in the region followed by a partly sunny and warm Saturday and Sunday. The trialling cold front will sweep the Montreal area late Sunday with showers and thunderstorms. Severe weather is expected again this weekend in the plains and southern states. Meanwhile this storm delivered a powerful snow event to Alberta with heavy snow and winds gusting to over 100km/h in the southern half of the province. As much as 70cm fell in the foothills with about 10cm in Calgary. Numerous roads were closed and flights delayed.
Awesome win by the Habs, I through in this Aislin cartoon from Thursday's Montreal Gazette into the mix. They begin the next round against Pittsburgh tonight after defeating Washington in 7 games.
