It was not a snowstorm, but snow on May 9th was not a welcome sight. About 0.2cm fell at the airport with as much as 1cm off island. The temperature recovered slightly Sunday to a balmy 5C but fell just below freezing this morning. A light breeze kept away any frost but such will not be the case tonight. Under clear skies and calm winds we can expect lows below freezing with frost and freeze warnings in effect across the region including Montreal, Ottawa and south into New York and New England. Cover up any flowers or tender vegetation and say goodbye to your tulips! A slow warming trend is expected for the balance of the week.
