Cooler & Drier

Just a few high clouds dot the sky in Montreal yesterday as temperatures again reached into the mid 30's. (ValleyWX)
As we head into the first of two consecutive long weekends here in Quebec, the weather is looking cooler and drier. We hit highs well into the 30's again on Thursday with 33.3C at the airport just short of the record high. Unofficially it was as warm as 36C on the island of Montreal with numerous stations reporting 34C including mine on L'Ile Perrot. Records were set yesterday at St Jean sur Richelieu at 33.8C, St Anicet at 34C, Cornwall 34C, Toronto 34.4C and Ottawa 34.6C.

This morning a weak cold front has cleared Montreal with no precipitation and winds are now out of the west. While it is still warm, it is noticeably drier. We are expecting a sunny day today and into the start of the weekend with warm temperatures near 27C. By Monday low pressure will be approaching southern Ontario and Quebec with showers and cooler weather expected into the middle of next week.
