Another roller coaster of temperatures en route to Montreal
Another round of hot and windy weather will set in in southern Quebec this week. Just days after a weekend storm that brought double-digit heat and wind gusts of over 100 km / h to Montreal, another American low set in.
Unlike the weekend storm, which cut electricity to hundreds of thousands of Hydro-Quebec customers, the next system is not expected to have the same impact as the one from Wednesday to Thursday.
Environment and Climate Change Canada has issued freezing rain warnings for parts of the province with about two millimeters of ice expected.
Roads and driveways can get slippery for a while on Wednesday afternoon and evening before the wet weather turns to regular rain Wednesday evening.
Montreal expects to see precipitation in the form of light snow Wednesday evening. A few centimeters are possible during the evening drive.
The city is the subject of a special weather report, as light, patchy freezing rain could mix briefly before changing to straight rain.
Once again, Montreal will experience a predominantly rainy event as temperatures soar to double digits by Thursday.
Montreal could see a high of 12 ° C on Thursday, which would be a new record for December 16.
Once the system moves on Friday, winds are expected to pick up. This time, the winds in Montreal should be less intense, with gusts of up to 60 km / h.
Daytime highs will drop below freezing until the weekend, so expect slippery surfaces.
Montreal expects to see light snow to start the weekend, with temperatures closer to seasonal values.
Normal high: -3 C
Normal low: -11 C
