Montreal Breaks Fall Heat Record

Never before seen Summer weather in October.
Montreal Breaks Fall Heat Record

Yesterday started off like a pretty typical Fall day.

It was dark, it was cold and it was rainy.

But in the afternoon, when the sun came out it got hot... really hot.

I was walking around outside in a t-shirt, regretting the fact that I was wearing tuque (it was too late to remove it, my hair was compromised), when I saw a girl wearing shorts and a tank top.

That's not something I was expecting to see considering the floor was blanketed with leaves.

Temperatures reached 24°C and in some areas it hit close to 28°C.

That's 10°C degrees higher than the historical average, and more than 20°C hotter than the average October temperature.

This is the hottest it has ever been on October 18th since 1968 when the temperature reached 25°C.

So I hope you took advantage of this because the next few days are going to be cold and rainy.

There's also a new update from the Accuweather that officially confirms this winter will be the snowiest in years.

Great news for the ski resorts and bad new for everyone else.

Luckily for us it's not all bad news. These last few days have been some of the sunniest and warmest  we've seen all summer, and it's going to stay that way for the next 7 days!
