Montreal Wakes Up To An End Of Winter Snowstorm (15 photos)

Yesterday the whole city was in a panic because of the blizzard warning we received. Lucky for us, the warning has been cancelled and so far it looks like just a regular snow fall.

However, let's not forget that this is Montreal and the weather love playing tricks on us, so who knows how the rest of the day will go.

Here's a look at what Montreal looks like this morning.

2021 Was Montreal's Hottest Year On Record

Here's what's in store for the first few months of 2022.

It's official — 2021 was the hottest year on record for Montreal, according to Environment Canada. It beat out the previous hottest years, 1998 and 2012, by a mean few hundredths of a degree.

This rise in temperature in Montreal is attributed to new weather patterns, causing scorching temperatures in June, August, September and October. "August and October were record-breaking months," said Environment Canada spokesperson Simon Legault.

There's A Growing Movement For Quebec City To Host The 2030 Winter Olympics

The Quebec 2030 committee has released a detailed plan.

A committee called Quebec 2030 — which has more than 400 companies and 250 people supporting it — is pushing the government to submit a bid to host the 2030 Winter Olympics in Quebec City.

In a new 24-page document, the committee presents its arguments for why Quebec City is best suited to host the 2030 Winter Olympic Games — most notably, the lack of natural snow in South Korea at the 2018 Winter Games in Pyeongchang

Why The F*** Is It Snowing In Montreal Today? We Asked Experts

Is this normal after 20-degree days? Is it global warming? Could it snow in May?

Just as Montrealers were getting used to summer-like weather, the province was hit with the s-word — that's right: it's been snowing across Quebec all day. 

It's not like it's never snowed here in April before. But after a number of 20-degree days (or warmer), we're simply not having it. As we looked up at the sky and cursed the heavens, asking, "Why the f*** is this happening?" we decided it would be more productive to ask actual experts the same question.
