And it could feel even hotter, according to another forecast.

The Montreal weather forecast shows temperatures gradually increasing through the week, culminating in two 30-degree days on Friday and Saturday.

Consider the early summer weather payback for that mid-April snowshower (or evidence of a rapidly warming planet with catastrophic consequences for human, animal and plant life — your call).

The Environment Canada seven-day forecast for the Montreal area shows a full week of sunny skies and daytime highs swinging 12 degrees between now and Saturday.

Those 30-degree days could make history. The federal weather agency says the highest temperature on record (since 1942) for Montreal on May 13 was 28.5 C in 1992.

The Weather Network puts actual temps a bit lower on Friday and Saturday — 27-degree highs both days — but says it could feel even hotter.

It projects the humidex (the "feels like" temperature) reaching 31 and 33 on Friday and Saturday, respectively.

Alas, this period of hot weather is only a sample of things to come. The following week won't be as nice, with clouds and daily highs ranging from 16 to 22 degrees between Monday, May 16, and Sunday, May 22, according to The Weather Network.
