I hope you all know that when I write these bizarre weather anomalies that are forecasted for Montreal, I have just as hard a time believing it when I read it as you likely do when we write about it.
Take this impending 34°C we're expected to feel later this week...
When I read that I twice checked to make sure I had the location properly set, because I couldn't believe such a high temperature was forecasted for us in the latter half of September.
But, according to The Weather Network, next weekend is looking like a toasty one, with Saturday and Sunday both reaching mid-to-high 20°C and the accompanying "feels like" temperatures are both expected to reach 30°C and higher.
So, while I feel like we just keep saying this week after week, this might truly be our last taste of summer. But whether it is or not, it certainly will be a great weekend to get outdoors and do something fun before that fall chill, wherever it is, finally sets in.
Below is this week's forecast for Montreal, and as I mentioned above, you'll notice that this coming weekend is when we're going to see those mid-to-high 20°C temperatures that are going to have Montreal feeling more like 30°C or 34°C, respectively.
The rest of the week is also going to be pretty beautiful, with today and tomorrow lingering in a more seasonally-average temperature range, but Thursday and Friday quickly picking up warmth as we head into the weekend.
The strong Bermuda high on the southeastern coast pushing up against a cool air track coming from the north means that Montreal is again trapped, as we were all summer, between two competing air masses that inevitably will clash.
This means unruly temperatures and the potential for increases in precipitation.
