Forecasts Show Sunny 18 C Weather Coming To Montreal This Week So At Least It Will Be Nice

Will we crack 20 C? One can dream.

Montreal Weather Forecasts Show Sunny Skies & 18 C This Week
  • Montreal weather forecasts from The Weather Network and Environment Canada show high temperatures of 18 C this week.
  • On several occasions, government officials have encouraged solitary walks as a way to maintain physical and mental health so long as residents adhere to social distancing rules.

Spring marches on even if we're stuck in one place. The seven-day forecast from The Weather Network shows 18 C temperatures hitting the city for three days this week. We'll get the first hint of warm Montreal weather on Wednesday with "a mix of sun and clouds," before two days of rain.

The sun will return this weekend, however, bringing the sweet 18 C with it on both Saturday and Sunday.

The forecast from Environment Canada is less optimistic, showing a high of 16 C on Wednesday and a chance of more showers on Saturday.

The federal meteorological agency does, however, show a high of 19 C on Sunday.

Will the city break 20 C for the first time in 2020? We can only hope.

Temperatures in the high teens will nonetheless be a welcome break for a city battered by bad news.

The nice weather could be an opportunity for residents to take solo walks in their own neighbourhoods, an activity still permitted — and even encouraged — by government officials.

"You'd have to be out of touch not to see that there are people who are tired of being home right now," Premier Legault said on April 21.

"It is possible, as I have often said, to go for a walk, to stand two metres away from other people, to wash your hands. So there are ways to get out of the house while respecting certain rules."

And just because the province is preparing its plans for gradual deconfinement, does not mean residents should feel like they can take public health directives any less seriously, Dr. Arruda said Monday.

"It won't be time yet for parties or family meals with the elderly."

"I told you that the flattening of the curve depended on everyone working together. We had it, but now, with the spring, with the good weather, it's going to be difficult to stay locked in, but we're going to have to continue to do it because otherwise our gradual or progressive operation [to reopen] will be cancelled out by population movements that shouldn't be taking place at the moment."

Police across the province are also still handing out fines of between $1,000 and $6,000 to individuals who disregard social distancing rules.

Hopefully, the incoming warmth is the beginning of an upward temperature trend.

Stay tuned for more news.
