- The Environment Canada Montreal weather forecast for this week includes a partly sunny and warm Saturday and Sunday before the likely return of snow on Monday.
- We could be in for above-normal spring temperatures, however.
This year, the meteorological shift toward spring seems to have begun early. Positive temperatures are back — at least for the time being — clearing the air of its wintry haze and the streets of their hazardous ice sheets. This (relatively) warm spell should even extend through the weekend. Environment Canada forecasts mild Montreal weather through Sunday.
Though on Saturday, temperatures aren't predicted to break above freezing, sunny skies will ensure Montrealers can get out and enjoy all the things to do around the city.
Sunday, however, will likely have a high of 4 C. Clouds will damper the premature springtime cheer, but expect so see some especially optimistic people shedding their deep-winter jackets.
That one guy you know who wears shorts at every opportunity will also probably do just that.
He shouldn't pack away his pants just yet, though. The city will plunge back into winter weather at the beginning of next week.
Negative temperatures will persist between Sunday night and Tuesday. Right now, there's even a 60% chance of flurries on Monday, which will have a high of minus three.
On Tuesday, we'll reach new temperature heights, reaching 5 C. But "periods of snow or rain" likely mean that no one will get to enjoy it.
