Montreal's Christmas Weather Is Forecasted To Be Extremely Gloomy

2020 isn't done with us yet. Environment Canada is forecasting some extremely gloomy Montreal Christmas weather — an appropriate end to a pulverizing year.

The federal weather agency has issued a special weather statement for the Montreal area ahead of "a rainy and windy Christmas day with 20 to 50 millimeters of rain."

20-50 mm Rain expected on Christmas

"On Christmas Eve, a strong southerly flow will bring mild temperatures, sustained winds and rainfall over the whole province," Environment Canada says.

"These conditions will spread from west to east until Christmas day," when a "temperature drop below the freezing mark and a transition from rain to snow may cause icy road conditions."

The Christmas Eve rain "may cause flash floods and pooling on roads."

The agency's seven-day forecast for the metropolis shows a high of 12 C on Friday with the temperature dipping to -4 C at night.

This wet weather, combined with incoming holiday restrictions, is sure to make for a pretty sombre Christmas.
