Warmer Temperatures Predicted To Return To Montreal Next Week

Are Montrealers looking grumpier than usual these days? Or is it just me? I think it's the unusually cold and snowy weather that set into town literally overnight.

TL;DR Over the past few days Montreal has experienced unseasonably freezing cold tempratures. According the The Weather Network's 14-day trend and 7-day forecast, Montreal should expect average to slightly above average seasonal temperatures to return the coming week. 

From one day to the next – boom, winter arrived. One month early, too.

Technically the first day of winter lands on December 21st, the winter solstice, also known as the most depressing day of the entire year because it's the day with the least amount of sunlight.

Moving onto the weather forecast, let's stay optimistic Montreal, because it looks like warmer weather is coming our way.

By warmer, I don't mean throw on your cut-off shorts and bust out the tank tops again – more like the return of seasonal and reasonable temperatures.

As you can see looking at the 7-day forecast, the temperature will start to rise over the weekend, and even take us into above average daytime high temperatures early next week.

I know wintery weather just started, but an additional 5 degrees sounds like heaven right now. 

It's time to shed a couple layers for a week or two before the real intense December cold starts setting in.


Here's What's Open & What's Closed On Labour Day In Montreal

There are still a ton of things to do this Monday holiday!
  • Here's a short list of what's open and what's closed on Labour Day in Montreal.
  • If you're heading out, make sure to call ahead to your destination to inquire about reduced hours.

Yes, it's a long weekend! Three uninterrupted days to relax, have fun, and not think for two seconds about things like school or work, or other responsibilities until Tuesday morning. Not to be too depressing but it will be six weeks before we get another official long weekend. 

But let's focus on the positive! This is usually one of the summer weekends that people are trying to pack in their last days of camping or chalet time. But if you're planning to stay in the city it's good to know what's open and what's closed so you can plan out your Labour Day weekend.
