Sunshine all week as summer comes to an end

A perfect end to summer is expected across southern Quebec, Ontario and New England.
Ontario, Quebec and New England will have a spectacular end to the summer and start to fall 2015. The warm and muggy air of last week was replaced by a cooler more seasonable airmass on Sunday after the passage of a cold front Saturday night. That front bought a modest amount of rainfall with as much as 12mm (0.5 inches) reported in southern Quebec. Isolated thunderstorms accompanied the front in Montreal Saturday evening, but no severe weather was reported. Strong high pressure is now in control of the weather with nothing but sunshine and warm temperatures all week. Across the entire region, expect highs in the 21 to 24C (70-75F) range with overnight lows from 5 to 9C (40-50F). The longer nights mean we may see some morning dew and fog around locally. This morning temperatures are the coolest they have been since last spring, L'Ile Perrot is at 6.7C (44F), while St. Anicet is only 3C (39F).

Looking ahead we have a rather rare celestial event on the night of September 27th. The full harvest moon will also be a "supermoon" and go through a total lunar eclipse. I will have much more on that later this week.
