Perfect late summer weather to continue for Montreal

This NOAA water vapor image clearly shows the ridge of high pressure over the northeast US that is responsible for our perfect late summer weather. Sunshine and well above normal temperatures will prevail into Saturday for Montreal, while the clouds and rain remain well to our north and across the southeast US coast..
 Montreal is well on its way to another record high today as the temperature has already surpassed the long term average for the date, and it is only 10am. Montreal is currently 23C (73F) with a forecast high of 29C (85F) expected under sunny skies. The record high for today established in 1942 is 28.9C.

On Wednesday the temperature reached 28C (83F) at Trudeau Airport breaking the previous record of 26.8C (80F) set in 1991. The normal high for this time of year is 19C (66F). Strong high pressure centered along the Atlantic coast is responsible for the perfect late summer weather, and it will remain in place through Saturday. Late Saturday a cold front will bring some rain that will last into Sunday. Sunday will be cooler at 20C, but still above normal. Looking ahead to next week, sunshine and warm weather will return once again as we welcome Autumn on September 23rd. Temperatures will again reach the middle 20's. No cold air in in sight through the end of the month and even into early October for southern Quebec.
