Time to put those jackets away –for at least a bit– because it’s finally going to get warmer in Montreal.
According to Environment Canada, Wednesday will see the highest temperatures forecasted this week as it is expected to reach 12°C.
This Wednesday’s temperatures come very close to Montreal’s historical February 21, 1981, high of 13.9° C
Unfortunately, there will be no sun to accompany the warmer temperatures as the forecast predicts rain for most of the day.
The recent spell of warm weather has prompted Environment Canada to issue a special weather statement for Montreal and surrounding regions.
“A warm front from the Central United States will move across the province over the next few days. Temperatures will gradually rise reaching more than 10 degrees on Wednesday,” said Environment Canada in a statement.
“Rainfall amounts between 20 and 30 millimeters are expected between this evening and Wednesday. The rain combined with the runoff from the melting of snow could cause localized flooding.”
According to the weather forecast, the rain will clear up on Thursday, as sunny conditions are expected, but snow will return on Friday.
