We got through Montreal’s weather bomb, and survived our first serious winter storm of the season. Now we’re getting ready for a mini-heat wave?
Put away your snow pants and get out your sunglasses.
According to Environment Canada, sunshine, showers and temperatures that are 10°C above average are expected in Montreal leading up to the weekend.
With Montreal hosting so many of the best New Year's Eve events and parties around, a substantially warmer-than-usual December 31 will have an impact on what you wear—and how you get around town.
Historically, the average low on December 31 in Montreal is -14°C.
Temperatures will start climbing on Thursday and continue to stay well above freezing until January 1, with highs between 6-7°C expected on Saturday and Sunday.
We’re seeing some showers into the weekend, so it’s a good time to make the most of Montreal’s best indoor things to do—including eating at one of Montreal’s best restaurants, or hanging out at the city’s best bars.
