Yesterday it rained most of the day and the temperature reached 54F. Today is bright and sunny and the temperature is 70F. Typical spring weather - something new every day. Sometimes something new every few hours

WE have snow and 25 degree temperatures. Could be 60 come Thursday, though. Just roll the dice!

Unfortunately, Cleveland isn't faring much better - hence, today's baseball game was cancelled. It could have been a "Go" last week Friday, since temperatures were near 70 and it was sunny. Today? No snow, but really cold. Like end-of-season football cold. This pretty much nails weather in either locale, though.

Yesterday there was no snow to be seen out my patio door. Today we got this and a weather warning:

Rainfall Warning

Montral Island area

Issued at 15:45 Wednesday 06 April 2016
Rain, heavy at times is expected. The frozen ground has a reduced ability to absorb this rainfall. A major system will track across Quebec on Thursday and Friday. Snow will change over to rain as the system approaches. Overall, rainfall amounts will be in the order of 25 to 35 mm over the mentioned areas, except over higher elevations of Central Quebec where rainfall amounts could reach 40 to 50 mm by Friday morning. Localized flooding in low-lying areas is possible.

To put those numbers into perspective, 25.4 mm = 1 inch. Good thing I'm not in a low-lying area.

This is the current view out my patio door, and it's still snowing:

Expected high today of 9C (48F) with enough rain that there is a more serious flooding warning than yesterday, but thankfully, still only in low lying areas. This is what it looked like 10 minutes ago:

So it's your fault is it?

After ten days of mild and springlike weather we've gone back to thick layers and woolly hats. Last night I had to get up and fill a hot water bottle!

The Met Office guy on television said it was coming from the USA.
