And FWIW, the "average" last freeze date for Montreal (YUL) is April 25, so rather than this weather being "record breaking", it's actually pretty typical for Montreal at this time of the year.
And typical fall freeze/frost date is Oct 11 for a growing season of about 160 days (vice Vancouver's of 230 days).
Well, I still stand by my comment. Snow fell as far south as Kansas which is almost unheard of this time of the year. In fact this is their biggest snowfall so late in the season ever (and records date back to pre 1900).
This was a record breaking event. So technically there was nothing incorrect with what I said.

"Save for a record breaking cold event, there is no more potential for sub zero temperatures for Montreal."

You be the judge if this is typical.

We made it up to 4C today. Periods of snow this morning. It took us until 1PM to climb above freezing (when the sun showed up). We were below freezing for a good 15 or 16 hours. Absolute madness.

Low of -3C (wind chill of -9) this morning. Just brutal.

The warmspot was Squamish, BC at 22.5C.
