April has brought its fair share of rain to the province and it may even prove to be one of the wettest on record.
So far, the Montreal region has seen a total of 147 mm of rain. The mark to beat is 159 mm, dating back 75 years to 1942.
With rain in the forecast Sunday, that record could very well be shattered.
Even if this April doesn’t go down in the history books, the 284 mm of rain over Montreal so far this year, is a record.
And while it may have seemed chilly throughout the month, temperatures were in keeping with seasonal values.
According to Environment Canada meteorologist Simon Legault, the first weeks of May are expected to be colder than normal, with more rain on the horizon.
So much for the old adage April showers bring May flowers.
