According to YUL Weather Records, the last time Montreal experienced a similar snowstorm took place on January 16th, 1920, when 30.2 cm (just over a foot) of snow fell, and the daytime high – the high, mind you – reached only -19.4 (-2.9F).
Meteorologists and historians believe that this weekend’s snowfall could have been the coldest snowstorm in Montreal in a century.
On Sunday, temperatures dropped below -15 degrees (5 F) and snowfall was expected to exceed 25 cm (almost a foot).

“Help me understand this,” says Martin. “Every year we see news of strong snowfall..and each year they return. Should not these blizzards stop or reduce with AGW or Climate Change?”
