Flying MSP-YUL On 8/28: Impact Of Irene?

Sat Aug 27, 2011 11:21 pm

I'm seeing some sources that tell of high winds as far north as Montreal. I'll by arriving around 10:30 pm from MSP. ANy crystal ball out there about what to expect?!

Thank you!

I am no meteorologist but the cane is headed north and Montreal is not too far from New York City. weather.com is calling for "heavy rain and heavy wind" Sunday night with a 100% chance of rain both days in Montreal as the storm heads north but its headed to the East of Montreal. MSP-YUL seems like they can pick a nice path to avoid the hurricane but you might get some turbulence Sunday night on landing? Let us know how it goes

Weather network is forecasting winds at 45 km/h (less than 30 MPH) in the afternoon dropping to 35 km/h in the evening. Bigger issue will be very heavy rain, 40-60 mm (1.4-2.5 inches) from afternoon until evening.

Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.
