As Sandy weakens Ontario expects moderate wind and rain

Approximately 200,000 residents of Ontario, Quebec and Nova Scotia lost power in widely-scattered outages on Monday, many of which were quickly repaired.

Apart from some trees brought down by strong winds, urban Ottawa was largely unaffected by Monday night's blustery weather. Local talk and news shows had so little home-town damage to discuss that most featured stories or interviews about Sandy's impact in the U.S.

Tuesday in Ottawa was unusually warm – with a high in the low 60s and a mix of sun and clouds.

Even though the remains of Sandy are heading in the direction of Ottawa, CTV Ottawa's weatherman, J.J. Clarke, had nothing scary to say: “So, showers in the forecast for the next couple of days and getting much cooler, might even mix with flurries by the time we get to Friday and 2 degrees [35 degrees Fahrenheit]. And then Friday and Saturday: brighter, drier.”

All Sandy is expected to do in the capital region now is make Halloween damp for trick or treaters.
