A Note on June Weather in Montreal

Keep in mind that the weather during June tends to be nice. T-shirts, shorts and sandals will be great in the day; later on you’ll want something a little warmer, as nights can still be cool. Do bring pants and good shoes along in case of a rainy-cool day. Bug spray helps if you plan to be out in the evening.
