Chalk it up to the luck of the Irish.

An unseasonably warm air mass is headed for Quebec, and is predicted to bring with it some of the summer-like conditions Ontario has been enjoying for the past week.

In the west and southwest of the province, highs are expected to be between 15 C and 20 C Saturday and Sunday.

At night, low temperatures are expected to remain above freezing.

If the province does see the forecasted highs, it will be record-breaking.

Meteorologist André Cantin of Environment Canada said that in his 30-year career, he has never seen such warm days in March.

The normal temperature for this time of year is 3 C during the daytime and –6 C at night.

The warm weather is expected to continue for several days.

That’s good news for St. Patrick’s Day Parade goers, who should be able to enjoy the show in light jackets rather than the usual parkas.

The parade starts at noon Sunday at du Fort and Ste-Catherine streets and heads east toward Phillips Square.

The event will mark the 188th consecutive St. Patrick’s Day Parade held in Montreal.
