For the second time in as many days, and continuing with the common theme of July in Quebec, Environment Canada has issued yet another heat warning for Montreal and its surrounding areas.
Today’s warning does not come solo. There’s also the risk of thunderstorms, a dangerously high humidex and strong winds.
“The temperatures combined with the humidity will produce humidex values of 35°C to 38°C,” According to the Environment Canada. “There will be a warm and humid airmass covering Southern Quebec today that will persist through until Wednesday evening.”
Moreover, the minimum temperatures at night will remain above 20°C.
The uncomfortable and dangerous conditions will affect Châteauguay, Laval, Longueuil and the Island of Montreal.
Montreal will also deal with southern winds of up to 20 km/h and wind gusts up to 40 km/h.
Environment Canada recommends drinking plenty of water, wearing breathable clothing, hats and sunscreen and people are urged to check-in on vulnerable neighbours, friends and family members.
Stay cool, Montreal!
