May 8 2020, 6:25 am

Mother Nature is capping off your workweek (do we still call it that?) with some frost and temperatures below the freezing mark.

Environment Canada has issued a frost advisory for the island area, calling for temperatures to dip “near or under the freezing mark overnight tonight.”

According to the alert, the relatively cool temperatures for this time of year will persist for “several more days” afterward. The frost advisory for Southwestern Quebec may continue through to Tuesday morning.

“Take preventative measures to protect frost-sensitive plants and trees,” the weather agency said.

Frost advisories are issued when temperatures are expected to reach the freezing mark during the growing season, leading to potential damage, and destruction to plants and crops.

Issued just after 4 am on Friday morning, the advisory is in effect for the following areas:

  • ChĂąteauguay – La Prairie area
  • Laval area
  • Longueuil – Varennes area
  • Montreal Island area

According to The Weather Network, it currently feels like -2ÂșC in Montreal and temperatures are expected to heat up a tad this weekend, hitting 5ÂșC and 9ÂșC on Friday and Saturday, respectively.
