Environment Canada issues frost advisory for Montreal

May 5 2020, 6:40 am

The month of May and frost don’t typically go hand-in-hand but Mother Nature seems to have other plans for Montreal.

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

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 Saturday morning.

“Frost may damage some crops in prone areas,” the weather agency said. “Take preventative measures to protect frost-sensitive plants and trees.”

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 before 9 am on Tuesday 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, once Tuesday’s sun sets, temperatures are expected to drop to single-digits and feel like -1ÂșC overnight.
