After the dangerously hot summer we had this year, it should come as no surprise that today’s expected temperature of 29°C would make it the hottest September 17th in the recorded history of Montreal.
The city’s certainly holding on to the last official week of summer.
According to Environment Canada, before today’s expected heat, the hottest September 17th on record was back in 1942 when the city dealt with a 28.9°C Thursday.
Besides starting the week off at 29°C today, we’re also slated to get a humidex value of 35°C by late afternoon.
Let’s revel in the heat, Montreal. It’s going to be February before we know it.
The weather website urges citizens to drink plenty of fluids, wear sunscreen, breathable clothing and to check in on vulnerable neighbours during times of excessive heat.
