Environment Canada lifts week-long heat warning for Montreal

Jul 6 2018, 10:24 pm

Quebec dealt with a major heat wave for seven gruelling and dangerous days.

Thankfully, Environment Canada has announced that the heat wave warning for Quebec has now been lifted.

The deadly weather that rocked the east coast was attributed to 33 deaths across Quebec, according to provincial authorities. An influx of phone calls to Urgences-Santé had ambulance drivers and paramedics working tirelessly to help heat-related symptoms all across the province.

At some points over the past week, the humidex factor even reached the mid-40s.

With the heat wave subsiding, the weather in Montreal will return to hot, but not life-threatening temperatures.

The light breeze around the city is a welcomed alternative to the muggy humidity and we’re expecting highs of 24° C for Friday, 28° C for Saturday, and 30° C on Sunday. Nighttime temperatures will also be much cooler, dropping to 13°, 18° and 20° respectively.
