Montreal emerges from heatwave with showers expected for the day

Jun 24 2020, 8:12 am

The heat warning issued for Montreal has finally ended as much needed rain is expected to hit the province throughout the day.

On June 19, Environment Canada updated its special weather alert to a heat warning for Montreal and its surrounding areas as a “warm and humid airmass” was predicted to be sticking around southern Quebec. While “feels like” temperatures reached over 40°C, and stuck around for five days, Wednesday is coming in with showers, a high of 24°C, and a low of 16°C.

Winds are predicted to be around 30 km/h and can gust up to 50 km/h, meaning you might want to tie down any lawn furniture.

Thursday and Friday won’t see rain but are predicted by the weather agency to come with a mix of sunny and cloudy skies, highs of 26°C and 27°C respectively, followed by a warm but rainy weekend.

So while the next few days won’t bring the sun we’ve grown accustomed to in the city, it’ll be a nice chance to cool off — especially before moving day.
