Add some dazzling November weather to your 2020 oddity bingo card.
According to The Weather Network, parts of Quebec are about to see a stretch of record-breaking warmth that’s never been experienced before in the month of November.
November is usually associated with gloominess, grey skies, and the season’s first snowfall, but a week of double-digit weather is taking the “brr” out of “November.”

“It’s the November warmth that just keeps going and going and going,” says Weather Network meteorologist Tyler Hamilton. “And it will potentially set long-standing temperature records.”
The warmth spread into southern Ontario and Quebec as of Wednesday, the first day in the extended stretch of what TWN calls, “spectacular fall weather.” Daytime temperatures will reach the upper teens every day for seven consecutive days.
“Feels like” temperatures will hover near 20ºC for the rest of the workweek and into the weekend, while Tuesday is forecasted to top out at 18ºC.
What’s equally impressive is the amount of sunshine, with rain only forecasted on one day (next Wednesday).
In Montreal, the November record to beat is almost a “walk in the park,” says the weather agency, as the previous hottest warm streak was four straight days of 15ºC set in November 2008.
This year, it’s looking like a “guarantee for six days,” says the forecast. “There’s even high confidence that the city will shatter a brand new record, with the potential for the latest 20°C day of the year ever recorded.”
Temperatures are expected to remain on the mild side of seasonal through the end of next week, with no extended periods of cold weather in the long-term forecast and “above seasonal temperatures” through until mid-month.
