Environment Canada issues severe thunderstorm watch for Montreal

May 4 2018, 9:16 pm

After a 90 km/h wind warning that was issued by Environment Canada earlier this morning, it looks like Montreal weather is only going to get worse.

Just moments ago, Environment Canada issued a severe thunderstorm watch that’s set to affect:

  • Châteauguay – La Prairie area
  • Laval area
  • Longueuil – Varennes area
  • Montréal Island area

The statement claims that “conditions are favourable for the development of severe thunderstorms” which are expected to bring strong gusts of wind and torrential rain along with it.

The notice warns citizens that the strong wind gusts will likely toss loose objects, damage weak buildings, break branches off trees, and possibly overturn large vehicles.

Environment Canada also warns that “hail is also possible” as well as flash floods and water pooling on roads as a result of the heavy downpour.

As it stands, the earlier issued wind warning still remains in effect. Updates will follow as they’re released.
