The unseasonably cold air arrived behind a potent cold front on Tuesday. That front generated a line of strong to severe thunderstorms Tuesday afternoon from just east of Montreal into the Beauce and Townships. There were numerous reports of heavy rainfall, wind damage and hail as well as a confirmed tornado on the ground near Ste-Majorique south of Drummondville. Environment Canada will be investigating the damage today. The tornado prompted an afternoon of tornado warnings across the Beauce as the cells raced east towards the Maine border.
