|Heat and humidity will surge into southern Ontario and Quebec this weekend. (AccuWeather)|
There is a risk of some severe weather late Sunday and Monday. I understand that I have mentioned this often this summer and seemingly the storms have avoided metro Montreal. They have however affected other portions of southern Quebec, eastern Ontario and northern New England/NY. It is important to remember that thunderstorm activity can be very isolated. That does not diminish the dangers from lightning, hail and winds. If storms are forecast, or a weather watch or warning is in effect, and you have any outdoor activity planned, be aware of the sky. Also when the thunder roars go indoors. Lightning injuries and fatalities have been on the rise across North America this year.
