|Southwestern Quebec, along with southern Ontario, continues to be exceptionally dry. The Environment Canada map above shows that some areas had as much as 75 to 90 percent less precipitation than normal for June 2016.|
That brings us to this weekend. Multiple areas of low pressure will impact Ontario and Quebec, as they slowly move northeast into Atlantic Canada. After a partly cloudy and humid Friday, with a high near 26C (79F), clouds will be on the increase tonight. Showers and thunderstorms will develop overnight and continue intermittently on Saturday. Gusty winds up to 50km/h will help keep temperatures cooler Saturday and Sunday, around 20C (68F) in Montreal. The weekend rainfall is expected to drop 25-35mm (1 to 1.5 inches) on the region. On Monday, skies will slowly clear out. We are expecting a return to very warm and increasingly humid weather by early next week, with high temperatures once again approaching 30C.
