MétéoMédia is also warning of thunderstorms and a possible tornado risk in some parts of southern Quebec. In these areas, "a warm and humid air mass will persist through Tuesday" with a humidex value of 40 C.
During this time, it is recommended to drink plenty of water and to stay cool. Plus, to watch for the effects of heat illnesses such as swelling, rashes, cramps, fainting, heat exhaustion, heat stroke and worsening of certain health problems.
Here are the areas concerned:
Drummondville - Bois-Francs
Lachute - Saint-Jérôme
Montreal and Laval
Richelieu Valley - Saint-Hyacinthe
Vaudreuil - Soulanges - Huntingdon
According to MétéoMédia, "the risk of thunderstorms extends over a large part of the province. Several areas are in the moderate risk zone, but the areas from Gatineau to Mont-Laurier are in the high-risk zone. Thunderstorm supercells could develop [...] It is in these areas that a tornado could form on Sunday afternoon."
These thunderstorms could be accompanied by "strong winds gusting to 70 km/h as the front passes." Heavy rain and large hail are also possible.

When it comes to weather in Quebec, we know it can be a little all over the place. This week, la belle province is going to see the four seasons in seven days in Quebec as MétéoMédia predicts temperatures of 40 C in some areas and a chance of snow in others.
"At the beginning of the week, over southern Quebec, temperatures will reach 35, or even 40, due to a very present humidex. However, this will be short-lived, as a system will pass over the province on Tuesday. Behind the cold front, temperatures will drop and the contrast will be well felt," MétéoMédia claimed.
"This temperature contrast will be most pronounced for areas a little further north. There could be snow in some areas, such as Fermont." In Fermont, it will be only two degrees on Wednesday night and four degrees during the day.
The sudden drop in temperature could lead to severe thunderstorms and wind gusts of up to 60 km/h on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, 20 to 30 mm of rain are expected in Montreal and Sherbrooke until Thursday evening.

This seems to be a trend across most of Canada. According to the Farmers' Almanac, there will be "greater-than-normal coverage of thunderstorms" over the eastern third of the country and potentially even tornadoes in the Prairies due to severe storms.
Ontario is expected to experience "sweltering heat, frequently" as well as a "showery & thundery" season.
It's projected that the summer heat will build and arrive later than normal, hitting its peak in late August and into early September.
