Here's How Tropical Storm Henri May Affect Quebec Weather

There is currently an SOS Alert in effect for Tropical Storm Henri, which is making its way through Long Island, New York and moving northwest toward New England. And with Montreal located only 600 kilometres from the iconic American island, the effects of Henri could be felt all the way to our province.

In a newsletter issued for 23 areas of New England, Environment Canada indicates that a wave of moisture from Henri will cross the southern Maritimes early next week and "may spread northward over southern Quebec."

The first effects of Henri in Quebec are likely to only be felt starting August 23, in the form of light or moderate rain.

And in regards to the heatwave linked to the humidity that the province is undergoing, it's not going away just yet. There are currently 20 sectors in the south of Quebec that are on heat alert.

Montrealers will have to wait until next Friday, August 27, before losing 15 degrees of humidex.
