Montreal Expecting Severe Thunderstorms And A Risk Of Tornado

Montreal has experienced some truly beautiful weather this summer. We were fortunate enough to enjoy days filled with sunshine, with some small bouts of rain.

Even with summer coming to an end, the temperature is saying otherwise. Today has been so hot that a heat warning was issued from Environment Canada, because we can expect it to reach 40°C!

This kind of extreme weather makes me want to stay inside a cool building all day long, or at least eat ice cream, sitting beside a fan. 

That isn't the only extreme weather that we could be experiencing for today!

Environment Canada just released another weather warning at 11:53 this morning for a "severe thunderstorm" with a chance of tornados! 

Via Environment Canada

According to Environment Canada, conditions are favourable to produce a severe thunderstorm, and can produce large hail, torrential rains, and damaging winds. 

These damaging winds can easily toss objects in the air (such as vehicles), destroy buildings, and uproot trees. 

And as if that wasn't bad enough there is also a risk of tornadoes.

This warning is in effect for the following areas:

  • Châteauguay - La Prairie area
  • Laval area
  • Longueuil - Varennes area
  • Montréal Island area

Hopefully we won't have to run for cover!
