Hydrate This Weekend — It Could Feel Like 40 Degrees In Montreal For A Few Days

Brace yourselves for a heatwave! Environment Canada has issued a special weather alert for Montreal, Laval, Longueuil-Varennes and Châteauguay-La Prairie, warning that it could feel like 40 degrees with humidex values from Sunday to Tuesday.

This is because a "warm and humid air mass will track into the province" over the weekend, the weather authority stated.

Environment Canada said without humidex, temperatures in these areas could reach or exceed 30 degrees.

It will be warm at night as well, according to Environment Canada, with overnight lows near 20 degrees.

The special weather warning advised Montrealers to take these precautions during the weekend heat wave:

  • Never leave a child or a baby alone in a vehicle or a poorly ventilated room, even for a few minutes

  • Check on your loved ones, especially those who are vulnerable or living alone

  • Drink six to eight glasses of water per day, as appropriate

  • Avoid alcoholic beverages

  • If you can, spend at least two hours a day in an air-conditioned or cool place

  • Take at least one cool shower or bath per day, or cool your skin several times per day with wet towels

  • Limit physical activity

  • Wear light clothes
