July Is Going To Be Colder Than Ever In Montreal

Don't let today's heat fool you.
July Is Going To Be Colder Than Ever In Montreal

While last year the heatwaves across Quebec took the lives of 66 people, we can expect much less extreme heat this year.

Even though this week has been on the sticky and sweaty side, evenings have been cool, and according to a CJAD interview with Environment Canada meteorologist David Philips, we can expect the cool temperatures to win out for July. 

In fact, this week, even with its heat, is reportedly cooler than this time last year.

The map below, provided by Environment Canada, shows the Quebec region mostly swathed in blue. The legend at the bottom indicates that regions in blue will be seeing below-normal temperatures for the summer season.

While most of the west coast and the Prairies will be suffering from extreme heat, drought, and therefore the continuation of wildfires, Quebec and Ontario will be seeing much less of the heatwaves we grew accustomed to last year.

In an interview with CJAD, Environment Canada meteorologist David Philips explained that there will be much fewer days above 30°C this year.

While we are expecting the next seven days to be the hottest we've seen yet this summer in Montreal, they are still apparently lower than they were this time last year, CJAD notes.

While the map above shows we can expect a 30°C day next Thursday (where it's apparently going to feel like 36°C), it's no question that temperatures have been dropping drastically overnight and mornings have been as low as 17°C some days.

Based on the May and June patterns, we can definitely expect the majority of weather patterns to err on the cooler side, as we reported in our initial Quebec summer weather forecast.

We'll just have to wait and see what actually happens!
