Meteorologists Are Finally Promising August Weather In Montreal Will Be Cooler Than July

Montreal has just experienced a major heatwave: in July, the city experienced 15 days with humidex above 35 degrees.

And, though the mercury seems to have dipped a little, temperatures will remain high this week. However, there is some good news! Meteorologists are promising that there's light at the end of the tunnel.

The Weather Network predicts that, after the first weekend of August, a pattern change will lead to a cooler-than-usual August. Your poor fan, which has been working overtime, might finally get a little break.

The weather network says that last month's weather pattern, which brought above-normal temperatures to Ontario and Quebec and cooler weather to Western Canada, will reverse.

This means that the dominant jet stream pattern will now bring warmer weather to British Columbia and Alberta and "a cooler pattern to Ontario and Quebec."

The Weather Network does note that there is still a lot of uncertainty around the model, and that temperatures may be closer to what we'd normally expect around this time of the year.

At the very least, they're not predicting above-seasonal temperatures.

It's also worth noting that this weather reversal does not exclude the possibility of an "Indian summer": the network states that at least one more pattern change is expected before fall.

The Weather Network reassures readers that "For the areas that see a period of cooler weather as we approach mid-August, this does not represent the end of summer or an early start to fall."

If you're looking for things to do to enjoy this cooler weather, why don't you check out our list of free things to do this August. And, if you're stumped for ideas this weekend, check out our guide to the city's best weekend activities.
