Environment Canada has issued a rainfall warning for parts of southern Quebec, including Montreal, Laval, the Montérégie region, and parts of the Laurentides and Lanaudière regions.

The federal weather agency forecasts 10 to 25 millimetres of rain in much of the province. Some areas, it says, already got as much as 60 millimetres between Wednesday night and Thursday morning.

It moreover warns that because the ground is "already near saturation," it "has little ability to absorb further rainfall," adding that "localized flooding in low-lying areas is possible."

The hourly forecast for Montreal shows a high likelihood of precipitation until 6 p.m. Thursday, followed by a lower chance of showers into Friday morning.

Fête Nationale revellers will be happy to know Environment Canada predicts a 0% chance of rain at 8 a.m. Friday — although, at the time of writing, that's as far as their hourly forecast extends.

The weekly forecast shows sun and clouds with a chance of showers and a high of 26 degrees on Saint-Jean.

So far, it looks like the rest of the weekend will be beautiful. EnviroCan forecasts sunny skies and highs of 29 C and 32 C on Saturday and Sunday, respectively.
