It's Going To Be Unbearably Hot With Severe Thunderstorms All Week In Montreal
The... best of both worlds?
If you've been feeling over the heat lately, you're not going to like what's coming. We're in for a super hot week in Montreal, with seven straight days of 30°C temperatures.
On top of that, we've also got five days of rain to look forward to, a couple of which are guaranteed to be intense thunderstorms.
Usually, a thunderstorm means a break in the heat... but these babies are clearly being fueled by the heat and they're going to be doing nothing to cool us off.
Below is the 7-day forecast, courtesy of The Weather Network. As you can see, it's going to feel like 30°C or hotter every single day from now until next Tuesday.
Sure, the heat is to be expected in July, we all knew this was coming. But I could really do without the humidity.
It's also clearly going to rain a TON this week, with Thursday, Friday AND Saturday all calling for thunderstorms.
The thunderstorm expected for Thursday is looking like it's going to be a real doozy, too. The Weather Network is predicting it's going to bring us somewhere between 25mm and 35mm of rain.
That's no light drizzle, my friends! That sounds more like it's going to pour all day long, and furiously.
To be honest, I kinda love a good thunderstorm... but only if I can enjoy the thunder and lightning from the comfort of my cozy house.
Montreal is no stranger to storms, whether they be snow storms or rain storms, but that doesn't mean you can get yourself prepared.
If you've got anything loose chilling in your backyard or on your balcony, you might want to bring it inside, as the wind is going to be blowing pretty strong.
We just need to cross our fingers that the city doesn't end up looking like the pictures above, taken in 2017 after a particularly nast storm that hit hard in Cote-des-Neiges.
