Warning: Montreal Will Break All-Time Heat Records This Week

As much as we love the summertime and we hate complaining about the heat, it's getting a little but uncomfortable in Montreal lately.

Yesterday, Montreal broke the all-time heat record for July 2nd when temperatures hit 38°C!

And we're about to break a few more records this week because this heat wave is far from over.

  • Today, it will once again feel like 38°C with the humidex, which is perfect if you happen to be a lizard.
  • Wednesday we're expecting as high of 35°C which would shatter the previous record of 33.1°C in 1983.
  • Thursday we're expecting 34°C. The hottest it has ever been on that day was 32.8°C in 2003.
