feelings until 36

If the month of August promises to be warmer than what we experienced in July, it also comes with a player known for its ability to amplify the heat: humidity. As of Monday afternoon, sentiment could reach 36 in places. This will be the case, for example, in Montreal, Gatineau or Trois-Rivières. The actual temperature is 30 °C.

Return of moisture in Quebec

Why this return of moisture?

The reason for this strong comeback of the Humidex Index: The passage of some low pressure areas that help bring this humidity from the Gulf of Mexico to us. Added to this is the presence of the Bermuda High near the state of Carolina, which increases humidity.

Two systems in sight

The next week will be separated by two episodes of potentially active time. On the first Tuesday, the interaction of moisture with the passage of a cold front could create thunderstorms over the province. Thursday can also be observed with the risk of violent thunderstorms. The passage of these two systems temporarily lowers the temperature and humidex.
