Quebec will have a period of exceptional heat this week, as the temperatures will vary between 27 and 30 degrees Celsius until at least Sunday.
Environment Canada notes that the mercury will rise significantly above normal. The average temperatures for this time of the year are approximately 23 degrees in the south-west and the centre of the province, and 19 degrees in the east. Some rain is also expected over the next few days.
The meteorologist René Héroux, Environment Canada, note that the summer temperatures tend to prolong these last few years, sometimes even until the month of October. But, according to him, one should not conclude too quickly that this phenomenon is here to stay.
