The unusually warm temperatures that blanketed southern Ontario yesterday will move into Quebec today, bringing with them some volatile storms.

Montreal is expected to reach a high of 29C, but it will feel much warmer with the humidex. The average temperature for this time of year in Montreal is around 20C, according to Environment Canada.

Yesterday was one of the hottest days of the year in Toronto, with scorching temperatures and high humidity that threatened to break records in southern Ontario.

However, this late summer warm spell likely won’t be the best time to head to the beach in Quebec.

Storms are expected to roll in this afternoon.

“Heavy thundershowers could produce flash flooding, strong winds and some hail,” CBC weather specialist Frank Cavallaro said.

Tomorrow, the high will dip back down to a seasonal 22C, with more showers expected in the afternoon. By the weekend, it will feel more like fall again, with daytime highs peaking at around 17C.
