Quebecers will have to take advantage of the full sun in force on Friday, as the province risks experiencing meteorological ups and downs over the weekend.
Therefore, the weather will be sunny almost everywhere in Quebec, except in certain areas in the east of the province where clear weather is still expected during the day on Friday.
In Outaouais, Montreal, Quebec or Saguenay, no cloud would disturb this feeling of summer weather, even if temperatures remain within seasonal norms.
Instead, on Saturday the sky will be covered with lower clouds, causing a slight drop in the mercury, except in western Quebec, where the sun will shine brightly.
Aside from eastern parts of Quebec, sunny weather will be widespread in most regions of the province on Sunday, with pleasant temperatures above 22 degrees.
In Montreal, for example, sunny weather under blue skies will be accompanied by temperatures of 23 degrees, according to Environment Canada.
In the east of the province, the weekend will be disrupted by Hurricane Lee, which will hit the Maritimes causing heavy rain.
The cloudiness will be accompanied by showers in several sectors of the north coast, Bas-Saint-Laurent and, above all, Gaspésie, which will be affected.
Hurricane Lee threatens to affect eastern Quebec
Gaspésie and certain sectors of eastern Quebec will be affected by the secondary effects of Hurricane Lee, which will likely hit the Maritimes on Saturday.
“Hurricane Lee will arrive on Saturday in western Nova Scotia and southern New Brunswick, and will be accompanied by heavy rain, strong winds and large waves,” according to the federal agency.
Environment Canada is predicting heavy rainfall in Gaspésie, which will receive more than 50 millimeters of rain, while strong winds will hit the entire region.
