Umbrellas will be necessary almost everywhere in Quebec on Tuesday due to rainy and gloomy weather, but the sun will return on Wednesday with more pleasant temperatures.
Certain sectors of the center and east of the province will be especially affected by heavy rains, while Abitibi-Témiscamingue will be spared from bad weather, although it will be a bit cool.
Environment Canada has also issued a special weather forecast for Estrie and Beauce, where heavy rains risk causing flooding, especially in low-lying lands.
“A total of 50 to 60 millimeters of rain is forecast for Tuesday night,” the federal agency said on its website, noting that the intensity of the rain will gradually decrease at the end of the day.
In Montreal and its surroundings, intermittent rains sustained by gusts of 40 km/h are expected in the morning, while temperatures will not exceed 18 degrees, according to the federal agency’s forecasts.
Between 15 and 25 millimeters of rain are expected in Quebec and Charlevoix and slightly less in Saguenay, where the autumn weather will be accompanied by a drop in mercury, since maximum temperatures will not exceed 14 or 15 degrees.
The showers will be even more intense in eastern Quebec, where more than 50 millimeters of rain could fall on Wednesday morning, especially on the north coast and the tip of Gaspé.
Although scattered rain is forecast in certain areas of the east of the province, rising temperatures and generally sunny weather with occasional clouds will return in the rest of Quebec.
