A hot and humid weekend in Quebec
Warning likely to extend into Sunday.
A low pressure system moving into Quebec will usher warm and gradually humid air over western and central parts of the province Saturday.
Temperatures are expected to exceed 30° C south of the province and Humidex could exceed 40. These conditions pose a risk to young children and people with chronic illness.
Conditions may become more comfortable on Sunday as the cold front sweeps through the region. A risk of thunderstorms is possible across western and central Quebec throughout the day.
Strong southerly winds could cause major surf in some coastal communities of eastern Quebec. A storm surge watch has been issued by Environment Canada, as well as Fisheries and Oceans Canada.
