Quebecers across the province will have another very hot and sticky day on Monday.
From Val-d'Or to Gaspé via Montreal and Quebec, a humidity ranging from 30°C to 35°C is expected during the day. A stormy disturbance could water the western sector of the province, but everything should stop at the beginning of the night. However, a UV index of up to 8 is still predicted for much of the province, so sunscreen is still in order.
However, the heat should be a little less stifling from Friday, with the passage of a cold front over the province.
Alberta and British Columbia also in the heat
It's not just Quebec that recorded high mercury over the weekend, Alberta and British Columbia both recorded record heat, Environment Canada confirmed late Sunday evening. /p>
