A rare occurrence
Meteorology Since the onset of winter, Quebec has experienced higher than normal temperatures. In fact, since mid-December, there has been no cold eruption. In addition, the nights are much lighter than usual. Wednesday rarely drops below -20 below C. In the metropolitan area, at least this value is not reached.
Well established trend
The first half of January will take place under a mild regime. On average, in Montreal, there are eight nights below -20 below C. But it is not only the metropolitan area that is experiencing a cold shortage. In Saguna and September-Îles, below -20 below C is very rare. These regions, however, are expected to experience nearly twenty in January.
Very different weekend
For the first time since mid-December, mercury will drop near seasonal values. Daytime high in Montreal -7 C.
