Environment Canada on Tuesday lifted a severe thunderstorm watch from the Montreal area and moved it to southern Quebec as the city prepares to see a drop in temperatures Tuesday night.
The federal agency lifted the weather alert from the Montreal area around 6 a.m. and reissued it for Granby, Sherbrooke, Drummondville, Quebec City and Saint-Georges.
Severe thunderstorm watches are issued when local weather conditions could produce storms accompanied by wind gusts and hail.
Temperatures in Montreal are expected to hover in the mid-20s on Tuesday but include a humidex higher than 30 degrees Celsius.
However, that humidity is expected to dissipate over the course of the day and be followed by a drop in temperature, with a Montreal-area maximum of no more than 14 C forecast for overnight Tuesday-Wednesday.
Wednesday’s forecast calls for generally sunny skies and maximum of 20 C.
