Sunday, August 22, 2021 5:44 PM – August weather is likely to be one of the hottest on record in many parts of Quebec, including Montreal. The metropolis experienced its second warmest month of August, at least since the 1970s.
This is official: a second heat wave was recorded in Montreal in August, breaking the 50-year-old record at the same speed. In fact, such a situation has not been observed in the metropolis, at least since the 1970s.
August 2021 will also enter the top five hottest in Montreal. More generally, you can find one of the hottest places in Quebec this month to choose from.
After July 31, Quebec experiences an average of 1.2 heat waves, often less intense than those recorded in July.
August is the best month of summer, as the hot summer months usually end at the same time as July. This year, it’s the exact opposite: in Quebec, if July was cold, August is warmer.
Very hot nights and amazing days
July has an average of six intense nights compared to August four. But this year, only two were recorded in July, and already seven in August. Until next week, hot nights will follow each other, and Montreal can reach up to thirteen nights above twenty degrees. This will break the current record of the strongest twelve nights in 2018. The heat of such a night is the longest recorded for a month in Montreal. The maximum number of six burning nights observed in August 1948.
Add up to seven days with moisture above 35 by Thursday. So far, August has recorded eight days out of four in July. This month can reach a total of fifteen days, so the current record of thirteen days in 1984 has been surpassed.
Ultimately, August 2021 is already part of the top 10 in terms of the number of days that 30 degrees should be displayed over the past 80 years. If all these new days recorded a temperature of 30 degrees, the total would rise to thirteen, a record level in August 1944.
