It was in Saint-Anicet that the provincial record was broken, with 25.3°C. The old provincial record dates from November 10, 2020, with 25°C.

Elsewhere in the province

Monthly temperature records were broken for a few cities. This is the case for example in Sherbrooke and Beauceville, with 23°C and 22.7°C respectively. But more than a dozen cities in Quebec are affected by daily heat records. Throughout Quebec, temperatures were abnormally high and well above normal for the season. This is the case for example in Gaspé, where it was 22.2 ° C, but also in Quebec where temperatures rose to 22.5 ° C.


Possible records on Sunday

The heat will continue on Sunday again, even if it should still be slightly cooler than Saturday. Heat records are again possible in some cities in Quebec. This is the case, for example, in Montreal, Gaspé and Sherbrooke. The arrival of a system from the south will bring warm air from the Gulf of Mexico. Temperatures will gradually drop from next week with the passage of a cold front.
