Monday, June 6, 2022 at 11:20 a.m. – You’ll have to take out your umbrella! This week will be eventful in Quebec, with the passage of several alternating systems. On the menu: gusts and rain.


In short :

  • Multiple systems in a week;
  • Good amounts of rain;
  • Gusts up to 70 km / h in places.

Steady rain

The weather pattern will be quite active this week. With a trough to the north and a ridge to the south, the jet stream will be located over Quebec. A low pressure system will enter from the northwest at the beginning of the week, Monday at the end of the day, and will bring sustained rain. A small risk of overlapping thunderstorms is also present until Tuesday.

Most affected regions

This system, which will affect the province until Wednesday, will dump a good amount of rain, especially for areas in northwestern Quebec. From 30 to 50 mm are possible for example in Abitibi-Témiscamingue. We could even exceed 50 mm in places, including Mont-Laurier.


Defining trajectory

A second system will visit Quebec on Thursday, but its trajectory is still uncertain. If it runs along the coast, it could affect the areas between Estrie and eastern Quebec more. The system could also just graze Quebec, mainly affecting the Gaspé tip and the Lower North Shore. Gusts are also associated with this system and could go up to 70 km / h in places.
