If you’ve never experienced such a hot Montreal summer, you’re likely right.
Environment Canada has officially confirmed that July was the hottest one Montreal has seen in 97 years.
There were 11 days where the high was 30 C or higher, normally there would be three of four days.
As well, the temperatures were, on average, three degrees above normal this month — the normal is 21.2 C, and we were at 24.2 C.
We also had more days that usual where we saw a high humidex value.
It was back in 1921, when Montreal had 15 days above 30 C and an average temperature of 24.7 C.
