Several Quebec regions will receive a lot of rain this weekend due to, inter alia, of the remnants of tropical storm Fay that will affect the province Saturday morning.
According to Environment Canada, “the rain associated with this system could generate accumulations of the order of 20 to 40 millimetres on some parts of the south and centre of the province.” “Having said this, it is possible that some sectors receive a total of more than 50 millimetres locally with the additional contribution of thunderstorms that could accompany this system.”
Fay, located on the east coast of the u.s., has started to move north of North Carolina Thursday evening, either in the direction of New England.
According to the meteorologist from Global News Anthony Farnell, “Fay is a weak tropical storm with winds of only 80 km/h, but will produce a lot of rain in the northeast u.s. and southern Quebec”, has he said on Friday.
Southern Ontario and the Atlantic provinces would also feel the passage of the storm.
The rain, Saturday, will be accompanied by temperatures around 26 degrees in the south and the centre-du-Québec.
