Quebec has had many storms

Weeks after Hurricane Fiona caused extensive damage, Îles-de-la-Madeleine will face a fall storm on Saturday, but the rest of Quebec will not be left with heavy rainfall. Rain is expected in the south. And a blizzard on the north shore.

Environment Canada issued an informational bulletin on tropical cyclones Wednesday morning, not only for the Maritime Provinces, but also for the Magdalen Islands due to the arrival of Storm Nicole.

However, it will be a fall storm that will affect the coasts as Nicole should become a post-tropical southerly over Canadian lands before Saturday evening.

“Storm Nicole will run out of steam and become a major source of moisture as it interacts with another system from Ontario,” Environment Canada meteorologist Marie-Ave Giguere explained in an interview with the agency. QMI.

In Îles-de-la-Madeleine, we see winds of 90, 100 km/h. It’s not unheard of and it meets the alarm criteria,” he said.

However, the winds will not be the same as the previous storm. “When Fiona hit the Magdalen Islands, the winds were still hurricane-force winds, not this time, and the storm is moving fast,” confirmed Ms Giguere.

The rest of Quebec is not spared from the remnants of Hurricane Nicole, as heavy rain is expected in the south of the province from Friday night into Saturday, from Montreal to Quebec, passing through the eastern cities and Beaux.

Light freezing rain and snow could affect the Gaspésie Mountains, with the north coast expected to receive “good snow” on Saturday.
