CTV meteorologist Lori Graham noted on Twitter that today is the seventh consecutive day of sun and dry conditions, a stretch that may be broken on the weekend.

That said, Montrealers shouldn’t necessarily wait for rain to cool off outdoors. Montreal Mayor Valérie Plante says that some boroughs are opening their splash pads and water features in parks early due to the heat wave.

Last year, the first heat wave of the summer in Montreal began on May 19, while in 2020, the first heat wave began one week later, on May 26.
