A heat warning is in effect for parts of southern Quebec on this warm Labour Day.
Environment Canada has issued the warning for several areas, including Montreal, Vaudreuil-Dorion and the Eastern Townships.
Humidex values are expected to reach nearly 40 degrees and persist until late evening.
The weather agency also has a severe thunderstorm watch in effect for a large swath of the province.
