The notice, which was issued Wednesday, warns that heavy downpour can “cause flash floods and water pooling on roads.”

“Localized flooding in low-lying areas is possible,” it notes.

The warning is in effect for several areas. Among them are Montreal, Lanaudière and Vaudreuil-Soulanges.

The weekend should bring some reprieve for Montreal. Environment Canada is forecasting a mostly dry Saturday with a high of 13 C.
