Thursday, June 27th 2019, 7:50 pm - Thursday has been another day of severe storms, though not as severe as the day before.
Severe storms were still firing in parts of Quebec Thursday afternoon, though the storms were more scattered than Wednesday's severe outbreak. That's as the heat and humidity continues to grip the region in the lead up to the Canada Day long weekend. More on the timing and impact of these storms, below.

Thunderstorms began as early as Thursday morning, and were still firing as the sun began to set in western parts of the provincem with some reports of hail and local downpours.
But the warnings were dropping slowly, with the storms set to die off completely overnight, though among those areas still seeing severe storms were the capital region and Eastern Townships.
As a cold front advances south through Friday and Saturday, the threat for additional rain showers and thunderstorms persists across southern regions once again, though
"That threat continues into Sunday for the Ottawa and Montreal areas, but spectacular weather will spread across the region behind the cold front, leaving sunshine, low humidity and near seasonal temperatures to round out the long weekend," adds meteorologist Dr. Doug Gillham.
