Gardeners take heed: a frost advisory remains in effect for parts of southwestern Quebec.

Environment Canada issued the advisory Tuesday afternoon for the following areas:

  • Metro Montréal - Laval
  • Vaudreuil area
  • Valleyfield - Beauharnois area
  • Mont-Orford - Lake Memphrémagog area
  • Sherbrooke area, Que.

Temperatures could fall below the freezing mark, the weather agency warned. A widespread frost event is expected.

Frost may damage some crops in frost-prone areas, and so Environment Canada is suggesting people protect their frost-sensitive plants and trees.

Some good news in the forecast for Montreal: After the rain cleared up Tuesday evening, sunny skies are expected from Wednesday through Saturday.

Temperatures will warm up considerably throughout the week, too. While there’s only a high of 11 degrees Celsius on Wednesday, by Saturday, Montreal will see a high of 27 C.
