Quebec Precipitation Chart

Quebec ClimateQuebec encompasses a wide range of climatic conditions. The northern interior has long, very cold winters, often with extreme conditions, and short summers. The southern portion of the province experiences four very distinct seasons, with cold, snowy winters and hot, often humid, summers. Quebec is pretty much a three-season destination -- don't go in winter unless you want to ski. Early spring -- when it's most likely to be damp and chilly -- is probably our least-favorite time to visit, but by late spring, the grass begins to grow and the flowers start to bloom -- it's a lovely time, if brief.
Quebecois know how to cope with winter: They have festivals and carnivals. There's lots of snow, and temperatures range from 7 to 23 F/-15 to -5 C in an average January, though readings below 0 F/-18 C are not uncommon. Warm layers are a must anywhere in wintertime Quebec -- don't forget to take along or buy something to cover your ears and hands. Summer may be surprisingly hot. In Montreal, temperatures slide into the 90s F/32 C, though average summer highs along the lower St. Lawrence are around 80 F/26 C. The Gaspe Peninsula is a little cooler, with nights in the low 50s F/10-12 C. Fall is crisp and bright with colorful foliage. Temperatures range from 42 to 69 F/5 to 20 C.
