Winter storm warning issued in southern Quebec, 25 cm of snow possible in Montreal

Winter storm warning issued in southern Quebec, 25 cm of snow possible in Montreal

Did anyone really ask for another whack of snow? Well, southern Quebec is about to get some more winter weather.

Environment Canada has issued a winter storm warning for parts of the province, including Montreal. A low-pressure system is moving in from Colorado — and gaining steam as it does.

The city is set to get a heavy snowfall mixed with freezing rain in time for the weekend.

“More sustained snow will gradually begin on Thursday evening over Southern Quebec,” the agency said in its updated warning Thursday morning. “A total of 15 to 25 centimetres of snow is expected over these areas.”

Other regions, including the Laurentians, are also expected to get similar amounts. This is revised from an earlier statement that the snowfall could have reached up to 40 centimetres.

Winter weather will also descend on Quebec City and possibly accompanied by blowing snow over some areas north of the St. Lawrence River.

Montreal is perhaps lucky, though. Other areas, like the Gaspé could see up to 30 centimetres of snow by the time the storm is over.

Environment Canada says the rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult, too. Drivers are advised to be ready for “quickly changing and deteriorating” conditions.

Aside from heavy snow, southern and central Quebec will see ice pellets and maybe even some freezing rain on Friday morning.

“Finally, as the cold front passes on Friday evening, precipitation is expected to change back to flurries and taper off overnight,” the statement reads.
