Winter storm to hit Eastern Canada

The city of Montreal is soon going to be hit by its first major storm of the season. Warnings have been issued for the Montreal area along with much of southern Quebec beginning Tuesday evening.

Environment Canada meteorologist Steve Knott called the upcoming freezing blast “a reasonable-sized storm.”

“It’s not quite a weather bomb, but it’s pretty close to a weather bomb,” Knott said.

It is likely that Montrealers will experience high winds and around 15-20cms of snow. On the other hand, the Eastern Townships might get only 5-10cms of snow together with 20mms of rain.

Moreover, a little pressure building on the North Carolina coast is heading Quebec and would reach Quebec by Wednesday morning. The snow storm will hit southern Quebec areas by Tuesday evening, with a blend of snow and rain in the Eastern Townships and the Beauce.

Wednesday morning is expected to be messy in eastern Ontario and western Quebec, almost a “new experience” for drivers considering how easygoing this winter has been so far, Knott said.

The storm is also forecasted to stir into Labrador on Wednesday evening, leaving behind over 20cms of snow by Thursday, according to Environment Canada, which has yet to issue any snowfall warnings for the province.
