Snow Could Be Coming To Quebec As Early As This Week

Environment Canada has also issued a Frost Advisory.
Snow In Quebec October 2019
  • With temperatures dropping near the freezing mark overnight tonight, it may snow in Quebec as early as this week.
  • Alberta and Saskatchewan saw serious snowfalls last week and Quebec could be next.
  • Take a look at The Weather Network report below, along with the Frost Advisory issued by Environment Canada.

The Weather Network is forecasting that it could actually snow in Quebec as early as this week, along with several other provinces in Eastern Canada.

Environment Canada has also issued a Frost Advisory for Quebec, with particular focus on most regions in the south and east of the province.

In fact, most regions bordering on the St. Lawrence will see temperatures drop close to or below freezing overnight tonight, meaning we could very likely wake up to a blanket of frost tomorrow morning.

Then, come Friday, there is a good chance that some regions in Eastern Canada could see their first snowfall of the season.

Just last week Alberta and Saskatchewan both saw serious dumps of snow that looked more like the middle of January than the end of September, reminding us all that Mother Nature works on no one's schedule but her own.

So while we've been over her waxing poetic about fall, we could be in for a seriously snowy surprise later this week that would turn any fall foliage dreams you had into cold, wintery nightmares.

In this weekly precipitation forecast for Eastern Canada, provided by The Weather Network, you can see swathes of blue that indicate cooler temperatures prime for turning precipitation into snow.

The meteorologist explains, "we're not looking at as major accumulations as what we saw in Alberta and Saskatchewan, but there are cool enough temperatures coming into play through the evening and overnights where Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland and Labrador could actually see a little snowfall this week."

Environment Canada's Frost Advisory plays into this forecast, as well, considering that these advisories indicate temperatures dropping near or below freezing.

With temperatures that low, any precipitation in the forecast is likely to become snow.

While it looks like it won't be a very heavy snowfall this week, it is crazy to think that Alberta already saw 100 cm and winter hasn't even technically begun yet.

And while some are clearly stoked about the snow... the rest of us would've probably been fine if we didn't have any of the fluffy stuff in the forecast for at least another month.
