Montreal Is In For A Really Disgusting Winter, A New Forecast Shows

MétéoMédia has released its predictions for the season ahead.
Senior Editor

Hope you weren't expecting a picturesque snowy season. MétéoMédia has released its latest Quebec winter forecast and it looks like things could get gross in the Montreal area with a mix of precipitation and temperatures above normal.

While much of the province, including Quebec City, could see a good bit of snow, MétéoMédia singles out the regions of Outaouais, Montreal, Montérégie and Estrie for especially mild weather and "mixtures of rain, snow and ice."

"Arctic air descents are not to be excluded," the network writes, "but they will be less intense and of short duration."

"According to the experts of MétéoMédia, the season will be punctuated by thaws" and "above normal rainfall," as well as a "delayed" start.

"At the beginning of December, the weather is expected to be rather mild," Chief Meteorologist André Monette explained in the report.

Thanks to the La Niña system in the Pacific, the report continues, southern Quebec could see some nasty "precipitation cocktails" with "snowfall turning to rain, interspersed with episodes of ice pellets or sleet."

MétéoMédia doesn't exclude the possibility of snow accumulation, however. It all depends on which areas of the province some "moisture-laden depressions" end up hitting.

To the north, meanwhile, in regions like the Laurentides, Lanaudière, Capitale-Nationale and Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean, the network says above-average snowfall is expected.
