It's Going To Be Snowy AF In Montreal Today, Bust Out The Sleds

Environment Canada is warning Montrealers — and folks living in surrounding areas — that today is going to be snowy AF. 

The snowfall warning is in effect on January 2 for Châteauguay - La Prairie, Laval, Longueuil - Varennes, and Montreal Island.

15 cm Expected by the end of the day on January 2

"Rapidly accumulating snow will make travel difficult," reads an alert on the Environment Canada website

"Snowfall warnings are issued when significant snowfall is expected."

Although 15 cm is expected by the end of the day, the hourly forecast shows that heavy snow will likely stop around noon.

It's also not expected to be particularly cold today with a mix of sun and cloud and highs of -2°C (-10°C with windchill) and lows of -8°C tonight. 

In fact, it might just be a great afternoon for sledding. But do check the conditions at your local hill or desired park before heading out, and be careful on the roads.
