We all knew it was coming folks, and while we've seen snippets of winter's fury with dropping temperatures and light precipitation, the season's rage will fall from the sky in full force tomorrow, if CTV and this Environment Canada weather warning are to be trusted.
Issued at about 5am this morning, December 8th, Environment Canada has warned the Montréal-Laval area of an intense snowfall that will likely begin Tuesday night, beginning in Southern Quebec then spreading to the central and Eastern areas of the province.
Environment Canada was certain to point out that "it is still too early to forecast precise snowfall" (classic meteorologist move, am I right?) though some regions could get hit with 15 centimetres of snow. Said snow could fall as freezing rain, as temperatures may fluctuate above the zero mark. Fingers crossed.

Montreal's iconic Greenspot restaurant is selling hot dogs for $0.74 this weekend, September 18 and 19, to celebrate its 74th anniversary.
On Facebook, the Saint-Henri institution says it's converting its small parking lot on avenue Greene into a picnic area for the event.
And the wiener fun doesn't stop there. Greenspot is having a contest on its Instagram page where followers have the chance to win 74 hot dogs — a prize they can redeem at their discretion.
The restaurant invites followers to share the Instagram post and tag three friends to enter the contest.
Daily two-for-one deals have also been part of the 74th-anniversary celebrations.
Dating back to 1947, Greenspot serves American and Quebec diner classics (including a long list of hearty poutines) amid retro decor (including individual table jukeboxes — they don't work but they're super charming!).
Get the details on the 74th-anniversary hot dog deal below.
