There is huge snowstorm headed towards Quebec this weekend, and according to Environment Canada, that storm will be dumping up to 20cm of snow in one day, followed by another 5-10 centimeters a couple of days later.
If that wasn't bad enough, the depression system responsible for that storm will also be bringing the icy temperatures along for the ride.
So it's safe to say we can say goodbye to any hope of having and Indian Summer this year.
But don't panic too much!
So far things look pretty good for Montreal, it seems like the storm will be hitting closer to Quebec city, so as long as there aren't any major wind shifts, then we should be avoiding most of the chaos.
If the weather doesn't change, it looks like we might only get a maximum of 5cm of snow on Sunday, which would be a lot more manageable than 20cm.
After all no one wants to wake up to a snowstorm on a Monday morning.
We hate to burst your "I'm so excited for the weekend" bubble, but sometimes Mother Nature can be a buzzkill. Environment Canada has issued a weather warning for the Montreal area and you're going to want to hold on to your hats for this announcement — literally.
The weather forecast shows strong winds gusting up to 100 km/hr on Saturday evening in the Montréal Island area, Laval area, Longueuil - Varennes area, and Châteauguay - La Prairie area.*
"Loose objects may be tossed by the wind and cause injury or damage," Environment Canada says.
The southwesterly winds will start to diminish later during the night between Saturday and Sunday morning, according to the alert.
Meanwhile, there will probably already be ice on the ground by the time the wind storm rolls around.
Environment Canada is predicting freezing rain to start Saturday morning, building up to a 2 to 5 millimetres layer on the city's surfaces.
Throughout the day, freezing rain is expected to change to regular rain and then temperatures will likely drop down below zero again overnight.
"Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery. Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions," Environment Canada warns.
Between the icy ground and heavy winds, you may want to rethink your weekend plans because it sounds like it's going to be pretty treacherous — and possibly even dangerous — out there. This Saturday night might be more suited to pyjamas, hot cocoa, a warm blanket and a classic Christmas movie from the comfort of your couch.

So how will this all affect us? Well it looks like winter is pretty much cancelled.
According to Environment Canada, Montreal's winters will be warmer, they will start later and finish earlier than normal.
It's a dream come true for many, but it's not all good news.
"White Christmases" will become a rare occurrence, the ski season will terrible, there may be more rain and freezing rain than normal. But worst of all, Montreal could be in for some more flooding like the ones we saw in the spring.
I'm not the only one pissed off about the weather we've been experiencing lately. Montrealers have been expressing their hatred for the non-stop precipitation on twitter and the are results are hilarious.
