Just when you thought winter was over, the Quebec weather said "psych!" Although things are certainly looking up for spring, we've got another snowstorm on our hands across the province. Environment Canada has issued a winter snowstorm warning for over 20 regions across Quebec, and it's not looking so hot.

"Hazardous winter conditions are expected," Environment Canada said, with a snowfall of 20 to 35 centimetres expected by Sunday morning. The forecast predicts that areas such as Rimouski, Saguenay and Quebec City will be hit with snow and intense winds.

According to The Weather Network, Montreal could see wind gusts of 60+ km/h, while regions northest of the city can expect wind gusts of up to 100 km/h.

"The gusts could even reach 100 km/h in this sector, Saturday evening. Blowing snow conditions are therefore to be expected and could disrupt road conditions, even when the precipitation stops," The Weather Network said.

The Weather Network said that conditions are expected to improve by Sunday morning, however, by that time, eastern areas of Quebec could see 15 to 30 centimetres of snow.

As for Montreal, conditions won't be nearly as rough as in other regions across Quebec.

Although we'll be getting it somewhat easy, the city and its surrounding areas can still expect an additional 5 to 10 centimetres of snow and heavy winds well into Saturday evening with the weather eventually clearing up just in time to enjoy your Sunday.
