This Is When The First Snowfall Is Forecasted For Southern Quebec

We won't make it out of this month 🥶
Forecast For First Snowfall In Southern Quebec

The Old Farmer's Almanac has just released their two-month, long-range weather forecast that forecasts when we will see the first snowfall in Southern Quebec.

Take a look at the charts below, because whether you are a lover of the fluffy white stuff or not, it looks like we'll be seeing some snow in Southern Quebec before the end of October.

Which does seem shocking to me, when I think about some of the warm sunny days we've had in the city recently. And I'm in no rush to leave fall behind - it is one of the most romantic and beautiful seasons in Quebec and I just love walking around and soaking it up.

So while snow has its own beauty and majesty... everything has its time and place. And right now we're in PSL season, not parka season. So if it really does snow as early as the Almanac predicts, I'm might be a little bummed.

Take a look at the charts below.

This is what we have to look forward to for the month of October in Southern Quebec, with the first 12 days being pretty accurate for us here in Montreal thus far.

The region can expect their first snowfall between Saturday the 19th and Tuesday the 22nd, when the temperature turns from "cool" to straight-up "cold."

The Almanac also forecasts that November is going to be pretty snowy for Southern Quebec, essentially for the entirety of November from the 14th onwards.

Though the beginning of the month looks nice - I can deal with sunny and cold. I like sunny and cold. It's nice for walks and getting all layered up.

But somewhere in between the 18th and the 25th of November, we're going to get it for real: flurries. 

(What a fantastic word for snow.)

While this doesn't give us much specificity in terms of regions within Southern Quebec, I decided to try and corroborate the Almanac against a long-range meteorological forecast, to see how they would compare.

This is the forecast for the week of October 20th to 24th in Montreal, from The Weather Network. With the average temperature in Montreal between the 19th and the 22nd being only 4°C, it wouldn't take much of a cold front at all to get those temperatures down to freezing, which would leave us with snow, as the Almanac forecasts.

But... we'll just have to wait and see. For now, enjoy the sunny and cool we've got going on and maybe get out there and try and new thing.
