Weather In Quebec: Some Regions Could See 30cm Of Snow This Week

Winter made a sensational start this year as it surprised us with an early snowstorm, freezing temperatures, and ice all in less than two weeks. The province will now have a fairly comfortable start to the week, but it might be just the calm before the storm. Indeed, the weather in Quebec looks quite turbulent this week as up to 30 cm of snow is in the forecast for several regions.

Special bulletins have been issued for the regions in western and central Quebec to warn of a major snow flurry and blowing snow expected in the middle of the week.

According to Environment Canada, "an intense depression from Colorado will reach Quebec" and the snow is expected to start on Wednesday morning.

The regions that will be most affected by this snowstorm are Outaouais, Abitibi, Mauricie, Laurentides, and Lanaudière. These areas could receive more than 30 cm of snow.

For more southerly regions, such as the metropolitan region, the Eastern Townships and Montérégie, this storm will fall as 25 mm of rain.

No region will be spared and we will all have to take out our boots, either in winter or in the rain.

In addition to these accumulations, another special guest will also join in this weather cocktail, as meteorologists predict wind gusts of up to 60 km/h.

Road conditions could be more difficult. Indeed, with all this wind and precipitation, visibility will be reduced.

Calm should return to the province on Thursday as the sun comes up, but temperatures could drop below freezing.
