First SNOW

Photos of the first accumulating snow of the season
morning on the West Island of Montreal.

As expected weak low pressure moved across the area overnight and the light rain changed to light snow at around 1am in Montreal. As of 8am about 2cm had accumulated locally with another 1cm or so expected. Roads are slick in spots especially in your own neighborhood, with numerous accidents reported. SLOW DOWN. The snow should end by noon with clearing skies and dropping temperatures to a low of -5C tonight. The balance of the week will be unsettled with another major storm on Thursday. That system will bring rain to the valley but heavy wet snow is possible northwest of Montreal. We will have to nail down the track of the system as each successive computer run is bringing more of a western tack through the region which would mean rain not snow for Montreal. More later today on that system.
