Winter Storm Warning

This will be brief for the moment with a more detailed update later today. A potent low pressure area is forecast to move out of the Mississippi Valley and across New England on Friday. A large area of precipitation will begin after midnight and last into late Friday across all of southern Quebec. At this time it looks like a snow to freezing rain event with the potential for up to 10cm of snow and 10mm of ice for Montreal and points south, over 15cm of snow north. For this reason weather warnings have been hoisted across the region including southern Quebec and New England. Eastern Ontario has only issued a special weather statement at this time. Snow, sleet and freezing rain will be steady at times and driven around by 40-70km/h winds. Travel will become difficult overnight and early Friday. I will post more later today.
