Don't panic but snow is on the menu for tonight in southern Quebec and eastern Ontario. We had a very cold start to the day with temperatures down to -8C at the airport early this morning, a far cry from the low teens last week at this time. Highs today under bright sunshine should warm nicely to 3 or 4C before falling back to -3C by midnight. A low pressure area is forecast to cross the Great Lakes and then move along the US border on Wednesday. Light precipitation is expected with this track with some light snow starting overnight and mixing with freezing rain and rain by mid morning Wednesday. We are not looking at much in the way of accumulations, but perhaps a dusting to 2cm locally in Montreal and Ottawa. That will be enough to cover the grassy areas and perhaps make the roads a little slick. Remember folks it is still March. A mild and dry weekend is forecast at this time as high pressure move over the area with normal temperatures.
