|A rather difficult forecast for Montreal this week with snow, freezing rain and rain. (AccuWeather.com)|
Above and below are pictures I took yesterday while travelling south on the newly opened toll road Autoroute 30 here in the RM of Vaudreuil/Dorion. The long awaited highway opened under bright sunny skies. It offers an alternate route around the city of Montreal to the south joining southwestern Quebec and eastern Ontario traffic to the highways going east to Atlantic Canada and south to New York. The route features a tunnel under the St. Lawrence Seaway as well as two new bridges connecting the north and south shores of the St. Lawrence River. (ValleyWX Pictures).

The balance of the weak will remain unsettled with several more opportunities for wintry precipitation. There may be enough snow to plow but it will be very dependent on the temperatures here in the valley. Most forecast models are having a difficult time with that this morning, so expect snow or rain from Tuesday into Saturday.
