More wintry mix for Montreal

A warm front remains to our southwest this Monday morning with light freezing drizzle still falling here in southern Quebec. It has however warmed to near 0C (32F) here on L'Ile Perrot with colder temperatures around -2C on the island of Montreal, and even colder north and east of the city. Since noon on Sunday around 5cm of snow, sleet and ice have fallen on the city. Another area of precipitation on radar will approach the city just after rush hour with more freezing rain before things quiet down for a few hours. The freezing rain warning remains in effect across southern Quebec and eastern Ontario, but should be lifted by noon. It will be milder today with highs just above freezing at 1 or 2C. Late tonight and on Tuesday another stronger low will lift from the Ohio Valley into upstate New York. It will come very close to Montreal with the threat for snow and rain on the rise once again. If it remains as all snow, over 15cm could fall in the city. It will be a very close call so check back for updates throughout the day.
