Some snow Ontario & Quebec

Montreal remains just on the northern edge of this current winter storm. (AccuWeather)
A fast moving winter storm will track from the southern US plains across southern New England today and Wednesday spreading snow across extreme southern Ontario and Quebec. After a partly cloudy day today with a few flurries, clouds will thicken tonight with snow starting overnight in Ontario and by early morning here in Montreal. The snow will fall all day and taper by evening. Amounts will be fairly light here in Montreal, less than 5cm (2 inches). Further southwest 5-15cm (2-6 inches) is expected from Brockville to Windsor along the 401. Travel will be less than ideal in those regions tomorrow. South of Montreal is where the main storm will occur with 15-30cm (6-12 inches) forecast for portions of southern Vermont and central New York into New Hampshire. A winter storm warning is posted for those regions with winter weather advisories for lesser amounts of snow up to the Canadian border. It all clears out by Thursday with sunny cold weather into this upcoming weekend.

Temperatures last night fell rapidly here on L'Ile Perrot, down to -16C (4F) at 2am but cloud cover stopped the free fall and we are currently at -11C (12F). The high today will be -6C (21F). Looking ahead into Sunday another storm in a very active pattern - but it looks like the path of these systems will continue to be well south of Montreal leaving us on the edge. Expecting just flurries at this time and cold once again.
