Windy and cold weekend for Quebec & Ontario
ANOTHER BOSTON BLIZZARD
Another clipper low will dive across Lake Ontario tonight and Saturday with another period of snow and blowing snow for southern Ontario and Quebec. A general 5-7cm is likely, very similar to Thursdays system. As that low reaches the Gulf of Maine it will bomb out becoming a major storm. Eastern New England, including Boston, and Atlantic Canada will see blizzard conditions on Sunday with heavy snow, over 30cm (1 foot) and winds in excess of 100km/h. Coastal flooding is possible from Massachusetts into Nova Scotia. The storm will also pull down very cold air across Quebec. Temperatures this weekend will be frigid around -16C (4F) for highs in Montreal with very strong winds all weekend. Montreal will remain on the edge of the coastal storm with clearing skies on Sunday but windy and cold. No warm air is on the horizon through at least the middle portion of next week.
