Southern Quebec including metro Montreal.
Winter Storm Warning: St Lawrence Valley and Eastern Ontario.
|Heavy snow slowed the morning commute to a crawl in Montreal this morning.|
In Montreal the snow should mix with and change to steady freezing rain by noon as the temperatures warm from -7C (19F) to 0C (32F) for the daytime high. Significant freezing rain is forecast with 10-20mm of ice likely in Montreal. The freezing rain will make driving and waking difficult and could lead to power outages. Winds will pick up in Montreal this afternoon gusting from 40-70km/h. It is unlikely that the temperature will rise above freezing today in the St. Lawrence Valley. The precipitation has meant a long and very slow commute in Montreal. There are also dozens of school closings and delays at Turdeau Airport. The storm will taper off by midnight with a low of -3C (27F) tonight.
