|A coastal storm will likely leave Montreal on the western edge of the precipitation once again. (AccuWeather)|
Despite Sunday being the first day of spring, a strong ocean storm is forecast to develop along the US east coast by late Saturday and move towards Atlantic Canada by Monday morning. At this time, it looks like Montreal will remain on the western edge of the system, but it bears watching. Measurable snow is possible from the Eastern Townships into New England, with cold northeast winds and a few flurries in Montreal by Sunday night and Monday. A major snowstorm is quite likely for portions of eastern Quebec into New Brunswick and PEI.
