The storm in question, is located off the eastern seaboard, moving north towards Cape Cod. Abundant moisture will stream into southern Quebec today. I expect the freezing rain to change to snow shortly, as colder air is drawn into the St. Lawrence Valley. Snowfall will reach 10 to 20cm, with higher amounts northeast of Montreal. Winds are gusting over 50km/h in Montreal this morning, and are expected to increase to as much as 70km/h. Blowing snow is possible later this morning and into the afternoon. Precipitation will not taper off until after midnight. Temperatures will be steady near -3C (27F) for most of the storm.
