Quebec experiences one last snowfall for February

Precipitation did not seem to deter winter biking enthusiasts on Tuesday in Montreal.

A low pressure system arriving from Ontario has begun to descend on several regions of Quebec along the St. Lawrence River.

Environment Canada has issued weather warnings for part of the Outaouais and the Laurentians as well as for Lanaudière, Laval, Montreal, Montérégie and Centre-du-Québec. Some sectors of Mauricie, Capitale-Nationale and Chaudière-Appalaches are also affected.

The majority of these regions are expected to receive close to 15 centimeters of snow. But some – like Mauricie, Quebec and Charlevoix – could receive up to 20 centimeters.

In any case, the precipitation should stop at the end of the day to give way to clearer skies on Wednesday.

The roadway is already partially covered in snow, from the Outaouais to the Estrie, via Greater Montreal.

Environment Canada advises motorists to [adapt] their driving to changing road conditions, warning that rapid accumulation of snow will make travel difficult and visibility [may] be suddenly reduced by moments in heavy snow.

There could be significant repercussions on rush hour traffic in urban areas, the ministry also warns.
