Special Weather Statement in effect for Montreal, southern Quebec and Eastern Ontario for 10-25cm of snow and blowing snow from late Saturday into Sunday.
After a rather mild December and early January, winter weather has started to spread across the country in earnest. Early Friday morning, temperatures are around -20C (-4F) across southern Quebec, along with a gusty northwest wind. Windchill values are as cold as -30C. The cold air poured into the region behind low pressure, that produced 5 to 10cm of fluffy snow across southern Quebec on Thursday.
