It’s October, which means one thing: winter is coming.

And while The Weather Network is forecasting Quebec to deal with a “colder than normal winter,” AccuWeather just released their winter forecast and the weather agency is predicting that Montreal is in for plenty of powder.

According to AccuWeather, parts of Canada will experience a rather mild winter, such as British Columbia.

But while the west coast will bask in some warmth, Quebec is looking at blizzards, and not the tasty kind from Dairy Queen.

“A snowy winter is anticipated across a large portion of the province, including Montreal and Quebec City, due to an increased number of moisture-laden storms coming up from the southwest,” states AccuWeather’s outlook.

The bulk of winter, according to AccuWeather’s forecast, is not expected to be “particularly cold” as the core of the season’s Arctic temperatures will be directed westbound.

The latter part of the Quebec winter, however, is expected to come with a “cold spell” as the storm track shifts more toward the Atlantic coast.

Similar to in Ontario, these conditions may cause a good winter for skiers and snowmobilers.

The Weather Network’s extended winter forecast from September indicates that Quebec can expect a “colder than normal winter” for most of the region.

Both weather agency’s predictions are expecting a delayed start to the winter season, similar to last year.

As per AccuWeather, snowfall amounts are expected to trump last year’s totals in Quebec and Ontario which means it might be a good time to start stretching out your back and investing in a sturdy shovel.
