A snow-filled Christmas in Montreal seems unlikely, according to Environment Canada.
With just a week left before the big day, Environment Canada says snow is not likely for Montreal and its surrounding areas.
A weather system is expected for Friday and Saturday but will consist mostly of rain.
The temperature will hover above zero degrees during the start of the weekend, at 5° and 4° respectively for Friday and Saturday before dipping to -4° on Sunday. But, no heavy snowfall will be coming down from the sky along with Santa Claus.
A small amount of snow may fall on Christmas Eve but it will not likely stay on the ground by the following morning.
In an email with Daily Hive, Environment Canada meteorologist Amelie Bertrand said a snowy Montreal Christmas “remains unlikely.” Active weather systems are expected late this week, their precipitation may not come in the form of snow.
