Montreal is still recovering from getting hammered with snow last week and it looks like another blend of wintery weather is on its way.

Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for Montreal and its surrounding area which is headlined by more snow and freezing rain.

“A low pressure system with a potential of 10 to 20 centimetres of snow will affect Southern Quebec beginning Wednesday night,” says the alert. “The core of the precipitation is expected to fall as snow. There is however a risk of freezing rain for regions near Montreal, as well as near the US border.”

As more snow is expected to blanket the city by tomorrow night and Thursday afternoon, the statement warns that “there may be a significant impact on the commute Thursday morning.”

Environment Canada concluded the statement by saying that subsequent information will be provided as the low pressure system’s track becomes more certain.
