Environment Canada issues special weather statement for Montreal

Jan 7 2019, 1:59 pm

Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for Montreal to kick off the week.

A low pressure system from the Great Lakes is expected to bring about 10 centimetres of snow to Montreal and its surrounding areas tonight.

Winds will also pick up overnight, according to the weather website, which could create “blowing snow.”

Although Environment Canada’s expected conditions do not meet warning criteria, the website claims there is a strong likelihood that the morning commute in the greater Montreal area will be disrupted.

Luckily, the impact on traffic won’t last too long as the forecast calls for rain in the afternoon.

  • Laval
  • Longueuil – Varennes area
