It’s officially OctSNOWber as Environment Canada has issued a snowfall warning for parts of Quebec.

The weather agency warns that 15 cm of snow is expected in the area of the Laurentian Wildlife Reserve today and this evening, which is located about 130 km from the island of Montreal.

The snowfall alert also extends through the areas of the Apica Mountain, Grands-Jardin Park, and l’Etape, located between Quebec City and Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean regions.

“Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions,” states the alert. “Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations. If visibility is reduced while driving, turn on your lights, and maintain a safe following distance.”

Snowfall warnings are issued when a significant amount of snow is expected to fall.

The Greater Montreal area is dealing with its own onslaught of Mother Nature as 50 to 80 millimetres of rain is expected to pour down through to this evening.
