More than 30 regions across Quebec are currently under weather alerts

Feb 2 2021, 9:41 am

There are 33 weather alerts spread out across Quebec today.

Ranging from winter storms, snowfall warnings, and storm surges, Environment Canada is warning that “hazardous winter conditions” are expected for the rest of the day through to Wednesday afternoon.

The storms are related to an “intense low-pressure system over the US Eastern Seaboard” that will continue to track northbound over the next 36 hours.

The weather agency is calling for strong northeast winds, blowing snow, and reduced visibilities. “Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations,” says Environment Canada.

Here’s how the weather alerts spread out across Quebec; some regions are under two alerts simultaneously.
