According to YUL Weather Records, the last time Montreal experienced this much snow on February 21st was 68 years ago in 1951.

Environment Canada had advised people that there would be an “impact on early morning commute” and that “given the precipitations received since the beginning of winter, the weight of snow and ice on roofs can pose a threat.”

Montreal is slated to deal with another one cm of snow today, according to The Weather Network, before dipping below double-digit temperatures to start the weekend.
