Environment Canada says there is still some uncertainty regarding the low-pressure system’s exact track and the types and amounts of precipitation will depend on how the low-pressure system develops over the next few days.
The agency warns there “could be significant impacts on travel.”
The alert, which was issued in the early hours of Friday morning, is in effect for the following areas:
- Châteauguay – La Prairie area
- Laval area
- Longueuil – Varennes area

Environment Canada urges citizens to continually monitor weather patterns once an alert has been issued.
