First blizzard in southern Quebec

If Environment Canada’s forecast is correct, get ready to work on the road Monday morning as the first blizzard is expected to hit southern Quebec on Monday morning.

Up to 15 centimeters of snow may have fallen in Montreal in the morning.

The weather conditions in Quebec will be the same, with a total of 10 to 20 centimeters at the end of the day.

Anyway, there will be a few millimeters of snow in the morning.

Cubes in many regions will have to deal with the effects of the first major storm of winter on Monday, just like this pedestrian last February.

Environment Canada has forecast strong winds of up to 60 kmph in many parts of the country.

Environmental Canadian meteorologist Maja Rabaik predicts that these cocktails will be enough to create a “crust” of slippery or snowy roads, streets and sidewalks.

To slow down

In this context, Ms. Rabaik notes, “travel can be difficult.”

“The most important first element is slow. If you ever need to brake in an emergency, it can take a while if you know the road is icy,” Nicholas Ryan, director of public affairs at CAA-Quebec, underscores.

Avoid driving distractions such as talking on cell phones and talking to passengers in order to stay focused on the road.

This first blizzard, when the deadline was December 1, will also serve as a reminder to those who arrive late without installing winter tires.

They face fines ranging from $ 200 to $ 300.
