Rain, snow and fog: The weather upsurge continues on Sunday

Rain, snow and fog: The weather upsurge continues on Sunday

A rainy Sunday morning marked by icy conditions for southern and central Quebec ends the weekend, before Monday morning gives way to moisture-laden heavy snow to start the week.

Following the unseasonably warm temperatures the province will experience this weekend, the weather will cool off late Sunday.

In snow-affected areas including Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean, Les Escoumins, Charlevoix, Quebec and Riviere Manicouagan, surfaces such as “roads, streets, sidewalks and parking lots” are at risk of damage. Icy and slippery, according to Environment Canada.

A government agency is advising motorists to exercise caution due to fog closing roads in central and southern Quebec during the day on Sunday.

The south bank of the St. Lawrence River receives the most rainfall. Rain at first during the day, then heavy snow overnight into Monday morning.

Forecast rain accumulations range from 10 to 20 mm, mixed with snow accumulations of up to 15 cm depending on location.

Monday will be significantly colder, compared to this weekend, with temperatures returning to seasonal norms below zero degrees. Early in the day the snow is heavy and moisture-rich, creating sticky snow that then turns grainy as the day progresses.
