There may be an expected high of zero today but the temperature is getting set to drop overnight and to stay low as a cold front hits southern Quebec.

In Montreal, while the temperature should remain at zero during the day, a low of -17 C is expected overnight. Monday's weather looks just as cold if not colder, with a high of -11 C and a low of -20 C.

Meanwhile, in Quebec City, Sherbrooke and Saguenay, the low is expected to be -15 C overnight and -25 C on Monday.

Jérémy Bouchez, the editor of a University of Montreal blog on environmental health, points out that Montreal will actually be colder than Svalbard, Norway on Monday.
