Southern Quebec is expected to be smacked with another snow storm, starting tonight.

Environment Canada has issued a warning for much of the region, including Montreal, saying the precipitation will begin as rain before changing to snow this evening.

A total of 15 to 25 centimetres of snow could fall by late Tuesday. Another 5 centimetres could fall on Wednesday. 

"Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations. There may be a significant impact on rush hour traffic in urban areas," the agency said. 

Environment Canada advises people to consider modifying non-essential travel plans.
