Blast of winter weather on the way for southern Quebec
Environment Canada issues snowfall warning for several regions, including Vaudreuil-Soulanges
Spring is only a week away, but winter isn't over yet.
Environment Canada has issued a snowfall warning for parts of southern Quebec, including Vaudreuil-Soulanges, the Eastern Townships, Charlevoix and Beauce regions.
It warns that accumulating snow could build up on highways, roads, walkways and parking lots.
A messy cocktail of snow, high winds and storm surges are also in store for the Gaspé, where up to 40 centimetres of snow is expected.
Storm surge warnings are also in effect for Rimouski, Matane, Sainte-Anne-des-Monts and Kamouraska, where water levels are slated to rise starting Wednesday morning.
Montreal won't be spared
While Montreal is not under a snowfall warning, winter weather is still on the way.
There could be up to 12 centimetres of snow on the ground by the end of Tuesday, according to Environment Canada.
The snowfall is expected to continue in Montreal throughout the week, with another four centimetres of snow by Wednesday, followed by periods of snow on Thursday.
Spring-like weather should set in by the weekend. It's expected to be sunny, with a predicted high of 6 C.
