Precipitations should start in snow and stay in snow north of Montreal. South of Montreal we're expecting snow changing to freezing precip and then rain. Obviously, the St-Lawrence valley could be affected by a prolonged period of freezing rain since it is notorious for funneling cold air from the NE underneath southerly warm air aloft.

What a sucky weather to start the week.
Bah, we'll get lots of snow, some freezing precip and then rain. The snow should all fall during nighttime, making rush hour terrible.

I always wanted to work with extreme weather, become an analyst of some sort. Then, I started doing research and saw all of the advanced math and science it required and I was like "NOOOOOOOOOPE". That stuff isn't my cup of tea.

I'm now a college grad with a journalism degree. Go figure. But I always keep an eye on the weather for old times sake.
That's too bad, it's such and interesting field! I was a bit scared about the advanced math and physics but I managed to pass everything. I found the meteorology courses to be a lot easier than the rest and I was able to go through 3 years of schooling even though half of my courses were making me miserable.
