First Snowstorm of the Winter!

I know some have been praying for it, and some have been hoping that it would hold off a little while longer, but it looks like the first snowstorm of this winter will be hitting Montreal starting tomorrow evening. We should be getting a good 20+ cm. For a winter that started off with so little snow, we seem to be getting all of it at around the same time.

For those who have to drive be careful on the roads!

I can tell you one thing...Winter is sure in "Fraser's Blower" in Quebec City for two weeks now.

Montreal and winter are a balance, the real blizzard was the Anglo coach. Been snowing for over a week in that sense!

Looks like it's going to be warm. Hopefully it's all snow and not a mix of crap.

I don't mind snow but if there is "verglas" too as rumored then this is going to suck.

Looking at the latest models I think 20 cm is out of reach for Montreal...

You're right, looks like Montreal will be just warm enough so that it'll be more rain than expected! Although the weather forecasters are rarely right, so who knows anymore

I don't see what the big deal is. We should all be used to it by now.. winters are very mild compared to 15-20 years ago.

2 or 3 years ago we had 2 very big winters in a row, snow-wise, including the 2nd or 3rd biggest ever, since we have records... it just varies a lot

Milder equates to more snow. Winters are getting milder.

I'd say within 48h they're pretty good but you can never predict with absolute certainty the track of a storm.

So Montreal might be all rain, Laurentides, Québec and Saguenay all snow. Difficult conditions ahead for these regions as it's going to be windy tomorrow.

I agree! I think what's even more difficult in this case is gauging the temperature as 1 degree will make all the difference in Montreal. They say it'll be 1 degree in Montreal, but if it ends up being zero, it will change everything. Some areas just north of Montreal in Laval, Blainville or Terrebonne could be all snow.

Yeah, it's that crazy. I just checked again and there is a slight possibility of freezing rain for tonight but I have my doubts on that. Other than that I think Montreal can expect up to 5 cm of snow tomorrow afternoon as the temperature drops below 0 C, with winds above 30 km/h. great day to stay home haha
