Alerts for: Gaspésie National Park - Murdochville
3:32 PM EDT Monday 10 March 2014
Special weather statement in effect for:
- Gaspésie National Park - Murdochville
Winter is not over, as snow and strong winds are expected on
Wednesday and Thursday.
A storm system will develop over the Southern United States on
Tuesday and move up the Appalachians toward the Maritimes on
Wednesday. The system's exact track remains uncertain, but models
agree that areas near New England, as well as the tip of the Gaspé Peninsula and the Lower North Shore, will be affected.
Snow will begin Wednesday over the Eastern Townships and is expected
to reach the Lower North Shore Thursday. Snowfall amounts could
exceed 15 cm in these regions and winds will cause blowing snow.
In the wake of the low pressure system, Arctic air will move into
most of Southern Quebec on Thursday and Friday. Cold temperatures and
winds will give January-like weather.
These conditions will have a definite impact on road conditions and
activities in southern and Eastern Quebec.
The public is advised to monitor future forecasts and warnings as warnings may be required or extended.
Please monitor the latest forecasts and warnings from Environment Canada at www.weatheroffice.gc.ca.
