A stark reminder of winter conditions.

A cold front will sweep across the province of Quebec this evening
and tomorrow, chasing away the mild conditions over the province.
Temperatures will drop by 8 to 10 degrees in a few hours causing
water, if any, to freeze on roads. Some areas will even see a short
episode of freezing rain as the front passes. Behind the front,
several regions will see about 10 centimetres of snow and wind chill
values of minus 15 to minus 25. More seasonal conditions will return
Thursday.



Caution is in order when travelling.
