8:35 PM EDT Monday 10 March 2014
Special weather statement in effect for:
- Richelieu Valley - Saint-Hyacinthe
Winter isn T over, with snow and strong winds expected on Wednesday
A storm system will develop over the Southern United States on
Tuesday and move up the Appalachians toward the Maritimes on
Wednesday. Although the system's exact track remains uncertain,
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 on Wednesday over the Eastern Townships and areas
along the U.S. border. It will reach the Lower North Shore on
Thursday. Significant snowfall amounts are expected and winds will
cause blowing snow. Should the system track more to the west than
forecast, these conditions could also affect the St Lawrence Valley.
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.
