Quebec is by no means a stranger to November snowfall, but what’s about to happen is “excessive” even by the province’s high and hearty standards.
A merging of two systems will bring heavy snow and strong winds to parts of the province this weekend with additional and several rounds of snow to follow.
“An active storm track is pairing perfectly with some air from Siberia, which will bring temperatures well below seasonal for November,” says Weather Network meteorologist Tyler Hamilton.
“When you look at the entire province, there’s not a single region in Quebec that will be spared from these early season November snows over the next seven to ten days.”
For areas north of the St. Lawrence, between 10-15 cm of snow is expected with greater amounts up to 25 cm possible over the higher grounds of central and eastern Quebec.
A special weather warning has been issued by Environment Canada which comes into effect Friday afternoon.
