There is a major storm that will be hitting the Quebec province on Tuesday night that will continue on Wednesday as well. The snow plows will soon be out on the roads and the highways.
The Environment Canada has issued winter storm warnings for regions, Quebec City, Mauricie, Charlevoix, and Saguenay regions. It is expected that about 15 to 25 centimeters of snow will be hitting these regions. Apart from the snow, these regions will also experience freezing rain and strong winds.
The meteorologist of Environment Canada, Steve Boily, feels that about 10 to 15 min freezing rain will fall on lower Laurentians and Lanaudiere. It would also affect the Saint-Jérôme and Lachute regions. Boily expects a little bit of snow and a good amount of freezing rain in these areas.
The driving conditions will be quite difficult during the Wednesday morning, especially for the commuters who have switched from their winter tires to the summer tires.
Boily said that, “witnessing 20 to 30 cm of snowfall during a single storm in the Quebec City area for the month of April is quite abnormal”. The Transport Ministry has said that the snow removal trucks are all ready to clear the snow from the roads.
