Special Weather Statement

Issued at 15:46 Sunday 14 February 2016
Summary

A weather system expected on Tuesday. A low pressure system developing over the Southern United States will reach Quebec on Tuesday, bringing significant amounts of precipitation. Precipitation will begin as snow over Southern and Eastern Quebec overnight Monday. The snow will change over to freezing rain in several areas during the day on Tuesday. Ice buildup could be significant. Areas north and west of the low's track could see heavy snowfall. As the system continues to track toward Labrador Tuesday night into Wednesday, precipitation will change over to rain in several portions of Central and Eastern Quebec. Strong southerly winds will also develop on the tip of the Gaspé Peninsula and the Lower North Shore. There remains some uncertainty with regard to the low's track. The centre of the low is forecast to track near Montreal, which suggests that the Greater Metropolitan Area will receive significant amounts of precipitation beginning Tuesday morning. Additional information on the types and amounts of precipitation expected for each region are to follow. Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada.

Extreme Cold Warning

Issued at 15:28 Sunday 14 February 2016
Summary

Wind chill values near minus 38 are expected overnight tonight. Watch for cold related symptoms and complaints which include: - Respiratory: shortness of breath, wheezing and cough - Cardiovascular: chest pain and arrhythmias - Circulation: colour change of finger and toes, pain, numbness and tickling sensation in extremities - Muscle: pain, stiffness, swelling, restricted movement, weakness - Skin: itching, pale. If you experience these symptoms when exposed to the cold, move indoors and begin warming. Wear appropriate clothing. - Always wear clothing appropriate for the weather. Synthetic and wool fabrics provide better insulation. Some synthetic fabrics are designed to keep perspiration away from your body which keep you dry and further reduce your risk. - Dress in layers with a wind resistant outer layer. You can remove layers if you get too warm (before you start sweating) or add a layer if you get cold. - Wear warm socks, gloves, a hat and scarf in cold weather. Be sure to cover your nose to protect it. - If you get wet, change into dry clothing as soon as possible. You lose heat faster when you're wet. Extreme cold warnings are issued when very cold temperatures or wind chill creates an elevated risk to health such as frost bite and hypothermia. Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to tempsviolent.quebec@ec.gc.ca or tweet reports to #meteoqc.
