Special Weather Statement

Issued at 05:01 Sunday 14 February 2016
Summary

A weather system to keep an eye on for Tuesday. A low pressure system will develop along the Eastern Seaboard Monday. It will move northeastward and track just south of the border Tuesday. It will then move to lie near the Gaspé Peninsula Wednesday. The track of this system is still uncertain. This low could potentially give significant snowfall amounts over Southern, Central and Eastern Quebec beginning late Monday or early Tuesday. The snow could be mixed with freezing rain, particularly over the Gaspé Peninsula Tuesday evening as the low passes. Further details about snowfall accumulations expected in each area will be provided as the situation develops. 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.

Extreme Cold Warning

Issued at 04:31 Sunday 14 February 2016
Summary

Wind chill values will be between minus 38 and minus 50 this morning and Sunday night in some areas of Northern and Eastern Quebec. 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.
