Multiple lightning strikes were recorded in the Montreal area Monday evening, indicating that an early spring (or late winter) storm is underway.

The system that is expected to make a mess of the Tuesday morning commute in southern Ontario will also impact parts of Quebec, bringing rain to the south and snow to the north.

"Parts of southern Quebec could see up to 20 mm of rain through Tuesday," says Weather Network meteorologist Brett Soderholm.

"As the cold front passes there is a chance for a snow/rain mix, but snow is more likely for northern communities."

Monday's balmy temperatures will become a thing of the past by Tuesday, with day time lows expected to dip below the freezing mark. Between 15 and 30 cm of snow could accumulate in the Lac- Saint-Jean and Côte -Nord regions.
