"Don't store your winter tires just yet."

That's the warning from Environment Canada in a special weather statement issued for parts of Quebec early Wednesday. 

Another system that's threatening Wednesday's commute in Ontario is expected to continue to push east into Quebec Wednesday afternoon.

"Snow develops across southern and central Quebec late Wednesday and continues through to Thursday," says Weather Network meteorologist Doug Gillham.

Significant snowfall accumulation is expected in some places, including the city of Montreal, where 10+ cm could pile up.

Northwestern portions of the province could see over 15 cm of snow.

"However, snow will be wet or mixed with rain over portions of southwestern Quebec, thereby limiting snowfall amounts there," EC adds. "Strong northeasterly winds are expected east of Quebec City on Thursday, which could reduce visibilities in blowing snow."

Those with travel plans are urged to check road conditions and weather forecasts before heading out.
