Special Weather Statement

Issued at 11:31 Friday 18 January 2019
Summary

Snow and blowing snow on tap

An intense winter storm will track across New England Sunday, then across the Gulf of St. Lawrence on Monday. It will bring significant amounts of snow and generate very strong and frigid northerly winds producing blowing snow that will considerably reduce visibilities and make roadways very slippery.

This storm should invade the province of Quebec and affect areas near and south of the St. Lawrence River on Sunday, then the Lower North Shore on Monday.

However, the expected scenario depends greatly on the exact track of the storm which is still volatile and uncertain. A track a little further north could mean a major winter storm for all Southern and Eastern Quebec and a shift southward would spare several regions. The scenario should become clearer as the event approaches.
