WATCH BELOW: ON THE GROUND IN QUEBEC, HEAVY SNOW FALLING
A wintry system that began to track through the province on Friday is set to create a snowy scene for the first spring weekend in Quebec.
The centre of the storm will be largely track through the Gulf of St. Lawrence, but its effects will be wider-reaching as parts the Eastern Townships and higher elevations could see as much as 30 cm of snow. That's in contrast to southern regions, including the city of Montreal, that will likely pick up closer to 10 cm through Saturday morning.
"Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions," warns Environment Canada in a snowfall warning issued for the region.
