Snow squall threat, dangerous travel in Quebec

Digital writers

Thursday, February 1, 2018, 7:00 PM - Snow squalls continue to impact Quebec, with temperatures expected to plunge into the weekend.

"Visibilities may be suddenly reduced to near zero," says Environment Canada in the widespread snow squall warning issued Thursday. "Travel may be hazardous due to sudden changes in the weather."

Extreme cold warnings also remain in effect for the region, with windchill values in the minus 40s expected Saturday and Sunday.

Abundance of winter ahead

"We'll see an abundance of winter weather during the next two weeks," says The Weather Network meteorologist Dr. Doug Gillham. "We're watching two systems for southern Ontario and Quebec this weekend."

A clipper system could bring widespread snow on Saturday, followed by a second system that will track south of the border on Sunday.

"The exact track of this system is still uncertain and will be closely monitored in the days ahead," Gillham says.

This system will tap into Gulf moisture with significant snow possible in some places.

"The next 10 days will feature colder than seasonal temperatures and an active storm pattern," says Gillham.
