(Montreal) Heavy snowfall will hit several regions of Quebec at the end of the week.
Environment Canada issued a special weather report early Thursday morning that forecasts a storm that will dump 15 to 30 centimeters of snow over most areas starting Saturday.
This will be the case for the sectors of Saint-Jérôme, Trois-Rivières, Quebec, Saguenay, Tadoussac, Côte-Nord, Bas-Saint-Laurent, Gaspé and Carleton-sur-Mer.
In the regions of Montreal, Drummondville, Sherbrooke, Thetford Mines, Lac-Mégantic and Saint-Georges, snow could be mixed with rain at the end of the day on Saturday. The quantities of snow could reach 15 centimeters and Environment Canada specifies that there could be in these sectors a rapid accumulation of snow, which could make travel difficult.
The Outaouais, Abitibi-Témiscamingue, Chibougamau and Basse-Côte-Nord regions should not receive significant amounts of snow on the weekend.
