A blizzard from the U.S. east coast hit Quebec on Tuesday, causing areas to reach more than 30 centimeters.
Snow will reach the southern and central parts of the province during the day on Tuesday and will continue until the evening, the Special Environment Canada Weather Report said.
Accumulations of between 10 and 20 cm are expected in the Montreal and Capitol-National regions as well as in the estuary and buoys.
The snow then moves to the eastern side of the continent, where larger volumes are expected and will continue until Wednesday. Expect more than 30 cm in some areas with snow and strong winds.
“The trajectory of this coastal depression is still uncertain. The amount of ice to be received will vary depending on the trajectory,” Environment Canada said.
The recession will cross the eastern United States on Sunday and will mainly affect the American capital, receiving 10 to 15 centimeters of snow for the first time in ten years.
Close to the Canadian border, the city of Chicago should be thirty centimeters of snow in the evening.
