Montreal weather warning – This winter has certainly been easy so far but the last few days of this decade are going to be a little messy with the weather.
Montreal is expected to receive 20 cm – 25 cm over the nest 24 hours, starting off with freezing rain.
A Snowfall Warning is issued, depending on region, when 10 to 15 cm or more of snow falls within 12 hours or less.
