Rain, snow and strong winds early next week.
An intense low pressure system will affect much of the province from Monday afternoon through to Wednesday.
Rainfall amounts of 20 to 40 millimetres are expected over Southern and Central Quebec. This rain will be accompanied by strong winds with well above normal temperatures.
The further east you go, the more rain is expected. The Gaspé Peninsula and the North Shore could see 50 to 80 millimetres of rain between Tuesday and Wednesday. There too, strong northeast winds will combine with the poor weather conditions and could cause coastal flooding in some areas.
Areas further north will receive about 10 centimetres of snow, except the Manicouagan region, which could receive about 20.
It is still too early to give any specifics for the expected scenario. Subsequent weather statements will provide more information as the low pressure system's track becomes more certain.
Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to QCstorm@canada.ca or tweet reports using #QCStorm.
