A total of 15 to 25 centimetres of snow could fall by late Tuesday. Another 5 centimetres could fall on Wednesday.
"Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations. There may be a significant impact on rush hour traffic in urban areas," the agency said.
Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for parts of Quebec – rain will turn to snow late Monday, with total estimated dumping of 15-25 cm expected between Monday night and Wednesday.
Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult in some areas, Environment Canada warns, saying that it could cause significant delays during rush hour traffic.
Quebecs winter season will be one of below-average temperatures, but with less snowfall than years prior, according to the Weather Network.
The 2019 "Winter Snapshot," released Monday, says that Eastern Canada – from Ontario to the Atlantic provinces – will experience a seasonal cold snap after the new year.
While weather in December and January will be milder, according to experts, February will be the ideal time to escape to a warmer climate.
And while Quebec is "likely to be spared a good deal of major snowstorms," overall, Montreal can expect a total of 210 cm of snow to fall throughout the season.
Its a decrease from last year when the city was blanketed with 40 cm more than the projected average.
