Winter Storm Warning
12:00pm: Strong low pressure continues to slowly move down the St. Lawrence Valley towards Quebec at noon. Both Environment Canada and the National Weather Service have issued Winter Storm Warnings for all of the St Lawrence Valley of eastern Ontario and northern New York. Heavy snow has developed in the area and is falling at the rate of 1 inch per hour. There has even been reports of thunder with the snow. I see no reason why this heavy snow will not move into southwest Quebec this afternoon. Look for steady snow and blowing snow all day with accumulations easily reaching 15cm or more. Temperatures will begin to drop as well on increasing northwest winds. Travel is and will continue to be very poor into the overnight hours.
