We will end the year with a few flurries around today and possibly some heavier squalls into the wee hours of the morning and to start 2013 across southern Quebec and eastern Ontario. Those squalls could drop a quick couple of centimetres of snow along with strong winds and low visibility, so don't be caught off guard if driving late. An arctic cold front will cross the region this evening, so after milder highs of -4C today temperatures will drop rapidly overnight to -12C and remain there on New Years Day. A gusty southwest wind will develop today and then back to the northwest with cold wind chill readings. This sets the stage for a very cold night on Tuesday with lows close to -20C in many areas. Wednesday will not be much warmer with highs only around -15C.
