February 19, 2013 — Parts of the province could see more snow between Tuesday and Thursday.

Wind gusts could be as high as 75 km/h in some places

The low pressure system that is set to bring snow to the Maritimes began moving into Quebec Tuesday afternoon.

"Snow will continue through the day Wednesday and taper off during the overnight hours into Thursday morning," says Dayna Vettese, a meteorologist at The Weather Network.

In Montreal, wind gusts 50 km/hour may cause blowing snow and reduce visibility, while communities around the Gaspé peninsula could see gusts as high as 75 km/h.

Eastern and central Quebec are expected to receive the highest accumulations, with as much as 30 cm expected in some places, but snow and blowing snow is likely to create challenges across the region.

This latest round of winter weather comes after a blizzard blanketed parts of Quebec over the weekend. There is already about 60 cm of snow on the ground in the Gaspé peninsula leftover from weekend storm.
