April 24, 2012 — A spring storm brought a messy mix of snow, rain and damaging winds to Quebec on Monday. Gusts up to 100 km/h were reported.
Just days after heavy snow blasted northern Ontario and parts of Quebec, a system that moved in from the U.S. brought another messy mix to the provinces Monday.
"We had snow in some parts of Quebec and rain in others," said Amanda De Monte, a meteorologist at The Weather Network. "Still, the big story across the province was the wind."
The same storm system has been bringing a messy mix of weather to Ontario and drenching rain to the Maritimes. The worst may be over for southern sections of Quebec, but not everyone is in the clear just yet.†
"This storm will continue to track north, bringing snow and freezing rain to northern Quebec and Labrador into Tuesday," explains Gina Ressler, another meteorologist at The Weather Network. "The rain is tapering off in the south, and the winds will begin to die down as well."
