November 27, 2010 — Quebec could experience another taste of winter when a cold front moves over the province Saturday. The Maritime provinces are also in for snow.

It's not even December yet and the winter weather just keeps on coming.

The same system that brought lake effect flurries to parts of Ontario on Friday and Saturday is quickly moving into Quebec.

A snowsquall watch was in effect on Saturday morning for Metro Montreal - Laval, Laurentians, Upper Gatineau and the Eastern Townships among others.

Freezing rain about two to five millimetres thick coated parts of Quebec.

“There's the potential for heavy flurries and strong winds. We're looking at about a trace to five centimetres in some areas,” explains Mark Robinson, a meteorologist here at The Weather Network.

The system is expected to pass through the region mid-afternoon and from there it'll propel eastward before bringing a snow event to parts of the Maritimes.

There's a chance that driving visibility could be zero and roads could be slippery.

The wintry conditions aren't exactly new for the region. On Friday, a powerful storm brought patches of freezing rain and drizzle throughout Montreal, Quebec and the Eastern Townships. Warnings were in effect for a number of communities in the area.
