Strong winds, abundant precipitation: a major system is taking shape

A strong low pressure system is on radar. Hailing from Colorado, this disturbance is laden with moisture from the Gulf of Mexico. It risks opening the door to a mass of warm air, which will interact with the Arctic air, which is firmly planted in the north of the continent. This contrast in temperatures could therefore fuel the depression, and encourage the presence of strong winds.

heavy rainfall

Southern Quebec is at high risk of getting rain, while regions further north, such as Abitibi-Témiscamingue and Côte-Nord, could be entitled to good amounts of snow. However, the trajectory of its low pressure center would rise near James Bay, according to current forecasts. This means that mild air could settle quite far to the north, so the majority of areas could get rain.

For now, it is difficult to accurately predict the nature and distribution of precipitation. However, in any case, they should be abundant. The situation will evolve over the next few days, and will be monitored.

Behind this disturbance, snowflakes could fall over the entire territory.

Forts vents

Gusts of up to 80 km/h could blow in the St. Lawrence Valley. In eastern Quebec, peaks at 100 km / h are possible, especially in the Magdalen Islands.

If they occur, such gusts could cause power outages and property damage.
