Most of the snowstorm that was expected to hit the Quebec City area on Thursday passed overnight, leaving a total of 11 centimeters of snow at Jean-Lesage airport.
Certain more mountainous sectors of the region may however observe a slightly greater accumulation. Nevertheless, there are only 2 to 4 centimeters of snow left to fall by the end of the day, indicates Dominic Martel, meteorologist for Environment Canada.
Gusts of 70 km/h in the morning, combined with light snow, are likely to cause blowing snow in places. Visibility could be almost nil in areas along the St. Lawrence River, says Mr. Martel.
A few material accidents and road trips have also occurred on the territory, but there were no major collisions at the time of writing these lines.
The weather should soften during the afternoon, as will the mercury. We showed -19°C with the wind chill in the morning, a figure that will climb to -8°C after dinner.
