After a fresh blanket of snow over the weekend, Montrealers should brace themselves for round two.

Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for the Greater Montreal area and several other regions in southern Quebec.

A major storm front, bringing with it snow and rain, is expected to hit the area Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. Powerful winds are also expected.

While still too early to tell, with fluctuating temperatures overnight the weather agency says freezing rain is a possibility.

“While the scenario is becoming clearer, there is still some uncertainty regarding the quantities of different types of precipitation to be received,” a statement reads.

Environment Canada warns driving conditions could be hazardous and advises postponing non-essential travel.
