An intense winter storm is expected to hit parts of Quebec this weekend and early next week.

“The expected scenario depends greatly on the exact track of the storm, which is still volatile and uncertain,” Environment Canada stated after issuing a special weather statement.

The weather agency said the system will move across New England on Sunday, hitting the Gulf of Saint Lawrence on Monday.
