It’s not over yet: more snow on the way for Montreal

Don’t put away the shovels just yet, Montreal
WATCH: The City of Montreal says it is ahead of schedule when it comes to snow removal operations from last week's massive snowstorm. But as Global's Felicia Parrillo explains, city workers won't have much time to rest before the next storm hits. Montreal is expected to see 10 more centimetres of snow by Thursday.

Almost a week after Montreal’s biggest snow storm of the winter, the city said it’s almost done clearing the snow away.

“We figured it would take eight days to complete the operation and actually every borough will be done by tomorrow, Wednesday,” said Philippe Sabourin, city of Montreal spokesperson. “So that means we’re one day ahead.”

The good news: all the snow will soon be hauled away. The bad news? More snow is on the way.

“There is, however, a risk of freezing rain for regions near Montreal, as well as near the U.S. border.”

Environment Canada warns that there may be a significant impact on Thursday morning’s commute.

The organization is also reminding people to clear the snow from their roofs as there is an increased risk of collapse due to the weight of the snow.
