The early bout of winter weather isn’t over in southern Quebec.
Environment Canada has issued a snow squall watch Friday for several regions across the province. The national weather agency warns intense flurries combined with strong winds could lead to whiteout conditions.
“Travel may be hazardous due to sudden changes in the weather,” it said. “Visibility may be significantly and suddenly reduced to near zero.”
The watch, however, has been lifted to Montreal.
The Société de l’assurance automobile du Québec, the province’s automobile insurance board, is asking drivers to take their time on the road Friday afternoon.
“Slow down, and adapt your driving to road and weather conditions,” the SAAQ said.
A major snowfall hit the province earlier this week. After 20 centimetres of snow blanketed Montreal, snow-removal efforts remain underway in the city.
