Winter isn’t over yet.

Environment Canada issued Wednesday snowfall and winter storm warnings for a swath of southern Quebec.

The weather agency warns that up to 20 centimetres of snow is expected for several regions, including Montreal.

A messy winter cocktail is expected. The snow could be mixed with rain beginning Wednesday night before changing into heavy snow the next day.
