Messy mix of heavy snow, rain to wallop Quebec

Winter isn't over yet.

With a storm on the way, Environment Canada has issued different weather warnings for several regions across Quebec.

A rainfall warning is in effect for areas in the southern half of the province, including Montreal, Laval, Lachute, the Eastern Townships and Vaudreuil-Soulanges.

Heavy rain is expected to begin this evening and localized flooding in low-lying areas is possible.

The weather agency warns that up to 35 millimetres of rain are expected to fall by Wednesday evening. In areas like Montreal, strong winds could reach 80 km/h.

While Montrealers will likely be spared from snow (for now), many Quebecers won't be so lucky.

Strong winds will develop in the evening, which will lead to blowing snow. Drivers are being asked to be careful on the roads and adjust their driving since visibility will be reduced. 

The Laurentians, Lanaudière and Mont-Tremblant regions are also under a snowfall warning. Those areas could get up to 20 centimetres of snow by Wednesday.
