    MONTREAL | fans of a white Christmas can rejoice as Environment Canada predicts that the south of Quebec will have its first dump of snow in time for the Holidays.

    According to the federal agency, fifteen centimetres could fall as early as Tuesday on the greater Montreal area. “This first lined should delight children, but to encourage more motorists caught in the traffic”, predicts Environment Canada’s weather report special.

    This warning is in effect for the regions of Gatineau, the Laurentians, Lanaudière, Montérégie, Laval and Montreal.

    The snow is expected to begin during the night of Monday to Tuesday and continue during the course of the day. If these forecasts are confirmed, the Greater Montreal area will experience its first winter storm.

    The snow, however, should fall first in southern Ontario, said Environment Canada, which provides that up to ten centimetres will fall in the south of the province in the course of the day Monday.

    Waiting for the snow, Montrealers will have to deal with the cold on Monday, while the mercury will drop down to -10 °C, before rising up to -2 °C with the arrival of the flakes.
