Snowfall amounts for Quebec

Many traffic accidents in Quebec City

Weather summary for Quebec – Environment Canada at 11:53 a.m. Tuesday 13 December 2016.

Monday, a low pressure system from the Great Lakes gave significant snowfall amounts to several regions of Quebec while moving towards the east coast. This snowfall led to many travel delays. In addition, blowing snow reduced visibilities over regions more exposed to winds, especially in the Quebec City area, where many traffic accidents were reported.
