“There may be a significant impact on rush hour traffic in urban areas,” the warning reads.

Meanwhile, other areas are under winter storm watch.

The meteorological agency indicates that commuters in Quebec should expect a difficult journey Thursday morning “due to the accumulation of snow on the roads and the low visibility in the heavy snow and blowing snow”.
