Significant snowfall expected starting on Friday morning

Environment Canada has issued a special weather advisory, saying that a significant snowfall is expected in the Laval and greater Montreal regions beginning early Friday

According to the national weather service, precipitation is expected to begin Friday morning and quickly accumulate to the point of making travel difficult.

As temperatures will be near the freezing mark, heavy and sticky snow is expected, meaning heavy loads of the white stuff to be cleared from driveways and household entrance steps.

Even if motorists plan to modify or maintain their travel plans, the agency is advising they allow more time on Friday to get to a destination, while being extra cautious.
