Yesterday there was no snow to be seen out my patio door. Today we got this and a weather warning:
Montréal Island area
Issued at 15:45 Wednesday 06 April 2016
Rain, heavy at times is expected. The frozen ground has a reduced ability to absorb this rainfall. A major system will track across Quebec on Thursday and Friday. Snow will change over to rain as the system approaches. Overall, rainfall amounts will be in the order of 25 to 35 mm over the mentioned areas, except over higher elevations of Central Quebec where rainfall amounts could reach 40 to 50 mm by Friday morning. Localized flooding in low-lying areas is possible.
To put those numbers into perspective, 25.4 mm = 1 inch. Good thing I'm not in a low-lying area.
This is the current view out my patio door, and it's still snowing:
