Snow could turn to rain Thursday morning in the eastern city, with a risk of freezing rain during the transition.

Locally widespread 15 to 25 cm of snow is forecast for the St. Laurence communities, including Montreal and Quebec City, as well as the eastern suburbs.

Snow rates for Montreal are at their highest Thursday before dawn, with a chance of 1-3 inches per hour. Snow combined with gusty winds can create near whiteout conditions at times.

The dangerous winter weather will improve later in the week.
