Snow mixed with ice pellets with total accumulations between 15 and 25 centimetres is expected. A system tracking toward the east American seabord will generate heavy snowfall over Quebec on Tuesday. Precipitation will begin on Monday night as snow and ice pellets. Fifteen centimetres of snow are expected south of St. Lawrence River but the higher amounts will be north of the St. Lawrence.
