Over the past week, Montreal has received 18.4 cm of snow.
Snowfall combined with cold temperatures has left a blanket of slippery, compacted snow on the ground, which municipal crews will begin to clear tonight. A total of 18.4 cm of snow has fallen in the city since the last removal operation was completed, with another 5-10 cm being added to that today.
That’s enough for the city to decide it’s time to remove the snow.
If you park your car in the street, be aware of parking restrictions and snow blower sirens! Snow clearing operations are most often delayed by illegally-parked cars.
Thankfully, technical progress means you can plan ahead! Click on the link above to see when snow will be removed on each side of your street, and if any additional parking is available near you.
This operation arrives as more snow mixed with warmer weather and rain arrives in the forecast. Temperatures might reach as high as 9°C this Thursday, with rain turning back into snow before the weekend.
