As soon as the time change occurs, we can officially think about the arrival of winter, starting with the first snow… But also storms of all kinds. In Quebec, we should be spoiled quickly. The December weather forecast according to The Farmers’ Almanac calls for a cocktail most unpleasant: freezing rain and snow will kick off the cold season in Canada, and it doesn’t look like it’s going to be mild.
Yes, even if it’s only December 21 which marks the official start of winter, you’ll start shivering – and slipping – well before the holiday season in 2023. Those who dream of a beautiful coat white on the ground for the last month of the year could also be disappointed because it risks being particularly wet.
What will the weather be like in Quebec in December 2023?
According to predictions from the Farmers’ Almanac, very unstable weather will move towards the east of the country from December 1 to 3, bringing with it snow for the provinces of Quebec and New Brunswick . What we call meteorological winter will begin in a big way!
Following this fairly intense start to the last month of the year, we are planning three days of rest where the sky will be mostly clear. This respite will be brief, as freezing rain and a chance of ice and snow are forecast from December 8 to 11. This weekend, generally marked by several office Christmas parties, could come with difficult road conditions and quite a bit of de-icing.
Fortunately, the Farmers’ Almanac predicts that you’ll have time to catch your breath during a second short, rain-free period of clear skies from December 12 to 15.
The following weekend, where your diary could be filled with festivities and visits to Christmas markets, could however surprise us with very low mercury and storms from December 16 to 19. Hello cocktail weather report! For the following days, from the 20th to the 23rd, “threatening skies” are forecast. It’s probably best not to leave your gift shopping at the last minute.
New Year’s Eve and Christmas Day should not be white, to our great despair, while a freezing rain storm is forecast from the 24th to the 27th.
Ultimately, the year will end in a tailspin, while radars indicate unstable weather, once again.
Obviously, we should not let ourselves be discouraged by these predictions for the December 2023 weather in Quebec, as it is difficult to predict everything with accuracy this far in advance. If the Farmers’ Almanac usually has fairly satisfactory general results, we must not forget that Mother Nature always has the last word, and can constantly surprise us.
