Environment Canada issued a winter storm warning for the Greater Montreal area.

Heavy snow began early Monday afternoon amounting up to 24 centimetres.

Visibility is "near-zero" at times due to snowfall and high winds, the agency states. 

"Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow," Environment Canada noted. "These poor weather conditions will persist into the evening."
