The weather advisory is in effect for Agawa, Lake Superior Park, Searchmont, Montreal River Harbour, Batchawana Bay, White River and Dubreuilville.
"Travel may be hazardous due to sudden changes in the weather. If visibility is reduced while driving, slow down, watch for taillights ahead and be prepared to stop. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow," Environment Canada said.
