Winter, summer & rain gear, Quebec: 17 reviews and 13 photos
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Quebec City is one of Canada's snowiest cities. On average, we receive 3 m of snow every year but the 2007-2008 winter was our snowiest ever, with about 5.6 m of snow!! It is not rare to see the first snowfall in October, but we sometimes have to wait until January before there is any snow to speak of. As a rule of thumb, the milder the temperature is, the more snow we get!
Temperatures usually drop below 0°C in November, and sometimes drop below -20°C in January and February. Also, thanks to the "wind chill" factor, the coldest days can actually feel like -45°C! Although we might get beautiful sunny days in March, we usually have to wait until April before we can see the snow melt away.
There's very little one can do against the heat, but you can always dress against the cold so if you're planning on visiting Quebec City in winter, make sure to bring a pair of winter boots and a good coat, hat, scarf and gloves. Don't let the cold keep you from enjoying a nice day at the Carnaval or on the slopes!
