Freezing rain warning in effect for Waterloo Region, snow event in Cambridge

Dog freezing rain montreal

Environment Canada has issued a freezing rain warning for much of southern Quebec including Montreal, Quebec City and the Eastern Townships.

Roughly 2-5 centimeters (0.8-2.0 inches) accumulation is expected before the weather switches over to freezing rain in the afternoon.

Another round of snow will develop overnight as well.

The rain is expected to persist for several hours today, but ice accumulation is expected to be limited to a few millimetres, as the rain "should be fairly light".

The snow should end by Sunday evening, EC claims.

Roads, sidewalks, bridges and parking lots may become slippery.

Freezing rain warnings are issued when rain falling in sub-zero temperatures creates ice build-up and icy surfaces.

Motorists should expect a slow commute on the roads and highways with the weather conditions and they are also being advised to use extreme caution on the Sunday drive.

The weather is expected to clear by Sunday evening and into next week.
