Montreal will see both snow and freezing rain this weekend

More risky weather conditions are coming for the Montreal area, with a drizzle starting Saturday afternoon before turning into freezing rain by Sunday.

The forecast is calling for snow transitioning into ice pellets and then into freezing rain come Sunday morning and continuing throughout the day. Between two and five millimetres of freezing rain are expected.

Motorists are urged to slow down as freezing rain hits the Toronto area.

The agency warns that driving conditions could be hazardous and the weather conditions could contribute to transportation delays.




Freezing rain warnings are issued when rain failing in sub-zero temperature creates ice buildup and icy surfaces.

Environment Canada is still urging extra caution on the roads, as surfaces could become icy quickly, making for a slippery commute.

The freezing rain will change to flurries late this afternoon or early evening.

The sun will be back by Monday in Montreal, with a high of -5 C, as well as Tuesday with -7 C.
