Environment Canada issued a freezing rain warning on Monday night in parts of southern and western Quebec.
The warning states that a prolonged period of freezing rain is expected at the end of the night as well as in the day of Monday. Between 5 and 15 millimeters of ice are expected to fall, with the largest quantities expected in the Outaouais and regions north of the St. Lawrence River.
A freezing rain warning is issued when rain falls while temperatures are below freezing, causing ice accumulations.
In Montreal, Saint-Jerome and Gatineau, late at night or early in the morning, the rain should be replaced by freezing rain, which will return to rain in the middle of the day. Temperatures will drop below freezing on the night of Tuesday.
In Sherbrooke, there will be some freezing rain. Subsequently, about fifteen centimeters of snow are expected during the day, just like in Quebec, where it will snow until evening. In Trois-Rivieres and Saint-Georges, the snowfall will sometimes be heavy; from 15 to 25 centimeters are provided.
At the end of the night, no slippery roadway was reported on the road network in these areas by Transports Quebec.
In most weather-stricken areas, the rest of the week is mostly cloudy, with diurnal temperatures ranging from 5 to 10 degrees Celsius.
