Alerts in Effect

Freezing Rain Warning

Issued at 6:55 p.m. EST Monday 22 December 2014
Summary

Ice build-up due to freezing rain is expected or occurring. A low pressure system developing over the Central United States will intensify as it heads toward the Great Lakes. A strong southerly flow will set up over the eastern part of the continent bringing a mild and humid air mass over the province of Quebec. Tuesday, a mixed bag of precipitation will develop over the southern part of the province. A fairly long period of freezing rain is expected over the St Lawrence and Ottawa valleys. Despite the arrival of a milder air mass, persistent northeast winds will feed an influx of cold air near the surface, creating conditions favourable for freezing on exposed surfaces. However, ice accumulation should be between 2 and 5 mm.

Details

Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots will become icy, slippery and hazardous. Take extra care when walking or driving in affected areas. Freezing Rain Warnings are issued when rain falling in sub-zero temperatures creates ice build-up and icy surfaces. Environment Canada meteorologists will update alerts as required. Please continue to monitor your local media or Weatheradio for further updates. If you would like to report severe weather, you can call 1-800-361-0233 or send an email to tempsviolent.quebec@ec.gc.ca. You may also tweet reports of severe weather to #meteoqc.
