"An area of freezing rain has spread over these areas and is expected to end shortly after midnight," writes EC in a weather statement.
Residents are urged to adjust travel plans accordingly, as surfaces may become icy and slippery.
Meanwhile, a major system currently impacting Ontario and Quebec, will also bring messy weather to Atlantic Canada.
"A bigger system will approach southern parts of the Maritimes and Gaspé Peninsula Sunday into Tuesday," says Weather Network Meteorologist Brian Dillon. "The system will bring a messy mix of heavy rain and snow to the region."
