Another episode of freezing rain precipitation is expected for the region Monday night.

Environment Canada has published a freezing rain warning, Monday morning. Between 2 to 10 millimeters of freezing rain precipitation is expected. Freezing rain should start in the evening over the western most regions and reach the Montreal area overnight, says Environment Canada. On Tuesday morning, the freezing rain will begin in the Mauricie region and gradually spread eastward through the day.

Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery.

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

Lacolle, Saint-Jean – Marieville, Sorel – Yamaska, Verchères – Beloeil, Hemmingford, Huntingdon, Saint-Rémi, Soulanges, Valleyfield – Beauharnois, Châteauguay – La Prairie, Longueuil – Varennes and Vaudreuil are the areas affected by the warning.
