Freezing drizzle advisories are issued when rain falls during sub-zero temperatures that is expected to freeze on contact and create icy surfaces over time.

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

The alert was originally issued early Wednesday morning and was updated early Thursday morning. The alert is in effect for the following areas:

  • Châteauguay – La Prairie area
  • Laval area
  • Longueuil – Varennes area
  • Montréal Island area

Periods of freezing drizzle and temperatures of 0ºC will hang around the city today, according to Environment Canada, before Friday night’s -14ºC could cause for even more freezing.
