The freezing rain is expected to begin Sunday morning and end in the afternoon.

More risky weather conditions are coming for the Montreal area, with a drizzle starting Saturday afternoon before turning into freezing rain by Sunday. "A brief period of snow may precede the freezing rain but any snowfall accumulations are expected to be minimal".

Brace for it. Freezing rain is on the way, warns Environment Canada.

Motorists should expect a slow commute on the roads and highways with the weather conditions and they are also being advised to use extreme caution on the Sunday drive. "Watch for tail lights ahead and maintain a safe following distance".

The sun will be back by Monday in Montreal, with a high of -5 C, as well as Tuesday with -7 C.
